The Wine Festival of Colorado Springs is the city's premier and most comprehensive charity wine event.

It was born 32 years ago, making it the longest-running wine festival in Southern Colorado.  The first event was held in 1992 at the private Colorado Springs' School, and consisted of a modest "Grand Tasting" event with a small wine auction, which procured $16,000 in revenue, over 50% more than was anticipated by the initial planners! Festival coordinators recognized that the Wine Festival of Colorado Springs could be a substantial annual fundraiser for excellent causes throughout the city...

And so it began!
