Taste of Vail

Event Details

During the annual event, upwards of 5,000 people can “Taste the Vail Valley lifestyle,” which showcases Vail’s world-famous resort village set against dramatic mountain vistas. Participants at the Taste of Vail experience the Vail Valley’s world-class restaurants, fine wine poured by winemakers and winery owners from top wineries around the globe, along with interactive seminars, an auction and dance, the Colorado Lamb Cook Off, and more.

Taste of Vail showcases more than 30 of Vail’s finest chefs and restaurateurs alongside the owners and winemakers from nearly 50 of the countries’ top wineries.

Taste of Vail is an idea, a platform for promoting the Vail lifestyle via the community’s ever-evolving food and beverage assets. This is done through the organization’s iconic food and wine event in the spring, along with additional activities throughout the year designed to support and elevate the community.
