Copper Crush Wine Fest

Start Date:
August 17, 2018
End Date:
August 19, 2018

This is Not Your Mother's Wine Fest - Do you think Wine Festivals have to be all about white gloves and linen table clothes? Are you tired of having words like "tannins" and "oak-aged" go right over your head? Are you just wanting to have a crazy good time while drinking wine you enjoy without breaking your bank? The Copper Crush is a weekend full of fun activities like Candy Bar and Wine Pairing, Boxed Wine Sampling, Grand Tasting, Sangria Sampling, Wine 101 Education, great music, entertainment and activities found all in one place - Copper Mountain Resort.  With the support of Colorado Association for Viticulture & Enology (CAVE) and the Colorado Wine Industry Development Board we've created an event that's fun for wine novices to wine snobs looking to let their hair down and have a great time!
