Last year - there was the Cincy Brew Bus - this year - we've got the Cincy Wine Wagon!!! The folks at the Brew Bus heard the message loud and clear - Cincinnati loves beer - but they also love Wine! It's the same idea - get on a school bus - ride from place to place - get your drink on!
I took my good friend Leah with me - we noshed and then hopped on the school bus!
Valley Vineyards in Morrow - they met us at the door with sparkling wine - always a treat - totally my favorite thing to drink! It was delicious! They were having a festival so we took a tour downstairs and then enjoyed the festival.
In addition to the winery - they also have a craft brewery - with a tasting room that serves both - so this is for guys & girls!
Raspberry Wine - I'm not much of a wine drinker but this was like a wine cooler! (haha) I'm learning to appreciate wine - it's just taking a little while to do it. :-)
Leah loved it as well!
cookouts every weekend!
After the crab cake - we headed to the bus for stop #2. Here's a bus tip - be one of the first on the bus - it is a school bus and nobody wants the hump seat over the wheel! (Trust me - I had it - you don't want it.)
Vinoklet - in my neck of the woods on old Colerain! Vinoklet houses a restaurant, vineyard, lake and more.
From there - we hit the bus one last time to head back to the center of town and Meier Wine Cellars in Deer Park/Silverton.
Why Should You Go? The Wine Wagon is currently scheduled for a couple of trips a month - the next ones are July 11 & 25 and it's $75/person. It's a lot of fun - the wineries aren't as close together as the breweries so there's a little more bus time - which can get bumpy. But - Mike is a great guide and how bad can anything be when you're drinking for 4 hours. :-)
