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 130-150 attendees (we had 140 at last year's event) and it's difficult to check folks in and handle money. Please see the Denver Wine Meetup for the refund policy.
