The Boulder Burgundy Festival, 2019

Our scenic city is home to a stellar food and wine scene that attracts tourists and entertains locals year-round. While Colorado’s grape growers and winemakers are making a name for themselves throughout the country, we will always hold a bold, rich glass of Burgundy close to our hearts. Each year, the Boulder Burgundy Festival brings exquisite vintages from this appellation right to our front doors, saving us the trip to France. This much-anticipated event is just around the corner, and I’m proud to be a sponsor. Here’s everything you should know. 

What is the Boulder Burgundy Festival? 

The Boulder Burgundy Festival is a wine tasting event that spans four days, offering wine enthusiasts of all preferences the chance to taste rare, stunning glasses of wine. Each year, the event features a renowned wine maker and this year is no different. The Roulot family has been crafting beautiful wines since 1866 and Jean-Marc Roulot has not let the tradition slip. In fact, under his tenure, Domaine Roulot now sells out of Meursault before it makes it to the bottle.

The Boulder Burgundy Festival kicks off on 10/31 and continues through 11/3. Multiple events take place throughout the course of this four-day affair at various locations throughout Boulder. Below we share details about the special events that still have space available.
