Win an overnight stay & tickets to the Breckenridge Wine Extravaganza

Contest Now Closed – Thank You

A brand new wine event is happening in Breckenridge, Colorado over Memorial Day Weekend. The Breckenridge Wine Extravaganza is unique because it will feature all Colorado wineries, musicians and food. Take it from me, it’s difficult to find a Colorado-centric wine festival outside of the Western Slope area.

Breckenridge Wine Extravaganza

There are three days of festivities, all taking at Beaver Run Resort. I’m a big fan of this resort and love the chill ambiance. They have everything from hotel style rooms to four bedroom condo style suites available. There are two swimming pools; one with a poolside bar. The Colorado Suite that I stayed in this past winter was huge, with lots of character. Ours had an entire room dedicated to the gigantic jacuzzi tub. They have a wonderful shuttle service that takes you all over Breckenridge and will pick you up too, but should you decide to eat at the resort, there are three restaurant/bars to choose from.

Each room at the Beaver Run Resort has it’s own unique personality.

The wine festival will be held indoors. It features a Winemakers Dinner, a Chocolate & Cheese Pairing event and seminars. The main event, held on Saturday, will featured the band Dotsero and musicians Sarah Snead and Gary Meyers. A few of the Colorado wineries attending are Garfield Estates from Palisade, Ryker’s Cellars from Denver and Hellavua Wine, bottled in Loveland, Colorado. Their Purgatory Red was one of my favorites this past winter.

Now for the good news.

    Jack Rabbit Hill in Hotchkiss. Great wines coming out of here and a cool location too.

      We were just in Hotchkiss, but missed a lot of the wineries around there because we were a couple weeks ahead of the summer season openings. We HAVE to go back. I want to try Jack Rabbit Hill.

      We just had a Two Rivers Syrah last night for our anniversary! We’d been saving it. Two Rivers makes some great wines!

  2. Andrea Janke

    I don’t think I have had any Colorado wines 🙁 I love Chardonnay and chateau st jean. I would love to learn more about the local vineyards

  3. EJ

    I am 100% with Emily Vanek! Holy Cross and IMT! Balistreri has some great port, too.

  4. The Mayor

    I didn’t get to try Holy Cross on our quick trip to Canon City this past winter. I guess I’ll have to go back and try it!!!

  5. Sarah

    How exciting, it’s my birthday weekend too! One of my favorites is Infinite Monkey! They have little cans of carbonated wine that are easy to pack and take anywhere.

  6. Merri Taylor

    I had no idea that Colorado had so many wineries! I’m familiar with Garrett Estate Winery in Olathe because Mitch Garrett signed a bottle of Riesling when I met him at a local liquor store and I’ve had Aspen Peak Cellars in Bailey because I stayed at their B&B when it was still in operation. I do really like Two Rivers.

  7. Teresa

    I would LOVE to win this!! If I win I will take my daughters for a girls getaway!

  8. Amy G

    I like valley of the wind winery in Estes Park. They have a few very sweet wines.

  9. Kristina Roberts

    I am very new to Colorado and have only tried wines from Two Rivers so far. They were all very nice and I look forward to exploring other local wineries.

    I love The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey down in Canon City. It’s not just the wines themselves but what a great atmosphere and beautiful area. It”s a must-stop for anyone passing through on 50 (it’s just off the main road).

    our favorite vineyard and winery is owned by pat stryker of ft collins. it is not in colorado. but when we went to california we loved going there because of the colorado connection and because the place is gorgeous. it is set up on a hill with a fabulous view over other nearby vineyards. wonderful!

    I’ve only had Plum Creek wine, but I’d really love to try all of them. Red wines are my favorite. This is a great promotion to make people aware of Colorado wines!
