Stu Zooms into Vin Rouge in Denver

Stu Smith is Zooming into Denver to be the winemaker guest for a tasting at Vin Rouge Wine Bar & Tasting Room on February 2 at 7:00 p.m. (Mountain Standard Time!).

Please RSVP to insure your in-person spot!   The wines to be tasted are 2016 Riesling, 2016 Chardonnay and 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon.

If you’d prefer to swing by Vin Rouge, pick up the wines, and then taste along at home via Zoom, please head here to arrange that.

And if you’re not able to swing by and pick up the wines and just want to join in the fun (maybe you have enough of our wines in your cellar to draw from?!), please go here.

This link will also be archived and be available to view after the live event on February 2.

Vin Rouge can be found at 4412 Yates Street between 44th and Yates in Denver.

Jenn and Jarrett Feinstein opened Vin Rouge Wine Bar & Tasting Room in June 2020 during the height of Covid, in the Berkeley neighborhood of Denver. With 25 years in winery and hospitality management, Jenn describes Vin Rouge as “an approachably bougie wine bar where everyone wants to feel fancy without feeling out of place.” The cozy lounge environment expresses the warmth of its historical building setting with original hardwoods and exposed brick, with modern furniture and fixtures. It’s meant to feel luxurious but still approachable… like their wine selections. They choose boutique, natural wines and craft beers that you would not find on mass market wine lists or store shelves. Their goal is to help customers get to know their tastes and articulate their palates without anyone “winesplaining.”.
