Stroll Breckenridge

Walk-about tasting along Main Street

More Info: Age 21+ | Indoor/Outdoor | Walk-Around Tasting | Wine, Beer, Spirits only

Stroll down Breckenridge’s delightfully preserved old mining town main street to savor a wide collection of wine, beer and spirits. The Stroll Stop venues include art galleries, tasting rooms, and other historic spaces. At each stop, a subset of wine, beer and spirit representatives will sample their favorites, as well as provide as much detail as you want to learn! The focus of this tasting is the libations, and we end the event right in time to make your dinner reservation at one of Breck’s excellent restaurants. As you stroll through town, note the restored structures and take in the beautiful art at the galleries! This is much more than your usual art walk with as many as 10-15 wines, beers, or spirits to sample at each stop.

Blended Smith & Hook Component

Tasting and Blending Seminar with Hahn Family Wines

More Info: Age 21+ | Indoor | Education | Wine

Engage with the varietals that constitute the Smith & Hook Proprietary Red Blend and leave with a blend of your own making! Led by Alex Wright of Hahn Family Wines, you will explore the Classic Varietals of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Syrah and Malbec and dive deep into each varietal on their own before trying your hand at the blending process. In addition to the wines, we will examine the Central Coast terroir that make each varietal so unique and analyze the interplay between varietals in the blend. Like the colors on a painter’s palette or the ingredients in a Chef’s recipe, the winemaker knows that each varietal adds a distinct component to a blend and uses that knowledge to create their art. Join us on a journey of discovery; one that may lead you to understand the art of blending is one where the whole is always greater than the sum of its parts.

Please allow 60-75 minutes for the seminar. Address: Breckenridge Grand Vacations Community Center and South Branch Library, 103 S. Harris St., Breckenridge, CO.
