Meet your guide at one of two pickup locations in downtown Denver for a late-morning start, and climb into a luxury Mercedes SUV or minivan for the ride to your first stop, Balistreri Winery.

Visit the wine cellar for an up-close look at the production process, and taste a generous flight of up to 20 red and white wines, from pinot gris and zinfandel to sweet resiling and muscat.

When it’s time for more wine, visit one or two other Denver-based wineries such as Mile High Winery, Infinite Monkey Theorem, or Kingman Estates before being dropped off back at the starting point.
