Happy Holidays
by Carrie Dow on Nov 14, 2017 in Wine

With the holidays just around the corner, it will soon be time for office parties, family gatherings and gift giving with friends. Along with these events sometimes comes a little anxiety. What wine to bring? The Colorado Wine Board is here to help and provide a local touch in your holiday wine selection. All of these wines are 2017 winners in the Colorado Governor’s Cup and pair well with a variety of seasonal foods and events. They can be found at stores all over the state or you can purchase them online directly from vintners. Then all you have to do is open the bottle and enjoy.
