Join the CSU College of Business Beverage Business Institute for a live Zoom event to talk with Colorado winemakers, an industry supply chain expert and participate in a sensory experience (see ordering details). Colorado wine production, distribution, sales and wine tourism in 2019 supported a total economic impact of $162.3 million in business revenues,1,360 jobs and $59.5 million in labor income. We’ll discuss with the panelists what’s new in CO wine and what makes Colorado wine special followed by a guided tasting. Of course, we’ll leave time for Q&A as we want this to be an open discussion on how CO’s unique terroir has become a critical part of Colorado’s business landscape.
Plan ahead: Crisann will lead a tasting so get the wines, grab your best glasses and sip along!

Patric’s fermentation career began in brewing but transitioned to winemaking with time spent at some of CO’s most well-known wineries. As the winemaker at Sauvage Spectrum Estate Winery & Vineyard since 2018, the partnership was sparked out of some interesting Colorado grapes that resulted in a wine that was made in the Pétillant Naturel style.
