A wise person once observed, “It pays to plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.”
With that in mind, there are two big wine events coming up in 2012 that require some advance planning.
One of the most anticipated events each year is the Aspen Food & Wine Classic. In 2012, it will be held June 15-17.
Numerous similar events have sprung up in the three decades since the Classic made its debut, but none has ever been able to top Aspen in one regard: scenery. The Colorado ski resort provides an awe-inspiring backdrop for savoring great food and wine. If you’ve never been… you gotta go.
