Here's What You Need to Know About This Year's Breckenridge Wine Classic
Nothing says “fall” like the Breckenridge Wine Classic, even if wine isn’t your drink of choice. Every September, master sommeliers, chefs, and wine enthusiasts gather in Downtown Breckenridge to celebrate food and wine culture from around the globe, and this year’s event aims to be extra special.
Whether you’re a Wine Classic veteran or planning to attend for the very first time, here are a few things to know about the 2019 Breckenridge Wine Classic…
The Fall Foliage
Mid-to-late September is when the leaves finally begin to change colors, providing a breathtaking autumn setting for what many consider to be Breckenridge’s most-anticipated fall festival.
Stroll Breckenridge is one of our favorite festivities associated with the Wine Classic. Along with wine tastings at various stops around town, participants also get to experience the best of what downtown has to offer while also learning a little bit more about Breckenridge’s rich history. Stops along the way include art galleries, tasting rooms, and other historical sites that help make for a fun an educational experience.
Breck Uncorked - The Dinner Seminar Series
Several dinner seminars can also be part of your Wine Classic experience, providing participants with a great opportunity to sample Breckenridge’s hot spots for food and wine. This year’s seminars include dinner at Hearthestone with wine pairing from Alexander Vallery Vineyards; dinner at Aurum with wine pairing from Master Sommeliers Sean Razee and Damon Ornowski; and dinner at Carboy Winery with wine pairings from Carboy wines.
There’s Even Outdoor Activities
Saturday September 14th is the Hike & Lunch event with Winesellers Ltd. It’s here you’ll be able to hit the trails of Breckenridge for a 2-mile long guided tour of the Breckenridge backcountry, which includes a delicious wine-paired lunch at Beaver Run at the base of the mountain. Participants should plan to be gone for approximately 3 hours.
