Wine Time

Wine Time is coming to the Drake Centre in Fort Collins on February 16, 2019. Here's everything you need to know about NoCo's premier wine tasting event.

But, first, if you don't already have your tickets reserved, stop what you're doing, and get that taken care of right this minute.

Okay, now that you have that taken care of, here are all of the details:

DATE: Saturday, February 16, 2019
LOCATION: Drake Centre - 802 W. Drake Road, Fort Collins, CO 80526
VIP: 5pm – 9pm
General Admission: 6pm – 9pm
EVENT PARKING: Parking is free


  • Everyone with a ticket will proceed to the same line. This includes those who need a Designated Driver ticket.
  • There will be a coat check.
  • There will be a line upon entering but it’ll move quickly once doors open. Security will be checking IDs at this time.
  • Staff scanning tickets can help those looking to purchase a Designated Driver ticket.
  • Tickets can be scanned on your phone if you did not print them
  • You’ll receive your souvenir sample glass courtesy of Rocky Mountain Physical Therapy upon entering.

Take advantage of the early access! It’s the best part about VIP. Beat the crowd and get in an hour before the general public, plus access to exclusive champagnes! The VIP champagnes will be spread out throughout the event during the first hour, but then will be moved to the Champagne Courtyard before the general admission enters. Once in the Champagne Courtyard, only those with the VIP wristband will get to sample those champagnes (while supplies last)

Our friends at Metro Urban Food & Booze will be proving passed appetizers during VIP.
