The FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen celebrates 33 years of fine wine, cuisine, Grand Tastings, seminars, socializing and more this weekend. Starting Thurs., June 19, The Nell will be teeming with formal and informal gatherings (from the restaurants to the living room to the stairwells), eccentric events (think pop-up concession carts and Champagne toasts), winemaker dinners (the Greatest Wines of the World and the Kings of Northern Rhone), conversations with industry leaders (Master Sommelier Jay Fletcher, the venerable Raj Parr), and on and on.
All who are here this weekend – from visitors to locals – are invited to partake in the festivities with us by dining at element 47 (for reservations, call 970.920.6330, or drop by to ask for a seat in the bar) or Ajax Tavern (970.920.6334 is the hostess stand to request seating on the patio or inside).
Be sure to request a flute or a bottle of our just-released Robert Moncuit Champagne, just off the plane from France and created especially for element 47 at The Little Nell.
For those in the know, we’re hosting exclusive industry events requiring a private invitation and a desire to celebrate with five-star style.
In the meantime, we recommend downloading the new and free FOOD & WINE Classic app and start plotting your every move.
