26th Annual Taos Winter Wine Festival


I am constantly asked the question, “How do I improve my wine knowledge?”  To which I always respond, “Keep drinking!”   There’s no better way to familiarize yourself with wines than a wine tasting.  It’s a great way to experience new vintages of your favorites, and to explore other varietals and regions around the world.

This week the Taos Winter Wine Festival will provide you such an opportunity. There are several seminars and dinners scheduled, along with two major tastings:

The Reserve Tasting will be held at the elegant El Monte Sagrado Resort, with a dozen of Taos’ best restaurants serving signature appetizers alongside tastes of reserve wine from owners and winemakers from 30 participating wineries.  This Opening Night Reserve Tasting also features a silent auction of wine to benefit the Taos High School Culinary Arts Program.

The Grand Tasting will be held right here in Taos Ski Valley, and will feature more than 155 different wines from 30 participating wineries — and tastes from a dozen of Taos and Taos Ski Valley’s finest restaurants, including The Blonde Bear Tavern.  A silent auction of rare wines benefits the Taos Community Foundation.

For more information and tickets, visit the Taos Winter Wine Festival website.  Please stop by our booth to say hello — and after the event, why not come to The Blonde Bear Tavern for dinner and a little more wine?
