Over 400 epicurean residents and visitors flocked to the Base Village in Snowmass for Aspen Magazine’s annual Food and Wine Opening Party sponsored by Wines of Greece. Guests were transported in Mercedes vans from the gondola in Aspen to Base Village where they were treated to one of the best views in Aspen/Snowmass. There they enjoyed music, food and drink and a special wine tasting made possible by Wines of Greece.
The theme this year was "Bringing it back to Snowmass" where Aspen magazine first started its opening event over five years ago. All of the local area restaurants participated providing delectable "bites" and parings. Wines of Greece poured their specialty wines to a discerning crowd of VIPs, Aspen locals, Chefs, visitors and Food & Wine notables. Aspen Brewing Company showcased their locally brewed favorites and Don Julio provided an air stream, equipped with a full bar, VIP lounge seating, and a photo booth.
