Colorado Winefest uncorked
Colorado citizens will get a chance to celebrate the first annual Colorado Winefest at The Shops at Northfield Stapleton in Denver June 9-11.
The festival falls at the end of Colorado Wine Week, which began on June 5. Festivalgoers will have the opportunity to sample wines from nearly 100 different wineries and local restaurants as well as attend wine seminars, dinners and chef demos.
