What to Expect from the Wine and Dine Over The Rhine Food Tour
Walk through pages in a history book as we stroll through Over the Rhine, just a few blocks north of downtown Cincinnati. We begin in beautiful Washington Park dating back to the Victorian era, complete with a bandstand, fountains, statues and majestic trees. It is an 8 acre city oasis. Learn about majestic Music Hall and why it is said to be haunted! Dine in beautiful restored Italianate buildings which were former tenements and corner convenience stores. Did you know you can enjoy East Coast seafood in Cincinnati? Or how does an Artisan flatbread baked in an Old World oven sound?
As we head over to Vine Street, look up and see Cincinnati's famous citizens displayed on multi-story murals all over the neighborhood. It's hard not to window shop as we pass by numerous colorful stores, bars and restaurants! You notice the sidewalks are full of people with lively conversation and it's not even the weekend yet!
Our second tasting may take place in an 18th century German Beer hall, now turned into a snout to tail butchery. You can't get a panini any fresher than that! Or we may just dine in a German restaurant with a roof top view!
The best is yet to come, as we approach our third stop, a brand new urban winery. You will not meet a friendlier staff who love to share their story by engaging you in their wine making process. This boutique winery specialize in handcrafted small batch wines using a process that originated in Italy by the owners family!
Have you been to Argentina? Our third restaurant is owned by two Argentinians who create the best empanadas in the city using their grandmothers recipes. We end the tour on a sweet note where your dessert is created right before our eyes! With a couple shots of liquid nitrogen, fresh cream, sugar and alcohol you have a buzzed ice cream treat! Or how long has been since you tasted a S'more? We know a special place that specializes in homemade marshmallows topped with Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, Oreos or Ruffles potato chips.
