Regional Cuisine & Wines
An interview with Julie Balistreri of Balistreri Vineyards in Denver. This is a family owned vineyard & winery that produces some of the best award winning wines in the region and has just expanded. Julie tells us about their wines, the large event facility they've created and the new dishes they are serving in the tasting room, along with the vino. Well worth an afternoon visit with just a quick drive from the heart of the city.
*This is Moxie's favorite vineyard and winery in Denver!
