History

The Cincinnati International Wine Festival gives back locally one glass at a time.

The Cincinnati International Wine Festival is a Cincinnati-based, charitable, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization established to raise funds for local charities through the celebration of the wine industry. This year’s festival features more than 700 wines from 250 wineries across the globe. And it’s all for a great cause.

The festival has granted more than $5.3 million to local charities since its inception in 1991.

The festival benefits 36 Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky arts, education, and health and human services charities, distributing $350,000 in grants in 2017. The patronage and support of the Greater Cincinnati community enable the festival to continue giving back locally, one glass at a time.
