Tasty Bites from Taste of Vail 2019 & My Thoughts on Greek Wine (10)

Taste of Vail is a whirlwind of wine and food. I ate so much that on Saturday night, after the Grand Tasting, I dreamed about eating food. This year I decided to highlight the best bites of Taste of Vail according to me.

The 6th Annual Taste of Loveland

My husband and I attended this event last year and ate ourselves silly – it was so much fun! This event has not been well advertised.
