The 33rd Annual Telluride Wine Festival


The 33rd Annual Telluride Wine Festival, June 26-29, was a smashing success throughout Telluride and Mountain Village.

Telluride Wine Festival is a four-day celebration of wine and food located in the lovely San Juan Mountains.

“This year’s festival [had] programs for both the novice and the connoisseur,” Festival Director Laurel Robinson said, “and [we improved] on our classic Tasting Events, adding many fun and fascinating seminars and activities.”

With over twenty-five different events, there was something for everyone. For festival information or to purchase tickets for next year, visit www.TellurideWineFestival.com.

Now, Telluride Wine Festival is proud to announce a partnership with the 12th annual Telluride Musicfest.

The first of their four concerts began last Wednesday, June 25, and last Sunday, June 29, at the Mai home near the old Sky Line Ranch property.

The Mai’s luxurious barn-like living room, bathed in the dusk light bouncing off Mount Wilson and Sunshine, is the perfect place to experience the glories of the chamber music repertoire.

Audience members were served a lovely glass of complementary wine courtesy of Telluride Wine Festival at intermission of the performance.

During the upcoming music events, guests can also look forward to wines served by Barry Marshall of Marshall Family Wines and by Sandy Taylor of Taylor Family Vineyards.

Known as two of the most scenic and intimate festivals in the country, Telluride Wine Festival and Telluride Musicfest both share the magic of rich life experience and artful engagement, and its promoters believe that it’s more than appropriate that these two sustaining festivals in our glorious Telluride box canyon come together on the same night to combine the best of wine and music.

Telluride Musicfest has for 12 years invited the best of New York chamber music artists for two weeks of music making presented in the way chamber music was written to be heard – in a grand living room.

This year’s festival is called “From Russia with Love, Part II” and features the great masterpieces of that repertoire.

The 2104 guest artists include Toby Appel on violin and viola, Edward Arron on cello, Joana Genova on violin, Hsih-Yun Huang on viola Kathryn Lockwood on viola.

The following concerts are scheduled July 2 and July 7 at the Mai home and promise an equally elegant experience. All concerts begin at 7:30 p.m.

To locate the Mai home, leave Telluride and turn left at Society Turn. Go about four miles and pass Mt. Village, Ski Ranches, Elk Run, Raspberry Patch and The Preserve. Just past the small lake on the left, turn left at the old Sky Line ranch Property. You will soon see 3 roads converging. Park here, and a shuttle will take you up to the Mai house, which is up the middle road through the metal cattle gate.

Telluride Winefest and Musicfest invite you to participate both of their traditions by hearing great music and toasting with great wine.
