Wine in the Pines
Location: Keystone
October 20, 2017 - October 21, 2017

Wine in the Pines | International Wine & Gourmet Food Tasting

Wine in the Pines, which benefits the Kelly Smith Employment Center at Ability Connection Colorado, was founded 34 years ago by Mike and Margaret Smith, owners of Dillon Ridge Liquors in Summit County. Their vision was to create an event to help people like their daughter Kelly, who has Cerebral Palsy. As Mike Smith is fond of saying, Wine in the Pines is a way to “pay it forward” and give back to others in a meaningful way that helps people like his daughter, Kelly, receive the critical resources and support needed to fully develop their potential and live life to its fullest.
