Englewood wine-tasting will aid ACC students

One Barrel American Bistro and Wine Bar on Broadway is venue for fundraiser

Posted

Update: The event has been postponed due to changing guidance regarding COVID-19. The organizer has not yet set a new date. Lido Wine Merchants in Littleton will donate to the Arapahoe Community College Foundation 10% of all sales on wine involving customers who "say they are with ACC" from Nov. 12 to Nov. 20, according to the organizer.

The Arapahoe Community College Foundation will host a “Grapes to Grads” wine-tasting fundraiser, an opportunity for local residents to support Arapahoe Community College students, according to a news release.

At the event, participants can order holiday wine from the foundation's partners at Lido Wine Merchants, a Littleton business, and learn how best to pair wine with holiday meals, according to the release.

“ACC students still need us. More than ever, actually,” the release said. “They are facing unprecedented challenges yet are digging deep to move themselves and their families forward.”

The in-person, socially distanced event will take place at One Barrel American Bistro and Wine Bar on Nov. 14, with 45-minute tastings that can accommodate 30 people per hour. A cheese platter will be served.

Lunch reservations, not included in ticket price, will be available after the tastings. Tastings are set for the start of each hour from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

One Barrel American Bistro and Wine Bar is at 3401 S. Broadway in Englewood's downtown area, at the corner of Broadway and Englewood Parkway.

Register at tinyurl.com/GrapesToGradsRegister. Groups must purchase tickets together.

Masks must be worn until seated at designated tables, and attendees will remain seated for the duration of the event. Tastings will be brought to tables by staff.
