We expect over 130-150 attendees (we had 140 at last year’s event) and it’s difficult to check folks in and handle money. Please see the Denver Wine Meetup for the refund policy.

We are partnering with a Colorado organization called Sense of Security which provides a sense of security from financial hardship and enhance the quality of life for Colorado breast cancer patients in treatment. Sense of Security has served more than 1000 Colorado breast cancer patients while in treatment by providing over $1.6 million towards housing, utilities, groceries, transportation, COBRA or insurance premiums and other basic living expenses over the last 13 years. Sense of Security has served grantees from 48 Colorado counties statewide.

Please note: Our party area will be private (and blocked from the public) and we will turn away folks who do not have a ticket as we must provide the headcount to the chef and winemaker. This event will be limited to 150 attendees due to space
