The Boulder Burgundy Festival brought wine aficionados from near and far together to sample, taste, judge and enjoy the wines of the Burgundy region. Calluna Events was thrilled to be invited to plan three of the festival’s key events; all filled wall to wall with guests brimming with passion about wines.
The creator and host of the Burgundy Festival is Master Sommelier and Boulder Wine Merchant owner Brett Zimmerman. “During this three-day extravaganza we will be able to drink some of the rarest wines of Burgundy due largely in part to the amazing generosity of our supplier partners.”
The three-day celebration of Burgundy wines includes tastings and seminars with winemakers and top U.S. wine directors, as well as wine luncheons and dinners hosted by Boulder’s best restaurants such as Frasca and The Flagstaff House.
Once again Calluna Events was the official organizer and event planner for the Burgundy Seminar with Guillaume d’Angerville of Domaine Marquis d’Angerville, one of Burgundy’s finest estates, the Grand Tasting in the Hotel Boulderado’s fabulous ballroom as well as a Chablis Brunch at the casual, yet elegant The Kitchen Upstairs. The Grand Tasting was a phenomenal experience that brought merchants, importers, sommeliers, trades people, and a host of wine enthusiasts together to taste over 170 different pours. We couldn’t have been more excited to host this event for the Boulder Wine Merchant Boulder Burgundy Festival.
A morning event took place at The Kitchen Upstairs. There we hosted a Sunday morning Chablis Brunch that included 25 different flights of wine paired with an exquisite brunch tasting menu. Although it was less formal than the Grand Tasting, the Chablis Brunch showcased an equally impressive selection of pours.
