Don’t Miss the Boulder Wine Festival Tomorrow
A couple weeks ago we were in Manitou Springs for their wine festival, where they featured wines from across Colorado. We didn’t get a chance to try many wines because we brought our 1 year old beagles, Charlie and Howie, who are in training to be therapy dogs. This was there first festival environment and they did wonderfully, although Charlie was caught dipping his head in the waste bucket. They got more attention from the crowd than we were able to spend on the wine though. So we are off tomorrow, without the pups, to the Boulder Wine Festival.
I read on the festival website that wine making started on the Western Slope a century ago. Also, many vineyards were turned into orchards during prohibition. An interesting piece of state history. Now we have more than 60 wineries. Read more…
Colorado is really moving up in quality of wines. A year ago there was a blind taste test done with California wines, and Colorado won!
I’m really looking forward to Boulder’s wine fest. They’ve done a pretty amazing job of paring the wine tasting with the top local restaurants, so the experience should be flavorful. Any opportunity to head up north to Boulder is also a treat!
