Croquet & Wine Festival Kick-Off
Add to your calendar
Date: July 28, 2:00 pm
Location: Center for the Arts Crested Butte
Details: This event is part of the Crested Butte Wine & Food Festival taking place July 28-31.

Join us for a great day on The Center's front lawn to kick off the festival! Play some croquet (dashing croquet attire welcome but not required). Nosh on Cornbread Waffle Bites* from Hogwood BBQ. Discover your palate and participate in a fun wine tasting with Sommelier Kathryn LaTour. And learn how to etch in glass with The Art Studio.

Hogwood Chef/Owner Michael Marsee is bringing his Myron Mixon Smoker to serve up a traditional BBQ meal. A graduate of the New England Culinary Institute, Michael has previously worked as a private chef for a high-society family in Dubai and as a chef on a private ranch in Colorado. After traveling the world tasting and picking up techniques along the way, he returned to Crested Butte, eager to develop a love for barbecue, smoking meat with peach and cherry wood creating a distinct flavor to Colorado. His barbecue sauce is a unique combination of pepper, sweet, and vinegar that only compliments the meat not to masque the wonderful aroma and flavor of the smoke.

Kathryn LaTour, PhD and Associate Professor of Services Marketing at Cornell University's School of Hotel Administration will lead a cool, interactive wine tasting experience that is part tasting and part self-discovery. A certified sommelier, Kathryn is also consumer psychologist whose research (and first-hand experiences) has led to some insights about how to learn about wine.

*Cornbread Waffle Bites :  Smoked Pork or Brisket, served open-faced, with pickled jalapeños, chive, and Hogwood Sauce.
