  Since they opened ten years ago, Wild Women Wine has been a staple in the Denver urban winery scene. Owners Charlene and Ross (the winemaker of it all) are getting ready to celebrate the ten year anniversary of being open; in that time they’ve seen the Colorado Wine scene grow and boutique wineries make their mark.

A MYTH or TRUTH? The month of May has been a fantastic and busy month for Mile High Wine Tours. We’ve had bachelorette wine excursions, anniversaries and other special occasions. The weather in Colorado as many natives know can be unpredictable and this has been specially true for this month. We have had snow, rain and few sunny clear days.
