Learn about wine at weekly ‘Forks and Corks’ event in Beaver Creek

Beaver Creek Lodge hosts “Forks and Corks,” a weekly wine event open to the public, from 3 to 5 p.m. every Friday in the Grand Bohemian Gallery.

A new year’s resolution for many in 2013 is to learn more about wine, and there’s no place better to do so than in the Grand Bohemian Gallery at Beaver Creek Lodge. During the event, attendees will learn about five hand-selected wines, while enjoying a full meat, cheese and bread antipasti bar for $12 per person. Afterwards, guests are invited to join executive Chef Justin Kalaluhi for dinner in the on-site restaurant, Rocks Modern Grill, to experience a full array of his culinary creations.

A special event will be held Saturday, where local artist Judith Hilmer will give an artist demonstration during the regularly scheduled “Forks and Corks” from 3 to 5 p.m. Hilmer’s work with botanically correct flora for the Natural History Museum dioramas has led her from Alaska to Africa. She has earned signature memberships in the Colorado Watercolor Society and the Kansas Watercolor Society while five of her serigraphs have taken awards in Tokyo, Japan.
