Colorado Technology Association to host 10th Annual Wine Tasting

Guests will vote on an “ultimate” winery-eatery pairing at sold-out event


Denver, CO  (August 1, 2014)—The Colorado Technology Association (CTA) will host its 10th Annual Wine Tasting event on Thursday, August 7th from 5:30-8:30pm in the gardens of the Governor’s Residence. The 400+ soiree attendees will enjoy wine varietals and small bites from local Colorado wineries and standout restaurants, all while mingling with some of the best technology industry leaders in Colorado during the sold-out event.

New this year, CTA has matched wineries and eateries with event sponsors to collaborate and create the “ultimate pairing.” Guests will judge and vote on their top-three favorite pairings, and a winner will be announced at the end of the evening.

The Wine Tasting event is an excellent opportunity for professionals in the technology sector to network.

CTA's Wine Tasting offers a platform for the broad technology community to congregate, share ideas and gain new insights. Networking is a catalyst for success,” said CTA CEO Erik Mitisek. “The Wine Tasting is a key event within our programming to cultivate emerging relationships and leverage your network."

The featured wineries for the event include Blue Skies Winery, Bookcliff Vineyards, Redstone Meadery, Bad Bitch Cellars, Water2Wine and Point Blank Cellars.

The eateries highlighted in the festivities are Vesper Lounge, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, Randolph’s Restaurant and Bar, Wystone’s World Teas, Comfortable Food Truck and Governor’s Residence Catering.

The title sponsors include Box, Business Birmingham, Cooley LLP, MicroStrategy, ReadyTalk and Zunesis.

In addition to the tasting, CTA will be collecting school supplies to benefit OpenWorld Learning (OWL). OWL teaches computer programming, LEGO Robotics and leadership skills to low-income 3rd-8th grade students. OWL trains students to become leaders in the classroom and provides technological training that most of these students would not receive otherwise. OWL appreciates donations of general school supplies (pencils, glue, wide-ruled paper, etc.), backpacks, used laptops and tablets, flash drives and Target gift cards.
