Cries of “Amarone” Heard All Over Castle Rock Wine Fest!

Visit Us on the Web – Click Here Summertime marks the middle of the wine season in the world of wine.  In vineyards all over the northern hemisphere, the grapes should be growing.  Harvest and crush time doesn’t come until fall, so what better to do with your time then attend a wine festival?! The ninth annual Castle Rock Wine Festival was held on Saturday, June 21.  It was a blistering hot day in The Grange, but as in years past Water 2 Wine-DTC came out in force.  With a tent at the very front of the park, just inside the entrance to the festival, the signature cries of “Amarone” (Water 2 Wine-DTC's Signature Wine) could be heard from Water 2 Wine-DTC’s tent all the way into the parking lot!  It was a spectacular day for the winery and its 11 staffers that worked the festival.  After the festivities closed-up at 6:00 p.m., the owners and staff reported that this was their most successful Front Range wine festival in three years!  “The only better festival to date was the 2011 Palisade Wine Fest,” said Dede Schuringa, Water 2 Wine-DTC’s Sales & Event Coordinator and Tasting Room Manager.  Michael Anderson, Water 2 Wine-DTC’s Award Winning Wine Maker and Cellar Master said he was thrilled with the turn out and with the wines he selected for the event.  “We sold almost everything we brought to the event, which was a whooping 50 cases of wine,” said Michael, “it’s a good thing we started planning for this one a year ago!” In addition to having one of the most fun locations at the Wine Festival, Owner Marcus Tipton also spent some time with festival goers doing a tasting demonstration.  This was a great opportunity for wine lovers to learn from the professionals and help hone their palates for future wine tastings. The fun and energetic Water 2 Wine-DTC crew will be at the Solterra Wine Fest on August 4, the Evergreen Wine Fest on August 18, and then it is off to Palisade in mid-September.  In the meantime, you can purchase any of your favorite wines at the winery on Arapahoe Road, just east of I-25.  Don’t wait for the next festivals, stop in and see them at the winery today!  Click Here to see the photos from the festival.
