If you have ever traveled domestically or Internationally on a wine tasting vacation – or wanted to – then, don’t miss this event being put on by our good friends at Hazels Beverage World and Quintessential Wines.
As a family-owned business, Quintessential’s mission is solely focused on importing wines made by multi-generational, family owned & operated wineries. In support of this mission, they have invited representatives of their greatest wine-making families on a 5-city tour of America. The final stop is here in Boulder on Friday, April 22nd.
There will be 20 wineries with over 60 wines you can taste at the event – Spain, France, Australia, South Africa, Chile, Argentina, Portugal as well as Lodi California will all be represented. This is a rare opportunity to sample wines that wouldn’t regularly hit the shelves of a local liquor store due to the highly personalized attention to quality and low production yields compared to that of a global conglomerate. If you find a wine that you love at the event, you can order it there and pick it up at Hazels in a couple of weeks.
You’ll be able to meet the winemakers in person and share a mutual passion for wine while discussing the history, methodology and essence of the terroir and wines they produce. Here’s just a a few of the winemakers that will be attending
Who knows? Maybe you’ll be inspired to travel to one of these places and meet the winemaker – again! The cost of the event is $30 – call or stop by Hazels to pick up your tickets.
