A Taste of Colorado – Colorado Wine Lounge

A Taste of Colorado Announces New Taste this Year with its Inaugural Colorado Wine Lounge

 Festivalgoers can sip local favorite wineries Carlson Vineyards, Colterris, Red Fox Cellars, and Talon Wine Brands Labor Day Weekend

For the first time, A Taste of Colorado will feature local Colorado wineries at its Colorado Wine Lounge, presented by Wine Country Inn and Palisade Chamber of Commerce. The wine tent at the 34th Annual A Taste of Colorado, produced by the Downtown Denver Partnership, will have a lounge area for festivalgoers to relax while enjoying local wine by the glass or tasting sizes.

Local favorites from the heart of Colorado’s wine country in the Palisade region – Colterris, Carlson Vineyards, Talon Wine Brands, and Red Fox Cellars – will be featured together at the Colorado Wine Lounge in Downtown Civic Center Park this Labor Day weekend, Sept. 1-4.

Carlson Vineyards is a family-owned winery focused on producing premium wines using sun-ripened local grapes and fruit grown on the high elevation slopes of the Rocky Mountains, to create easy drinking, regionally distinctive wines.

Colterris Wines produces only wines from Colorado-grown grapes and ingeniously aged in French and American oak barrels.

Red Fox Cellars is known for its ability to move freely between tradition and invention, earning the prestigious title of Winery of the Year. They will highlight their adventurous and exceptionally blended wine selections.

Talon Wine Brands will share their passion for wine with sweeter-edged yet highly flavorful beverages.

These featured wineries create an event that will satisfy a wide variety of wine lover palates, and is a complement to the expanded craft beer section that debuted last year.

The 34th Annual A Taste of Colorado – The Region’s Largest Musical Festival – takes place Sept. 1-4 in Downtown Denver’s Civic Center Park with hours 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, and 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday.
