The 26th annual Colorado Mountain Winefest sold out for the third year in a row.

Over 6,500 vendors, attendees and volunteers filled the park.

“Just in the park celebrating Colorado wine on a beautiful day with thousands of close friends,” Cassidee Shull, executive director Cave and Colorado Mountain WineFest, said.

It’s been a tradition that has helped local wineries grow in their market. This year, 55 Colorado wineries poured endless samples.

Diana Read, CEO Cottonwood Cellars, said her wineries have been coming to the Colorado Mountain Wine Fest for decades.

“It’s grown,” Read said. “It’s definitely grown it started out 4,000 something like that.”

Over 30 artisan and food vendors, ice carving, seminars and grape stomping kept attendees busy when they weren’t tasting endless wine.

“This is the only wine fest I’ve ever been to, but I am a Colorado girl,” Bethany Franek, an attendee said. “It’s all Colorado wine, mostly Colorado grapes, so who couldn’t love it?”
