There is a place on eventbrite to RSVP for dinner afterwards. You may also order off of their wonderful menu. For members who want to continue to casually mingle, the fireside lounge will be open.
Please Note: NO TICKETS WILL BE SOLD AT THE DOOR/NO WALK UPS!….sorry but we will have to turn away anyone who doesn’t have an advance ticket as wine and food has been allotted based on the ticketed attendees and we do not handle money at the door. We are limiting this event to 100 attendees with a winemaker due to capcity of the room. Our events sell out quick! Please see the Denver Wine Meetup for the refund policy.
