Wine Club


UnCorked is the wine club for alumni of the University of Cincinnati. Each month we'll take you to a unique location around the city to sample great food paired with great wine. Events are intimate and limited to a small, exclusive group of guests.

Our upcoming events are listed below. Tickets generally sell out very quickly for UnCorked events, so please email Russell Best to have your name added to our email list. That way you'll be the first to hear when tickets go on sale.
