BookCliff Vineyards Winemaker Dinner at Arugula Boulder

Join us right near the summer solstice for a wonderful nearly all local meal.  All the wines are made right here in Boulder by BookCliff Vineyards.  100% of the grapes come from their own vineyards in Palisade, at the head of Colorado’s Grand valley.  All grapes are grown using sustainable farming practices; never using pesticide and herbicide and only using compost as fertilizer.  Founders, owners and winemakers John Garlich and Ulla Merz will be at the dinner to present and discuss their wines.  Chef’s Alec Schuler and Sven Hedenas created the adeptly paired menu using Italian culinary inspiration and as many local products as possible
