TOURIST STYLE: 1215 Wine Bar

After my post on Cooper’s Hawk I realize I really needed to post about another one of our favorite wine spots in Cincinnati, 1215 Wine Bar. Its this small gem in OTR that has an amazing selection of wines, a great small plates menu, and live music. The best thing about this place is that they have a whole wall of wines sold at the rock bottom price that you can buy and take home or buy and have them serve it to you there!

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

The best thing to try at 1215 is their WINE FLIGHTS!   You get a selection of three wines, and if you ask the bartender he will number them and give you a list of flavors and aromas found in each glass of wine and you have to guess which glass is which description! Its my favorite thing to do! And of course it helps that I always beat David!

Their plates are small, but the quality is amazing! And that honey almond crunch they serve with their cheese plates is AMAZING with blue cheese!

TOURIST STYLE: Cooper’s Hawk in Cincinnati, OH

So if you have read some of my past posts you know David and I love wine. Drinking wine, wineries, if it involves grapes we are thrilled. So of course when we found out there was a great new wine tasting room in Cincinnati, Cooper’s Hawk, we had to go and see what it was all about!

Well the review is in and we had such an AMAZING time. I had briefly heard a few ladies at work discussing the new place so I looked in to it, and found an amazing review describing the place as “a little bit of Napa Valley in Cincinnati” so of course that peaked my interest! We were greeted when we arrived with a small tasting of wine and were told that there was a tasting room, a bar area and restaurant. We decided to start with their deluxe wine tasting which included a house made dessert of our choice. I have never paired dessert with dessert wines before, but let me tell you it was HEAVEN for a girl with a sweet tooth! After a full wine tasting we had an amazing flatbread pizza at the bar. I am telling you if you are ever in Cincinnati and are a wine lover of any kind you really need to check this place out! They also have locations in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, and Wisconsin! I may have been born and raised in Cincinnati, but I still love checking out new attractions in tourist style.
