Monthly Wine Tastings
Every month we host a reservation only wine tasting, usually on a Saturday, from 3-5pm. However, it is possible sometimes that it will be held during the week, though not especially likely. We typically offer 6-7 wines & gourmet appetizers that are kept secret until the time of serving. We appreciate notice if a party has an unforeseen circumstance that results in you not attending. We love doing monthly wine tastings and sharing fun food/wine pairings with you. We thank you for your loyalty and will continue to hold events such as these. For information regarding dates, wines, and reservations, call our store and inquire further.
Uncloistered Monthly Poetry Reading
Every second Sunday of the month. Organizer Jonie McIntire hosts this reading at Calvino's. "This reading series is like no other in Toledo. We bring poets in from around the country, we give new and established Toledo-area poets a forum to share their work, and we are able to pay the poets for their time because of funding provided by an Arts Commission Accelerator Grant made possible through support from ProMedica, the Ohio Arts Council, Surdna Foundation & The Kresge Foundation." -Jonie McIntire via Facebook
We love to be able to accommodate as many customers as possible. With limited seating and a lot of traffic, our dinner service can get busy. We ask that if you're bringing a party to dine with us, whether it be 2 people or 12 people, that you make a reservation for seating if you aren't prepared to wait. Reservations the day of can be made within reason but we appreciate a 24 hour notice. Parties larger than 13 people are asked to reserve our private lounge.

Step into the Calvino's wineshop today and make a new best friend in one of our wide selections of retail wine! If you know what you're looking for, we have many of the usual suspects. If you need guidance in picking something you're unsure about, don't hesitate to ask us, we love turning people on to new and exciting wines! If there is something missing from our shelves you would like to have, run it by us and we will do our best to order some for you as soon as possible. If there's something you love and two bottles just isn't enough, let us know and we will make sure there are more here for you on your next visit. We offer a discount on cases of 12 bottles.
How could we talk about wine and not mention food? Well, wine pairs excellently with our foods, and who would we be if we didn't offer all of the amazing wines we have at retail for dine-in service as well? We charge a very modest $7 corking fee to open any bottle from our shelves and drink it while you dine. A corking fee is a charge added to a bottle of wine purchased at retail minimum from our shelves and then opened while dining. Uncorked more than you can drink? No worries! We are able to allow our customers to cork and legally take home any unfinished bottles of wine. If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to call our store and inquire. Eat, drink, and be happy!
