  • About the event

    Now in its 13th year, the Denver International Wine Festival, hosted by Wine Country Network, Inc., attracts vintners from around the world, and showcases the largest selection of international and domestic wines at any Grand Tasting in the Rocky Mountain region. Its signature wine and food pairing event, Pairsine, features some of Colorado’s top chefs creating gourmet food pairings for gold-medal wines from the Denver International Wine Competition, and draws hundreds of attendees each year.

    In January 2017, the Denver International Wine Festival included in Food & Wine Magazine's “Best Wine Festivals Across America” list and was recently named one of the “Top 10 Can’t Miss Fall Wine Festivals” in the U.S. by Fodor’s.
