The 2013 Colorado Urban Winefest is the centerpiece event of the third annual Colorado Wine Week, offering a celebration of Colorado wine and food, restaurants will join dozens of Colorado wineries in creating the ultimate in local wine drinking and eating experiences.
Entrants to Urban Winefest receive free samples of hundreds of Colorado wines, live cooking demonstrations with some of Denver’s best restaurants, live entertainment, and the chance to purchase wine direct from Colorado’s talented winemakers. Food and artisanal vendors will be on hand for cash purchases too.
Urban Winefest began in 2011 as an effort for CAVE to reach well beyond its agricultural roots into an urban environment. This festival, much like its big brother, Colorado Mountain Winefest, is designed to create new Colorado wine experiences with consumers.
It’s typically held in late spring/early summer. It veers from Mountain Winefest by adding bits of the city into it. Traditional food demos have been replaced by food trucks, the location is selected to be within reach (via train, bus, car or bicycle) of the downtown Denver corridor. Plus, it’s the anchor piece of the very successful Colorado Wine Week that brings in participation from dozens of restaurants and wine shops in the Denver metro area.
