    Overview 

    Overview

    Boulder Wine Merchant is proud to announce the  Annual Boulder Burgundy Festival, to be held October 20-23, 2015.

     

    The gathering is one of the leading Burgundy events in the U.S. today and it attracts top Burgundy producers and leading wine professionals from across the country.

     

    “As a retailer of fine wines,” says Master Sommelier and Boulder Wine Merchant owner Brett Zimmerman, “it is impossible not to love the spectacular wines of Burgundy. The greatest tragedy of loving these wines is not tasting the great ones often enough. Selfishly, we thought hosting a Burgundy Festival would be the perfect opportunity to celebrate the wines of the region by tasting and sharing them with some of our friends, customers, restaurateurs, suppliers, and producers. During this three-day extravaganza we will be able to drink some of the rarest wines of Burgundy due largely in part to the amazing generosity of our supplier partners.”

     

    The four-day celebration of Burgundy wines includes tastings and seminars with winemakers and top U.S. wine directors, as well as wine dinners hosted by Boulder’s best restaurants.
