Please Note: NO TICKETS WILL BE SOLD AT THE DOOR/NO WALK UPS!....sorry but we will have to turn away anyone who doesn't have an advance ticket as wine and food has been allotted based on the ticketed attendees and we do not handle money at the door. We expect over 100 attendees with a winemaker flying in and it's difficult to check folks in and handle money. Our events sell out quick! Please see the Denver Wine Meetup for the refund policy.
Parking: The restaurant has a complimentary valet and there is 2 hour parking until 7pm in nearby lots....you'll be parking around 6:30pm so shouldn't be bothered by the police
