  It’s finally the time of year for concerts, festivals, hiking and camping. If you’re from Colorado, you know that summer can be full of adventure and unforgettable memories.

(Don’t worry, you don’t have to try all the wine if you don’t want to.) The weather is always perfect, the mountain air is refreshing, and the music is exciting. Not only is there wine, but there are amazing food vendors surrounding the festival. The chefs from exquisite restaurants […]

Spring is in the air, and if you’re anything like me, you’re itching to take advantage of the beautiful Colorado weather we’re having. There’s no telling when the next snowstorm may hit, so why not take advantage of this weather when you can? Personally, my version of spending time outside involves a patio or rooftop deck and a delicious drink in my hand. And fortunately for me, Denver has plenty of options that allow me to do such that. Whether it be Downtown, Cherry Creek, or LoHi, there is no shortage of places where I can drink and enjoy this beautiful state I call home.     Avanti F&B, a collective eatery This upscale version of a food court is […]

  Pairing wine with healthy recipes to help you keep up with your 2017 goals. By Epiphinae McClennon Every new year we make the decision to adopt a healthier lifestyle as we reflect on our holiday eating choices. Maybe eating a whole apple pie and washing it down with a half gallon of vanilla spiced egg nog wasn’t the best idea.

While you are trying to establish your new eating regimen, do not try to leave out the wine. You will find that your […]

In a city with a thriving microbrew scene, there is a new trend that is quickly on the rise – Urban Wineries. As the name implies, these establishments make their own wines in and around Denver. While Denver may not be the most ideal location to grow and harvest grapes, local urban wineries import grapes or juice from all over the world to make high quality wine at an affordable price. One of the newest to the scene is Littleton’s Carboy Winery.

Allie Kohler What they say is true; Palisade really is the place where life tastes good all year long. Colorado’s peach and wine capital hosted the 25th Annual Colorado Mountain Winefest this past weekend, and for four days in the small town of Palisade the state’s largest wine festival hosted 50 local wineries, live music, food trucks, educational seminars, chef demonstrations and even a grape stomp.   In celebration of Palisade’s wildly successful fruit and festival season, I’m going to make the perfect end of summer beverage using only the best of its fruitful bounty for Palisade Peach Sangria.   The two focus ingredients for this sangria will be 100% Palisade sourced peaches and  wine. That’s right, the wine too.   Colorado Wine […]
