A Greater Cincinnati historical landmark will soon welcome guests to enjoy an evening of Medieval sophistication.
The Loveland Castle will host a late-summer wine-tasting on its property gardens 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 18. The venue, which overlooks the Little Miami River, will feature string lights, fire pits and live music from Jeff Tucker.
Ticket holders will try a variety of hand-selected wines during the event, and tickets are priced at $50 per person. Guests must be 21 and up to attend, and tickets must be purchased in advanced online.
World War I army medic and Boy Scout troop leader Harry Delos Andrews built the castle, "Chateau Laroche," over the course of 50 years with handmade bricks (formed with quart-sized paper milk cartons) and stones from the nearby river.
Modeled after European castles, the Loveland Castle features towers, a dry moat, hand-tiled ceilings, murder holes and a collection of period weaponry.
The castle grounds are available for picnics, overnights and parties and are rumored to be haunted by a variety of ghosts. The castle is open daily, seasonally, for self-guided tours.
