Colorado Wine and Food Festival Season

Drew Stofflet, Time Out Wine Columnist at the Aspen Daily News, shares everything you need to know about the Colorado Wine and Food Festival Season!

With so many amazing festivals to choose from it can be hard to pick! Stofflet shares his favorites based “mainly on locale, scenery and of course, charm.”

Intimate and informative, scenic and sensorial, the event takes patrons on a journey through seminars, brunches, lunches, winemakers’ dinners, a Saturday grand tasting and — new this year — a reserve tasting. Sit back and watch the alpenglow recede from Mount Crested Butte as you imbibe and fill your senses. In the same spirit of Telluride’s mission, this festival implores you to “Eat-Drink-Give,” as it is a fundraiser for the Crested Butte Center For The Arts. I like it: drinking (and eating) with a cause. Bonus points if you hike or bike to it!
— Stofflet

Stofflet also suggests heading to the spa, paddling down a river, hiking, and more to get refreshed after each festival. Luckily, you can check all of those boxes while you are in Crested Butte!

Just in case you find some downtime during the Fest, we wanted to show you some options for enjoying our special shire!

Crested Butte IS known as the birthplace of #mountainbiking after all.😉🚵
