The annual Taste of Vail culinary festival concluded Sunday, wrapping up five days of food and wine seminars, specialty dinners and signature events. Attendees at Wednesday’s Debut of 2015 Rose sampled more than 100 rose varietals, embracing an immense diversity of styles and flavors. Nearly two-dozen restaurants participated in Thursday’s American Lamb Cook-Off and Apres Ski Tasting, with The Fitz Bar & Restaurant taking home top honors and Revolution named People’s Choice.

Vineyard owners and winemakers from all over the world poured their best at the Mountain Top Tasting on Friday, alongside picnic-inspired small plates from area restaurants. And the crowning event of the festival, The Grand Tasting & Auction on Saturday evening, filled the banquet halls and ballrooms of the Four Seasons Vail with decadent flavors and the clinking of wine glasses.
