Wine Over Water on the Purple People Bridge – 9/19

Looking for an opportunity to enjoy some fabulous wine while supporting a good cause and doing all on top of the Ohio River? Well then Wine Over Water is for you as the wine tasting event will be held on the Purple People Bridge on Saturday, September 19 from 7pm to 10pm and will raise money to repaint the pedestrian/event bridge hosting the event.

The Newport Citizens Advisory Council is hosting the event and says that in addition to raising money to repaint Cincinnati’s second oldest existing river span, it will also raise money for the ECHO Soup Kitchen.

Event organizers say that participants will be sampling a selection of international wines and a variety of offerings from Cincinnati’s best wineries. Many of the local wineries present will also have bottles of wine for sale at the event if you taste one you particularly enjoy. There will also be hors d’oeuvres, live music, and a commemorative tasting glass all for just $20 in advance ($25 at the door). Tickets can be purchased in person at Kentucky Haus (10th & Monroe in Newport) or online here. A valid ID (must be 21 years of age) is required to be admitted to the event.
