Forge Evolution, formerly Colorado Springs Teen Court, is pleased to bring you the 14th edition of our Annual Jewel of a Wine Tasting! Our wine tasting is a great way to show your support for our local Colorado Springs community! Whether you attend in-person or opt to show your support from afar with a virtual ticket, all proceeds will help provide services for teens and their families in the greater Colorado Springs area! The in-person portion will host a variety of local wine vendors offering an abundance of libations as well as heavy hor d'ouevres to snack on! Attendees are provided with a booklet detailing the various wines; if you taste something you like, you can order it at a discounted price! The event runs from 6:30 - 9:00 and will feature a champagne toast and prize drawing (see below). Tickets for the in-person portion of the event may be limited, so be sure to purchase your ticket soon to guarantee your spot! Commemorative glasses of champagne will be available for purchase at $25 each.
We will be giving away some extraordinary pieces of jewelry donated by All That Glitters Fine Jewelry Gallery. When you purchase a glass, you will be entered into the drawing for the jewelry. In addition to the jewelry, other prizes include: a lavish bottle of a featured alcohol or a stay at a luxurious resort.
As we did in 2020, Forge Evolution is offering a virtual alternative so that you can experience our Wine Tasting from the comfort of your own home. A virtual ticket includes: Two EXCLUSIVE bottles of wine, which will not be available at the in-person portion of the event; a perfectly coupled chocolate and wine pairing guaranteed to bring out the best flavors of both the wines and chocolate; a booklet with the complete offering of wines, from which wines may be ordered at a discounted, event rate; a link to the livestream portionsof the event; and specialized videos from our wine vendors detailing their favorite selections. Commemorative champagne glasses, along with a personal bottle of bubbly, may be added to your order to partake in the champagne toast and be entered into the drawing to win an exquisite piece of jewelry (courtesy of our jewelry sponsor) or another extravagant prize.
