Drinking wine used to be for the very classy, very rich and very sophisticated. Not anymore. In these present times, wine drinking is considered to be an almost every day pleasure - though it still takes a special event or occasion to open up a really good bottle of wine to celebrate. Whatever the reason that you come up with, there is always a good reason to visit a winery - be it with your loved one or your group of drinking friends. Having said that, this weekend will be just about the right time to rent a bus and make your way to a family owned and operated winery in Denver with a couple of your drinking friends - especially those who would really enjoy a good glass of wine.
Balistreri Vineyards may not be too well known, but this family owned and family operated winery has produced award winning wines that are made combining traditional winemaking methods and modern technology. Hidden on the outskirts of Denver, it would take an experienced bus rental driver to be able to seek out this wonderful family winery.
At Balistreri Vineyards, they offer complimentary wine tastings daily, and with tastings of most of their award winning wines that comes up to about over twenty different varieties, you will appreciate the fact that the servings are small. If you are interested, they even provide a tour of their wine cellar and winemaking facilities where you can perhaps pick up a tip or two about the wine making process. A good wine tasting session is usually accompanied by light finger foods or cheese and such, and when you are at Balistreri Vineyards, you can be rest assured they always have cheese and crackers ever ready to go with their wine tasting sessions.
After having tasted so many different types of wines, you can pick your favourite one and order them by the glass or by the bottle and enjoy it right there and order lunch too. Over lunch and some more wine drinking, you will be entertained by the many stories of the history of the winery and then you can also check out their membership club for wine lovers and their all year long activities for their members. Members are entitled to discounts and invitations to special events organised by the winery.
After a day or evening of sampling and drinking so much wine, it is good to know that you have your trusted rented bus driver waiting for you to send you and your drinking friends home. We all know that drinking and driving is a big no-no. So, drink as much as you want at the winery, but choose to be safe - rent a bus!
