About the Snowmass Wine Festival 

The Snowmass Wine Festival is the Rotary Club of Snowmass Village’s biggest fundraiser of the year. This weekend of wine is the perfect way to say goodbye to summer and hello to fall. Sip some of the best wines from around the world during this event! The tastings are split into two days. Friday kicks off the festival with an incredible wine dinner that changes its theme each year. On Saturday, your afternoon is filled with tasting after tasting followed by a silent auction. 

Wine Dinner | Friday

Every year, the Rotary Club of Snowmass Village picks a theme for the annual Wine Dinner. A four-course meal is paired with eight wines that are chosen based on the theme. Dinner is followed by a live auction. Local tip: This dinner sells out every year, so we recommend securing your tickets in advance.

Grand Tasting | Saturday

Taste some of the best wines in the world as you snack on local cuisine from our area’s restaurants at the Grand Tasting. Take a break from the array of wines to sit and relax as you listen to live music, then make sure you go to the silent auction. You’ll have the chance to bid on items from local shops, wines, artwork, and more. 

How Do I Get Tickets?

Tickets to each event are available for purchase online. You can purchase Friday and Saturday tickets separately or as a bundle. We recommend getting your tickets as soon as possible to make sure you secure your spot, but there are also a limited amount of tickets available for Saturday’s wine tasting at the door. Our concierge service can get you tickets, too!

Where Do the Proceeds Go?

The Snowmass Wine Festival is the Rotary Club of Snowmass Village’s only large fundraiser of the year, but it is very impressive. In 2018, the club raised more than $80,000 to donate to local and international non-profit organizations and to Basalt vocational programs and scholarships for graduating seniors.
