Tip your glasses to Cincinnati’s rich history of winemaking with Dann Woellert, Cincinnati food historian, as he shares the history of Cincinnati wine through four of the Native American grapes that led us through the peak of our winemaking from 1840 to 1870. These specific grapes: the Catawba, Norton, Ives, and Delaware grapes created a unique history that fostered the growth of the California wine industry. Students will enjoy tasting three local Norton wines and will receive a copy of Dann’s new book “Cincinnati Wine: An Effervescent History.”
