Summer 2023 Events


June 25th at 7PM



This 5 Course Food and Wine Paring Demonstration will feature the wines of Buckel Family, based in Gunnison, CO. Buckel Family Wine, is an award-winning, family-owned and operated winery nestled on the Western Slope in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. While wine may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Colorado, we dare you to think — and drink — differently. The Buckel family took root here by virtue of an adventurous dream (and a touch of foolishness), and are proud to cultivate Colorado’s growing wine culture. Food will be prepared by Chef and Somm Dustin Clements, and paired by Somm Oulli Durham. The menu will feature Colorado meats and produce, sourced from local farms. ($250 pp)
