Comments Off on celebrate friends and fans – 2011

Fridays are for celebrating Stance Friends and Fans. I encourage you to visit their facebook page, website or place of business and tell Stance about your experience with them.

Today we celebrate all things Colorado wine including Winefest Denver, the annual fundraiser for the trade organization of grape growers and winemakers of Colorado: the Colorado Association for Viticulture and Enology (CAVE), a non-profit organization.
This first annual event, featuring close to 50 Colorado wineries, will establish a Wine Festival that is unique to Denver while generating awareness of Colorado wineries and the non-profit organization dedicated to their support. Guests may choose from a variety of event options while also having the opportunity to sample and purchase bottles of wine from a wide variety of Colorado wineries. All funds will go towards education, seminars, research and equipment purchases to improve the grape growing and winemaking of Colorado wines.

DATE: June 9-11, 2011
LOCATION: Shops at Northfield, a pedestrian-friendly open air shopping district located in north Stapleton only minutes from downtown Denver.
