Here are the week’s best Dayton-area wine tastings

Check out the interesting Italian wines (including some grape varietals that aren’t exactly household names) at the Ray’s Wine Spirits Grill “patio party” tomorrow night. That’s just one of the many lovely events that adorn this amazing list of Dayton-area wine tastings, dinners and special events compiled by a Dayton-based wine listserv, which allows us to copy and paste their work here. And don’t forget about this weekend’s Valley Vineyards Wine & Beer Festival, celebrating 46 years of family ownership. Read on, but caution: thirst ahead.
