Wine Festival of Colorado Springs

When: Feb. 17-March 12 2011

For local winos (oenophiles, I mean), hopes of weekend retreats to Napa Valley have recently been crushed like so many grapes, due to high airfares and soaring gas prices. (Thanks, Gadhafi.) At least the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center's 20th annual Wine Festival of Colorado Springs kicks off tonight at The Broadmoor (1 Lake Ave., csfineartscenter.org). Themed on the wines of Spain, the fest opens at 5:30 with "The Spanish Wine Experience," a discussion and tasting for $30. To sample 300 varieties, stay for the Grand Tasting & Wine Market Auction at 7. Prices for that run $65 for FAC members and $75 for non-members. — Matt Ruppert
