What better way to enjoy peak leaf season than with a glass of the finest wine? The Breckenridge Wine Classic is scheduled for the weekend of September 13th-16th, right as the aspen leaves will be in their full golden glory. The event includes dinner pairings, outdoor events, and educational seminars. It culminates with the grand tasting on Saturday evening.

The Grand Tasting

The grand tasting is scheduled for Saturday from 3:00-6:00 at the Riverwalk Center in downtown Breckenridge. This is a ticketed event with a VIP option. It will feature samples of fine foods from local restaurants and wines.

Friday Night Dinners

Friday night several restaurants throughout Breckenridge will be offering multiple course dinners and wine pairings carefully selected by sommeliers. These restaurants include Beaver Run Resort, Sauce on the Maggie, Carboy Winery, and Legends Steak and Italian.
If you would prefer to sample from multiple restaurants rather than sit down for a meal, check out the walk about tasting on Main Street. This event includes multiple sites throughout downtown Breckenridge.

Guided Hike

On Saturday morning you can enjoy a two mile hike on the Burro Trail starting out from Peak 9. The hike concludes with a special wine paired lunch. The lunch will feature single vineyard Pinot Noirs selected by Alex Wright, of Hahn Family Winery. Savor fresh air and stunning views, then relax with excellent food and learn about the Pinot Noir family.

There are more dinners and seminars throughout the weekend, ranging from women in wine to a fat biking event. More detailed information and tickets can be found at the website for the Breckenridge Wine Classic.

All events associated with the Breckenridge Wine Classic are 21 and over. You will be asked to present an ID when you get your tickets. This includes infants and children. Strollers or backpacks will not be admitted into any events. There are several excellent babysitting services available including At Your Breck and Call and Resort Sitters. You can enjoy an adult day or evening out without the kids.

Beneficiaries

A percentage of the proceeds from some of the events and the proceeds from a silent auction will go to the National Reparatory Orchestra. This orchestra provides unique opportunities for kids to gain experience to learn their instruments and perform. Many students from the NRO go on to play in professional orchestras and symphonies.

Schedule a Spa Day

After relaxing with fine wine and superior dining, complete your luxury experience with a spa day. Schedule a body treatment, facial, or massage at the Spa in Breckenridge. When you are done, you can take in the leaves and endless blue sky from one of our warm soaking pools.

Take the weekend to get away and enjoy some of the best that Breckenridge has to offer.
