2015's Urban Wine Festival, put on by 1215 Wine Bar & Coffee Lab, was a great success! Thank you for all your support, for coming out, for drinking better wine with us. We'll keep you posted via social media and our website about the next event.
At 1215 we have a certain philosophy: we believe in better wine. We believe wine should speak to a certain place. We believe farmers & winemakers are one in the same. We believe in sustainability. We believe there are good and bad wines, and what sets them apart has nothing to do with price. This is what we mean by better wine. It's what we care about, it's what we pour, it's what we want you to drink.
More than anything, we believe wine is social, without pretension, and for everyday enjoyment.
On Saturday June 13, 2015, we’re putting this philosophy on display in the most accessible & honest way we know how: in a parking lot, surrounded by friends, live music and great food, in the neighborhood we call home.
Join us for the inaugural Urban Wine Festival, in the parking lot next to 1215 Wine Bar & Coffee Lab, on Vine Street in Over The Rhine.
Benefiting: Over the Rhine Community Housing and the Recovery Hotel.
SCHEDULE of EVENTS:
12pm - Seminar: Wines That Speak to a Certain Place
Join our panel of industry experts - faces you know and love from restaurants and bottle shops around town - as we discuss what "terroir" really means, and why it's the hallmark of better wine. How do soil types, farming practices and the culture of a place actually show up in a glass of wine? We'll also discuss how to move wine culture in Cincinnati and beyond toward a greater recognition and demand for wines that express terroir.
2pm to 10pm - Open Tasting
We've carefully selected 24 wines for this event. All styles are here - from big, chewy and bold to light, zippy and mouthwatering. Reds and whites, and some bubbles in between. Check out your UWF Guide for a better understanding of each wine, or chat up the knowledgeable folks pouring for you.
This is the best way to find out what you like, love and never knew existed in wine! It's not all just Pinots and Cabs, friends (but we'll have those too). There's so much to experience and discover.
Tickets are available for purchase on June 13, at the Festival!
