June is one of my favorite months of the year. Yes, it is the beginning of summer, school is out and vacations begin! However, the reason I get so excited is it is A Taste of Covington time! This annual event, held every June, continues to expand this year with so many opportunities to partake. Here are three tasty ways to truly enjoy these 30 days of yum.

Tasty Treat #1

Each week of A Taste of Covington presents a choice of wine dinners.

If you are looking for a special evening out, the Vintner’s Dinner schedule boasts an expansive selection of outstanding restaurants. Each one features an all-inclusive dinner of four or more courses with wine pairings. Whether you choose the Lebanese deliciousness of Tavi, the Spanish and Cajun tastiness of Valencia or any of the other options, you will have an amazing experience.
