One of the things I love most about CLE is how, even in areas you think you know well, there’s usually some hidden gem of a place just waiting to become your new favorite spot. That was certainly true for me at last night’s Ohio Blogging Association meet-up at Wine and Design in Tremont.
Tucked next to St. Theodosius Orthodox Cathedral is this cozy little shop filled with wine, fabulous decor (I had to physically stop myself from buying one of the paintings and just about everything else in there), and Greg, one of the nicest people you’ll meet.
Greg and Dan (who we didn’t get to meet, but I hear is just as sweet as Greg) kindly allowed Wine and Design to be overrun by bloggers for our monthly Ohio Blogging Association meet-up. Tammy of Miss WineOH was our guide for a 6-wine tasting, complimented by some tasty munchies.
The six wines we tasted ranged from a 2010 Monmousseau Champagne to a 2010 Domaine Aime Cabernet Franc to a 2010 Stella Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. The Montepulciano was my favorite and, at $12.99, it didn’t take much time to decide to take home a bottle.
As always, Miss WineOH’s tasting was relaxed, fun, and yet still educational. She has 2 cupcake pairing events in March, so check out her website for details!
Over wine and snacks the conversation ranged from the appreciation of “bubbles” that seems to come in your 30’s to Jump Back Ball (and JBB dresses) to the Cleveland City Living awards to the Madonna concert to paczki.
Getting their wine on were bloggers from:
I always have such a great time at these events, catching up with old friends and making new ones! Cheers to the Ohio Blogging Association, Alicia from Poise in Parma, Tammy from Miss WineOH, and Wine and Design for a fantastic event!
The next Ohio Blogging Association meet-up will be volunteering at the Cleveland Foodbank on Monday, March 12. Check out the Facebook event page for more details.
