Sylvia Chan loved painting when she was a child, but the only formal training she received was in high-school art classes and while studying fashion design. Her love for the art stayed with her later in life, though, and she eventually founded Picasso and Wine, creating a supportive, stress-free environment where guests could exercise their passion for painting while getting guidance from local artists. These highly social art parties remain open to any skill level, and the studio provides all the paints, canvases, and brushes. Each session presents attendees with an original work—such as a city skyline or a fall landscape—and tasks them with creating a faithful rendition of the piece while using sips of wine, beer, or gourmet tea to jump-start their creative impulses. The instructors offer helpful tips for capturing the light or painting anti-theft symbols into the background, and they allow partygoers to take their pieces home afterward.

Ten Bears Winery produces smooth, handcrafted wines through a fermentation process that involves french-oak aging and an exclusive winter-hibernation technique. To begin, the facility’s winemaker hand-selects the finest grapes available, and by the time those grapes reach the bottling line, they’ve been transformed into easy-to-drink, well-balanced Colorado wines, many of which populate the shelves at local retailers. For a more personalized wine-drinking experience, Ten Bears also offers private tastings and a custom labeling service that adorns bottles with company logos, pictures, and personal pager numbers.

At What We Love. The Winery, vintners with years of experience create not only delicious wines, but memorable tasting events that are classy yet unpretentious. Owned by husband and wife team Michael Hasler and Carolee Corey, who also owns a small in-home pre-school, their motto of "Love and Innovation" carries through to the wines and the tasting room that is often filled with fun and laughter. The couple met four years ago when Michael traveled from his native land of New Zealand and decided to make Colorado his home. Michael, the winemaker and enologist, is the primary creative behind the range of "Decadents" – award winning craft concentrates made to be diluted from a wine base with real fruit, fresh herbs and spices. At 20.5% ABV, these wines make 3 to 4 bottles when combined with water, seltzer, or champagne. Two of the selection can also be served as hot mulled wines, paired well with winter. Michael also makes a range of gold-medal winning varietal wines. The Winery is host to live music events, as well as parties, and has sponsored events - large and small - throughout Colorado.
