One day in the summer, winemakers from around Colorado load up some bottles, leave their vineyards, and converge upon The Shops at Northfield Stapleton. The reason for this great migration? The Mile High Wine Festival, an annual celebration of bold reds, delicate whites, and the delicious gourmet foods that bring out their complexities. During this event, visitors will have plenty of opportunities to test out these pairings for themselves, sampling sips and bites while being serenaded by the sounds of live bands.

The wineries: The crop of vendors in 2016 includes more than a dozen area wineries.
The restaurants: Guests can pair their wines with samples from a select group of Denver restaurants, such as Zen Asian Sushi Bar & Grill, Marco's Pizza, and Jim 'N Nick's Bar-B-Q.
The entertainment: An all-day event needs all-day entertainment. The fest's live-music schedule includes McCloskey and Miller from 2-3:30 p.m., Clifton and Braithwaite from 4-5:30 p.m., and The John Weeks Band from 6-8 p.m.
