Tasting group in denver/boulder

#1 Post by Shay h arnoy » January 16th, 2020, 7:11 am

Hi! I’m relatively new here and was hoping to find a tasting group in Denver/boulder for some offline events. I live in Boulder with the family.
I have been into mostly Bordeaux and burgundy wines trying to taste and learn!

Hey Shay

My wife and I would be interested in a tasting group. Since Colorado is a no corkage state it would probably be best to host. We’re in central Denver but are both Buffs so love Boulder! We have some Bordeaux and Burgundy and a decent amount of Rhône so could support tastings in those areas. We have primarily CA (Napa, Paso) and WA.

Could try to set something up in February and contact some of the others who have posted in the CO threads.

February sounds amazing! We may be able to host up in Boulder though we have two young kiddos running around so it would need to be after bed time :).

Our kids are all off to college, woohoo! So we’re up for hosting the first one. I can throw out a few dates and we can see what works. See who else is interested then pick a theme.

Sounds great! I saw the sticky at the top of the offline forum with a few names of folks in Denver area.

I would be interested, if the date works, and, the location is in Denver.

February has turned out to be pretty busy for us but we have Saturday the 29th open and could host. We live in Denver near DU.

If we're hosting I would prefer to do something US (CA or WA) or maybe Rhone CdP themed. I only have a few bottles of Bordeaux, nothing really age worthy. Similar with Burgundy and honestly Burgundy is not our favorite. Would gladly participate with these at another time. My cellar is mostly Napa/Sonoma, Paso and Walla Walla.

Not sure how this works. See who is interested and agree on a theme? Since it's being hosted do we do a shared dinner kind of thing? We love to cook so could definitely do a main dish if others would bring apps, salads, etc.

We've been wanting to do something like this for a while with people who enjoy wine. Should be fun!
