Exceptional lodging, special pricing elevates April 3-6 festival experience
Vail, Colo. – March 20, 2019 – Colorado’s always highly anticipated food and wine festival Taste of Vail, April 3-6, 2019, showcasing more than 30 premier Vail Valley chefs and restaurateurs alongside winemakers from nearly 50 of the country’s top wineries, just announced its 2019 seminar lineup, which includes six distinctive wine workshop-tastings along with a new coffee and tea cupping tour. Offering a convenient home base for the foodie action – plus a fully appointed kitchen should culinary inspiration strike – attendees needn’t stay anywhere other than centrally located Antlers at Vail hotel on the banks of Gore Creek, just steps from restaurants, galleries, shops, the free town shuttle and Vail’s Eagle Bahn Gondola. And special Taste of Vail pricing offers 20 percent off on a four-night stay.
Over the past decade, Vail has stepped up to the plate as a covetable foodie destination and vacation spot for year-round travel outside of ski season, with a long history of buzz-worthy restaurants being joined by a regular and ever-growing roster of events from community farm-to-table dinners and the internationally acclaimed Betty Ford Alpine Gardens’ Chefs in the Gardens summer series to Vail Valley Food Tours and the weekly Sunday destination farmers market. But the start of the culinary calendar each year is undeniably Taste of Vail in the spring.
Along with such signature events as the Mountain Top Tasting and the American Lamb Cook-Off & Après-ski Tasting, festival attendees will have the chance to sample over 100 different rosé wines from the just released 2018 vintage, attend multiple-course Champagne brunches and partake in intriguing seminars where one can dive deeper into subjects like viticulture, Greek wine and coffee roasting.
Antlers at Vail offers roomy condominiums ranging from studio suites to four-bedroom penthouses, perfect for taking a break from Taste of Vail activities. Or take advantage of the full kitchen, dining area and private balcony with gas grill offered in every guest suite to invite friends back to discuss the day’s samplings – or put together an impromptu pairing menu.
Antlers at Vail hotel is also known for its extensive and unusual list of complimentary amenities that includes on-site yoga classes, a weekly guest wine and cheese reception, and a lending library of kitchen small appliances and gadgets to name a few. And guests can kick back in the Antlers’ year-round heated outdoor pool and hot tubs with spectacular mountain views. Looking to get a workout in before gorging on Taste of Vail’s decadent lineup?
