We regret to announce that all events for Colorado Natural Wine Week 2020 have been postponed. Though we are hopeful that the worst of the Covid19 crisis will be well behind us by late April, the unfortunate fact is that planning and organizing the event in such an uncertain climate will be impossible. Of course, if the worst has not passed by that time, holding the event would be irresponsible.
The members of the Colorado Natural Wine Consortium will be meeting soon to discuss rescheduling Colorado Natural Wine Week to the Fall of 2020. Please stay tuned!
If you have already purchased tickets to the April Grand Tasting, you can expect a full refund this week.
Your fellow natural wine lovers at the Colorado Natural Wine Consortium. March 12, 2020.
Wine, in its purest and most essential form, is little more than fermented grape juice. In the Twentieth Century, however, advancements in technology, chemistry, and agriculture have led to a world where most wines today resemble manufactured goods more than agricultural products. Most “modern” wines have been stripped of their individuality, terroir, and personality by additives, technological processes, and other manipulations in both vineyard and winery.
The natural wine movement seeks to reverse that anonymizing, homogenizing trend on a vine by vine, wine by wine basis. And the Colorado Natural Wine Consortium brings those wines to the Colorado market, through tastings, winemaker dinners, seminars, and other events, with Natural Wine Week as our showcase.
Together we bring you our showcase series of events: Colorado Natural Wine Week, held in the third week of April. Natural Wine Week is a celebration of organic, biodynamic, sustainable, and otherwise natural wine. Across Denver and Boulder, winemakers, producers, importers, local wine wholesalers, restaurants, and retailers will be celebrating with a variety of tastings, dinners and events.
