A focus on Colorado wines at the Breckenridge Wine and Spirits Festival Saturday

Daily News staff report

The Fourth Annual Breckenridge Wine and Spirits Festival is set for 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Main Street Station Plaza. Located at 505 South Main St. on the south side of Breckenridge, the event will benefit The Summit Foundation at the Great Rubber Duck Race as well as the 32nd Annual Breckenridge Festival of Film.

Cost is $20 per person, which includes 10 sampling tickets along with a commemorative wine glass and a rubber duck entry (if purchased before 3 p.m.). Guests will have wine and spirits to sample throughout the day while listening to live music next door in Main Street Station. Designated drivers and those under 21 will be admitted for free.

“The difference from past years is that we have added back into this event Colorado wines and spirits, and the response has been phenomenal,” said organizer Karin Bearnarth. “Colorado has so much to offer with its many distilleries and wineries throughout the state – including our very own Breckenridge Distillery. The bonus is that, with the Colorado wine products, guests will be able to actually purchase the sealed bottles they have enjoyed and take them home right from the event.”

Live music will be on the Main Street Station stage all day, including Dru Carter and Faith Crawford, Trading Fours Jazz Band and headliner Ginga.

From Boulder, Ginga will perform Brazilian music into the evening while also getting the crowd up and dancing with Samba lessons during their set. Ginga specializes in playing the sounds of Brazil such as samba, pagode, forro, MPB, bossa nova, chorinho and Brazilian jazz. A Ginga show can span the breadth of moods from sedate listening music to lively dancing and singing, the latter bringing to life the spirited sense of community that’s so often found in Brazilian music.
