The Wine Tasting
John Balistreri and his daughter Julie started their family-owned and operated winery located in Denver back in 1998. Their award-winning wines are traditionally handcrafted, without the addition of sulfites or other chemicals. The vineyard is home to Live at the Vineyards, and this will be our 13th year hosting this incredible party at their beautiful location. With your ticket you’ll have a wine tasting experience that will help make this an evening to remember.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear?
The attire is casual dress. 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 gourmet feast from over 20 restaurants until 7:45pm. The music and the dancing start right around the time the food sponsors close. The auction closes at 8:30pm sharp. The night will conclude by 10:30pm.

Where is Balistreri Vineyards?
The vineyard is ten minutes north of downtown Denver, on 66th Ave. between Franklin and York streets. Take I-25 to the 58th Ave. exit, go north on Washington, turn onto 66th heading east, and you’ll arrive at the vineyard after you pass Franklin St.
