The 7th Annual Denver International Wine Festival welcomes foodies, wineries, and winos alike

In its 7th year, the Denver International Wine Festival has expanded to the point of moving into The Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum.  If 44,000 square feet of room didn’t show what this impressive program has to offer, perhaps the list of events, wineries/distributors, and participating restaurants (Terroir, Panzano, Root Down, Oceanaire, Cholon, Row 14, Le Grand, and Second Home to name a few) will entice you.  Check out the press release below for details:

Wine Country Network, Inc, producer of the 7th annual Denver International
