A Festival For A Cause

Colorado Mountain Winefest was established in 1992 as the largest fundraiser for the Colorado Association for Viticulture & Enology (CAVE). CAVE is a 510c6 non-profit that exists to encourage and support grape growing and winemaking across the state of Colorado. Mountain Winefest has grown into the largest festival in its kind, drawing attendees from across the world and gaining recognition as the Best Wine Festival in the Nation from USA Today. All proceeds from the festival go back into the wine industry during a 4-day Trade Conference organized by CAVE called VinCO. This conference brings top experts in winemaking, grape growing and marketing to the Colorado wine industry to share their knowledge and expertise.
