Slow Food Columbus

Announcing Slow Wine!

Posted on:


At our last Executive Committee meeting we realized that we don’t hear from all of you as much as we’d like to, so we decided that we’re going to try a new series of events: Slow Wine! The idea is simple: As many of us can make it (usually one or two, probably, but maybe more) will head to a local wine shop, get a glass or a bottle of wine, and just hang out for an hour or so. If any of you — members, nonmembers on the mailing list, people curious about Slow Food, strangers (well… not too strange) — want to drop by for a glass of wine and a chat, feel free! The inaugural Slow Wine evening will be Wednesday, July 23, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Spagio Cellars. We anticipate being at Spagio Cellars approximately every other week at least through July and August.

    I’ll be there at the first Slow Wine. Colleen will try to make it back from Michigan. I imagine at least some of the people there will want to talk about the New York Times article in Wednesday’s paper…. :-/

    Even better! Drink locally produced wine! Kinkead Ridge Winery in Ripley (mine) and Harmony Hill in Bethel come to mind. Our wine store outlets are listed at http://www.KinkeadRidge.com/available.pdf

    Bear,

    Don’t forget about the newest winery in Central Ohio! Via Vecchia Winery located in Powell, Ohio. Their current sales outlet is Whole Foods Market. Hopefully, Via Vecchia is invited to go “head to head” in Wine Clash… it is very good!

    Hey, Michael! We haven’t forgotten you guys. I’m not doing the selecting for this event (which should be a great reassurance to the wine producers of both states!), but as I understand it, the competition is open to any wines that are produced here, from vine to glass. There isn’t a formal application procedure, but rest assured that our expert panel is constantly hard at work, day in and day out, sampling the best that both states have to offer in an attempt to narrow down the field.
