Vail, Colorado – June 10, 2011–People have always flocked to the Vail  Valley in autumn to see the area’s renowned aspen trees turn golden  yellow, but this fall ‘foodies’ have even more reasons to visit Vail  with numerous culinary-themed offerings throughout the  season.

It may be called
Oktoberfest <http://email.22tech.com/t/r/i/jhjhilt/l/h/> ,  but the festivities for this popular annual festival are held in  September – 9-11 and 16-18, 2011, to be exact – with two full  weekends of German parties, bratwurst, beer gardens and traditional  dance demonstrations held throughout Vail Village and Lionshead. Vail Restaurant  Month <http://email.22tech.com/t/r/i/jhjhilt/l/k/> returns September 19 through October 16, 2011, featuring  harvest dinners at local eateries, wine and beer tastings, chef  demonstrations and activities for families.

Just minutes  from Vail,
Minturn  Cellars’ <http://email.22tech.com/t/r/i/jhjhilt/l/u/> tasting room is open every Saturday through the end of  October featuring local wines made from grapes from Grand Valley –  one of the state's two designated American Vinticultural Areas. The Marketplace on  Meadow Drive <http://email.22tech.com/t/r/i/jhjhilt/l/o/> includes a bistro, wine shop, deli, bakery, gelato  shop and creperie and offers regular tastings and events.
