“COLORADO WINE or BUST” (Part One)
In taking a summer vacation to see family in Castle Rock, CO I discovered that my timing has been perfect….weather, school schedules and this coming Saturday the annual Colorado Castle Rock WineFest! Approximately twenty six wineries from area wine growing regions, such as: Palisade; Denver; Grand Junction; Sedalia; Greeley and the list goes on.
There is a vast diversity of wines produced in Colorado and I’ve had many of them on my “to drink list” for a long time. The Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce sponsors this event…with live music; food vendors and lots and lots of wine! What more can one ask for? Not much….
Tickets are $37.00 and this is for the Grand Tasting of all wineries. If you’re interested in a winemaker dinner; it’s $84.00 (includes the Grand Tasting). The event is this Saturday, July 20th from 2:00 pm to 8:00pm MDT. If you’re in the area, you have to give this event a try. I’m looking forward to it and will post a second addition post with pictures and wine tasting notes next week.
Best wishes to your summer vacations and don’t forget ~ Colorado Wine Country! Drink Local!
