The month of June has simply flown by this year. Nonetheless, I wanted to write a short blog about the Manitou Wine Festival that occurred on June 3rd. What a great time and a testament to the growing diversity of culture among our community!

Each year, 30 or so Colorado wineries open their signature bottles of wine to our community for some wonderful wine tasting. And of course, the legal age to try these unique wines is 21 years. Even though this event was about wine tasting and marketing specific products, my expectations about the festival were overly exceeded by the excitement in the air.

Other than wine tasting, there are plenty of other things to do as you let your hair down from the stresses of life, such as listening to live music, walking around and looking at all the other gift and food vendors, grabbing a bite to eat for yourself or simply soaking in the culture around you.  I found myself spending a few extra dollars on plenty of spices and cooking oils.

I do not have enough positive superlatives to attach to my wine tasting experience, except to say that I would recommend that you follow the Colorado Springs Event Calendar and keep your eyes open for next year’s Manitou Wine Festival.  See you there in the early part of June.
