The 7th Annual Steamboat Wine Festival had another successful year, drawing a around 3,000 people to different parts of the festivals and events. ‘The three-day event features daily seminars on everything from whiskey to wine glass shapes, and nightly gatherings offer tastings from international wineries and some local restaurants.’ The events occurred all around Steamboat, the venues ranging from downtown to the Torian Plum Plaza in the mountain area. The festival began with a kickoff celebration Thursday evening, and continued with public tasting events Friday and Saturday afternoons, and seminars throughout the weekend. In addition to being a fun-event marked on calendars around the country the ‘festival has raised about $150,000 for nonprofit groups such as Steamboat Adaptive Recreational Sports and the Steamboat Springs Arts Council in its seven-year history.’ The Steamboat Wine Festival is a great event in town for locals and visitors to both enjoy and we are already looking forward to next year!
