BookCliff Vineyards is proud to participate in the 6th Annual Mark Vann Foundation Holiday Benefit Concert on Saturday December 6th at the Boulder Theater.
Mark Vann was the founding Banjo player of one of Boulders legendary bands, Leftover Salmon. Sadly Mark passed of Cancer at the age of 39 back in 2002. In celebration of his life and music the Mark Vann Foundation was created to benefit local, national and international charities thru music and art events. Over the past 6 years the Mark Vann Foundation has helped fund organizations ranging from the Boulder Broomfield Community Food Share and Conscious Alliance locally; to the Tipitinas Foundation, the Steam Powered Preservation Society and Rock the Earth amongst more far reaching endeavors. You can even suggest worthy organizations to benefit when visiting the Mark Vann Foundation website.
This years concert will continue to celebrate Marks' life while benefiting people in need. The music will include Vince Herman and Great American Taxi featuring Tim Carbone of Railroad Earth, The Emmitt-Nershi Band and many other special guests announced and unannounced!
In addition to all of the music there will be raffles and a silent auction featuring art, music, concert and festival tickets, and BookCliff Vineyards Wines including one of the last 3 hand painted Scramble Campbell bottles of our 2003 Bordeaux style blend, Ensemble.
So please come on out and join me, your BookCliff Vineyards Sommelier, and plenty of friends you haven't met yet,(and probably some you have), bid on some great items to help get your holiday gift list finished, and enjoy great music while helping people in need and celebrating the life and music of Mark Vann! Remember, Saturday Evening, December 6th at the Boulder Theater.
See you there!

Every year we join the Boulder Chamber of Commerce in their effort to raise money to keep the Flagstaff Star lit on the mountain during the holiday season. The Chamber commissions a new piece of art from a local artist and this year's artist is Linda Sole Faul. The Chamber sells holiday cards with the image of the art and we release our Flagstaff Star wine that has a label with the image of the art; $1.00 of the sale of each bottle goes to the Flagstaff star fund. This is the 6th year that we have participated in the tradition. The wine is available in our tasting room and many Boulder area liquor stores, including:
Liquor Mart - 15th & Canyon
Pettyjohn's Liquor and Wine - 613 South Broadway

It sure is a hot one out there. Why don't you come in for some deliciously cold Touch of Red. If you've never had it, you are missing out. It is a sweet fruity wine (similar to sangria) that we serve chilled and it's just amazing with chocolate. We can also blend it with frozen strawberry lemonade to create the perfect wine slushie for a scorching summer day. Come to our tasting room on 15th and Pearl st. to cool off with some wine. We are open everyday: Sunday 1 pm - 7 pm; Monday thru Thursday 2 pm - 8 pm; Friday 1 pm - 10 pm; Saturday 1 pm - 8 pm.

Last week we had some close calls with frost in the vineyards. Another week of warm weather will hopefully get as past the danger of frost. The old peach growers say that then when the neck of the goose shaped snowfield breaks (melts) then the danger of frost is past. The goose is on the flanks of Grand Mesa and can be seen in the center of the picture above the peach trees. In the picture it is facing to the left. With the extra snow this year and the cooler then usual temperatures it is taking longer this year to get past the frost danger. We are blessed with good vineyard locations that have natural winds that keep the frosts away. Most orchards and vineyards in the Palisade area require large fan units to keep the winds away. This requires getting up in the middle of the night to start the fans and to keep them running. Because of our location we do not even own fan units. The extra investment in buying good vineyard locations is paying off.

....and welcome to what promises to be my first of many blog entries here at BookCliff Vineyards. By way of introduction my name is Mark M. Stephan, Sommelier and Colorado Mountain Region Sales Representative here at BookCliff. I've been with the team here for nearly a year, at the Vineyard, in the Winery and at our Tasting Room in Boulder. Recently I've agreed to open the mountain territories, and represent our fine wines to both restaurants and liquor stores in the high country. I'll be visiting Dillon, Silverthorne, and Breckenridge in the next few weeks. From there we'll be expanding to most of the other Colorado Mountain resort areas.
