The Community Foundation is excited to announce a perfect pairing as the beneficiary of the 2020 Durango Wine Experience.
The 14th annual Durango Wine Experience kicks off Durango’s vibrant summer festival season on April 30 – May 2, 2020. The three-day event in historic downtown Durango includes:
- The signature Walk About, featuring wines, spirits, beers and light appetizers at select businesses in downtown Durango on Friday, May 1.
- On Saturday, May 2, the Grand Tasting takes place under the outdoor festival tent at the Smiley Building Courtyard. With more than a thousand attendees at the Grand Tasting, the Wine Experience features hundreds of wines, artisan distilleries, craft breweries, plus many of Durango’s most talented and celebrated chefs and restaurants.
- Educational and tasting seminars and dinners are available through a separate ticket to participants. The seminars are presented by sommeliers, certified wine educators, distillers, and mixologists throughout the three-day event.
“The Community Foundation is excited to partner with the Durango Wine Experience, an established and beloved Durango event, to build a strong philanthropic partnership that benefits our community,” says Briggen Wrinkle, Executive Director of the Community Foundation.
“For more than a decade, the Durango Wine Experience has supported local nonprofits, and we are pleased to provide this year’s proceeds to the Community Foundation,” stated Mitch Dye, Board President of the Durango Wine Experience. “Partnering with the Community Foundation will ensure that the strong and successful tradition of giving back to the community will continue.”
