Winemaker's Dinner with Local Chefs - 2/23/12

You don't want to miss this. This Thursday 2/23/12 we will have the second dinner with local chefs at the winery. This time it is the chef from Salt Bistro in Boulder. Salt has been a great supporter of Colorado wine, showcasing an extensive list of Colorado wines by the glass. We will also have some beer during the dinner. Avery made a barrel aged beer with Cabernet Sauvignon from BookCliff Vineyards. We and (you) are the lucky ones who get a chance to taste this special beer that was sold out in two hours during their release on February 11th - the Recolte Sauvage.

Colorado wine is HIP

Or, Colorado wine will be hip after this year's Drink Local Wine Event held in Denver Colorado Saturday April 28th. And you can be part of if. There are lots of interesting talks and of course lots of drinking including a Twitter Taste Off with the motto, drink, tweet and repeat. To find out whether you want to participate and sign up check out the schedule and sign up

Two of the wines will be from BookCliff and I am curious to find out what people think. This should be fun.
