Let’s get ready to PARTY!

KUVO’s 16th Annual Signature Event | Saturday, August 14, 2021
VIP – Enter at 5:30 PM | General – Enter at 6:30 PM

“Live at the Vineyards” is a wine tasting with a gourmet feast, live music, dancing, and a silent auction.

THE MUSIC
THE KUVO JAZZ & BLUES ALL-STARS
Featuring the H2 Big Band with special guests Erica Brown, Hugh Ragin, and Rich Chiaraluce

THE GOURMET FEAST
Your ticket gives you access to 15 local restaurants offering chef-inspired dishes and delicacies, a varied selection of artisan cheeses, and flavorful plates. You can enjoy the tasting as many times as you like and there’s an opportunity to vote for your favorites – the People’s Choice competition will add to the evening’s enjoyment.

THE WINE TASTING
The wine tasting is sponsored by Balistreri Vineyards. John Balistreri’s family immigrated from Sicily to the United States in the early 1900s. Balistreri Vineyards keeps to its traditional roots of wines made naturally, as they forgo the use of sulfites or other chemicals. Bottled one barrel at a time. Guests receive tickets for the wine tasting and can purchase by the glass or by bottle to take to the table.

LOCATION
Balistreri Vineyards, 1946 E 66th Ave, Denver, CO 80246
The vineyard is conveniently located just 10 minutes from downtown Denver.

The event is rain or shine. All ticket sales are final. The exception for a refund is in the event of covid complications.

FAQs

What should I wear?
The attire is garden-party casual. This can mean that the gentlemen wear shorts with a polo shirt (it is summer, after all!). Ladies can wear heels, but we recommend staying away from pointy heels because of the grassy areas (block heels work best).

What’s the timeline?
Be on time! When you first arrive, you’ll be enjoying a wine tasting and a gourmet feast from over 15 restaurants until 7:45 pm. The music and the dancing start right around the time the food sponsors close. The auction closes at 8:30 pm sharp. The night will conclude by 10:30 pm.

Can I buy tickets at the vineyard?
Please check kuvo.org to be sure that we are not sold out. If tickets are not sold out, you can purchase them at the vineyard. Please be on-site early.

I’m sitting at a sponsor table; can I purchase additional tickets?
Yes, please email member@kuvo.org or call (303) 480-9272 to purchase additional tickets or click here. Your guest(s) can join you at your table.

How much will general admissions tickets cost after July 31?
On the morning of August 1, the general admission tickets will go up to $100 – get your tickets before July 31.

Where do I park?
There’s plenty of parking in two lots close to Balistreri. Traffic assistance is provided for your convenience. VIP ticket holders and Table Sponsors have backstage parking.
