2016 Telluride Wine Festival

June 23rd- June 26th, 2016.

It’s a bit early to have information about the 2016 Telluride Wine Festival, but it’s not too early to book lodging. Many veteran festivarians book their condos and hotel rooms a year in advance and the town of Telluride is mostly sold out six months before the festival! Come back later for more information on this festival.


The 2015 Telluride Wine Festival was held June 25-28, 2015.  This year should be the best ever.  In addition to four days of wine, the festival features numerous cooking classes throughout the weekend. Beginning in April, there will be several ticket options for the 2016 Wine Festival
