A New Opening a Bottle Experience is Coming Soon.

This fall, Opening a Bottle will relaunch as a fully-fledged wine magazine and wine education hub. Be among the first to know about these changes by signing up for our email newsletter below, or by following us on Facebook and Instagram.

Here’s how it will work: all wine education content will remain free, but wine reviews and opinion-based content and access to all virtual tastings will be available to paying subscribes. There will be two tiers of membership: Individual ($89/year) and Corporate/Multiple Log-ins ($169/year). Regardless of whether you become a paying subscriber or not, your opt-in will grant you monthly access to our latest article updates and news on upcoming virtual events.

Join the list today and stay in touch on our newest and most exciting developments!

Also, Colorado-based wine events/tastings
