The days and nights of this event are filled with food, wine, seminars, tastings, and auctions however there are four signature events that make up the Taste of Vail:
>> The Debut of Rosé
>> The American Lamb Cook-Off
>> The Mountain Top Tasting
>> The Grand Tasting
Debut of Rosé
The Debut of Rosé is the chance to experience just released 2018 Rosé for first time at the Debut event. Rosé wine is the liquid component of the much-celebrated lifestyle of Mediterranean France. It is just recently enjoying similar recognition in the US. Many people assume that Rosés are going to be sweet wines, most likely due to the fact that Rosé shares its same vibrant pink color with the now faded from popularity White Zinfandel. As a category, Rosé wines embrace an immense diversity of styles and flavors, especially if you include sparkling Rosés. From Semi sweet to off-dry to the bone- dry (very dry), they are startling refreshing and immensely seductive. "Gulpable" if you will. The event will be at the Arrabelle at Vail Square in Lionshead Grand Ballroom.
The event will have over 100 Rosé varietals to try.
Thursday, Enjoy one of Vail's favorite spring events. The Taste of Vail Lamb Cook-Off will join with the Apres Ski Tasting to create a true Apres Ski Party. Sample an array of lamb dishes, courtesy of the Vail Valley's finest chefs and the Colorado Lamb Board.
