Colorado Mountain Winefest Sells Out – Second Year in a Row

By  | 

The Colorado Association of Viticulture & Enology (CAVE) is proud to announce the success of the 25th Anniversary Colorado Mountain Winefest presented by Alpine Bank! On September 17th, the Festival in the Park was held as the primary fundraiser for CAVE, a non-profit organization that supports Colorado winemakers and the grape growing industry. This year’s festival spanned four days and included over 10 events.

2016 marked the 25th anniversary of Colorado’s largest wine festival, causing events to sell out weeks in advance. Over 6,600 people and 51 Colorado wineries were present for the Festival in the Park on Saturday. Attendees traveled from all over the country – and world – to celebrate with live music, sips of Colorado wine, grape stomping and educational seminars.

“The 25th Anniversary Colorado Mountain Winefest was an absolute success!” said Cassidee Shull, CAVE Executive Director.” It is exciting to see guests travel from all over the world travel to attend Winefest. It truly shows what a great job our Colorado wineries and grape growers are doing.”

The 26th Anniversary Colorado Mountain Winefest will take place September 14-17, 2017 and tickets will go on sale November 28 atwww.ColoradoWinefest.com.
