The Aspen Times has written an in-depth profile of Billie and Bob Witham, owners and founders of Two Rivers Winery. The article also covers the Snowmass Wine Festival, happening this weekend. Under the headline, "Snowmass Wine Festival Draws Colorado Winemakers:
Grand Junction-Area Winery's Varietals Among Those Featured at Weekend Event," Reporter Stewart Oksenhorn writes:
"Two Rivers’ wines will be offered at this weekend’s Snowmass Wine Festival in Snowmass Village. The festival opens Friday with a dinner at the Artisan restaurant, featuring wines from the Australian maker Penfolds. The Grand Tasting is set for Saturday, Sept. 13, from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. on the Snowmass mall. Among the winemakers will be three from Colorado, all located in Mesa County: Plum Creek, Garfield Estates, and Two Rivers, whose full array of varietals — cabernet sauvignon, merlot, syrah, riesling and chardonnay, plus a port — will be featured. It is a rarity for the Colorado wineries to be included, as the Snowmass event typically coincides with the Colorado Mountain Winefest, in Palisade.
"In total, some 200 wines from around the world will be featured at the Grand Tasting in Snowmass. The event will also feature food items, a silent auction, and music by Bobby Mason & Friends. The event is a fundraiser for the Snowmass Village Rotary. The festival coincides with the 33rd Annual Snowmass Balloon Festival, which runs through Sunday, Sept. 14."
