The Telluride Wine Festival has been restructured with a change of the Constitution (Statutes) in order to represent a wider variety of events, and including the participation of local artisans and traders with Made In Colorado products, and the best wines from North America, Uruguay, Argentina, Western Europe and Asia, New Zealand and Australia wines.


The 2018 Festival has been overbooked at the point that we refused more than 1200 entries. More than 7,000 visitors attended the SWF 2018 including wine lovers, winemakers, sommeliers Charlie Arturaola and SWF Christopher Sawyer sommelier (wines events director).

Why is the Wine Festival becoming more popular? Festival director Laurel Robinson says, “We are now confirming after five years what kind of people come to the Festival to attend the many conferences, tastings, including 'Lincet' cheese from Champagne and Burgundy, and we know what they really like. So we can prepare the 2019 edition with positive enthousiam and excellent results."

Like the popular Brunch on Main Street Main Street that once again hosted guests with tables, tents so that volunteers, renowned chefs and sommeliers can work in an idyllic convivial ambience setting with confidence.


Each year, some of the most wanted events are Winegrower's Lunches. Thursday afternoon lunch, hosted by Sheridan Chop House, Bright Dining Room, Historic with windows guarded by Chef James Beaux (top chef-owner of 5 East Coast restaurants), he gave 6 classes, each of them paired with  Lincet cheese & wine (classic varietals grapes from each of 6 distinctive wine cellars).

This year we hosted a new film "The Duel Of Wine" a 60-minute film (Italian-Argentina) with filmmaker Nicolas Carreras from Buenos Aires with actor Charlie Arturaola, world-renowned sommelier his wife Pandora Anwyl, (@PandoraWines). Charlie is also a wine educator, a judge at the Mondial de Bruxelles (United Nations Fine Wines Competition) Brussels. He is also a distinguished member of the American Sommelier Association. This film was broadcast and also thrown on the big screen in the TWF 2018.  

Fifty wine cellars of international renown provided the main tastings of wines from different grapes-varieties ( from different countries and continents) of the whole world including old Asia, New Zealand grapes. Those have a well known international reputation.

The pairing French Burgundy cheese Lincet with a designated origin of dairy breeds milk from wines and champagne produced in winegrowing only from traditional vine varieties and different wines of the world to the Festival.

Like other annual events, Telluride volunteers have contributed to this year's huge success. The Telluride Wine Festival thanks them for their generosity and very professional work.

This year we got some useful feedback that will help to improve the next 2019 edition. One participant commented that he had attended the last 8 Festivals and Telluride Wine Festival and "2018 was the best".
