Take a break from Oktoberfest brews with something a bit more grapey.
Saturday, pour yourself a glass of wine (or two or three) as MainStrasse Village gives you the chance for a little weekend wining and dining. The festival features tastings from more than 15 local wineries -- including Baker-Bird Winery, Elk Creek Vineyards, Purple Toad Winery and more -- as well as food, artisans and live entertainment.
So whether you’re looking to sample some local wines, get a taste of perfectly paired food or just want a whole bottle of locally made wine for yourself, you can sip as much as you please.
Rain or shine. 3-10 p.m. $10; admission includes a souvenir wine glass and sample tickets. MainStrasse Village, Sixth and Main streets, Covington, Ky., mainstrasse.org.
