The Cincinnati International Wine Festival is a charitable, non-profit organization founded in 1991 to promote the wine industry and raise funds for local charities. The festival continues to grow each year with an increase in winery participation, events and attendance. Your participation allows us to distribute grants to Greater Cincinnati area programs supporting the arts, education, health and human services. The Festival is made up of four prominent events: the Winery Dinners, the Grand Tastings, the Charity Auction and Luncheon, and the Russ Wiles Memorial Golf Tournament. Through these events, the Wine Festival has donated millions of dollars to local charities over the past twenty-seven years.
