Top 5 Things to Do at 2017 Breckenridge Wine Classic

Play, wine, and dine in beautiful Breckenridge, Colorado this fall! The Breckenridge Wine Classic, September 14-17, 2017, offers a variety of experiences on the mountain, in restaurants, classrooms, and around town. There is something for everyone – from food and wine tastings, to seminars and cooking demonstrations, to outdoor adventures with food and wine influences, there are tastes and temptations at every turn.

Here are the top five things to do at the 2017 event, courtesy of our friends at Breckenridge Wine Classic.


September in Breckenridge means the mountains are glowing with yellow aspen trees. Hit the golden trails and explore the breathtaking views of Breckenridge with our unique outdoor seminar options: Pinot Passport Hike, Beerunch Hike, and the Hair of the Dog Fat Bike Ride. We’ll take you on some of our favorite Breckenridge Trails and then kick up your boots for a wine lunch.


Join us for Stroll Breckenridge to explore all that Historic Main Street has to offer. From art galleries to historic landmarks each stroll stop presents a different selection of wines, beers, or spirits, allowing you to emerge yourself in Breckenridge’s art community. The Local's Lunch Wine & Cheese pairing features two Breck favorites from the area.


Engage with winemakers, vineyard owners, Master Sommeliers, and amazing chefs in their element for an experience that is so much more than a lecture. Learn from the best in the industry as they take you along to combine their passions of wine, food and the great outdoors at events like All That Sparkles, and If the wine matters so does the glass.


Foodies rejoice! The Classic has partnered with unrivaled Breckenridge restaurants serving up their specialties. Restaurants from Breck and across the state will be providing samples throughout the Grand Tasting. Check out some of our favorites for Mamma Mia Italian Immersion and the Emerging Stars luncheons.


This year’s Classic features hundreds of wines from around the world and the everyday to the esoteric. Find one you love and you can request it through our mobile app and pick it up at Basecamp Wine & Spirits! Make sure to get tickets early for Best of the Fest to sample the most high end wines of the weekend.

Raise your glasses and help uncork the can’t-miss wine festival of the season!
