38th Annual Wine in the Pines


Great friends, fabulous food and fine wine!

Ability Connection Colorado will celebrate the 37th Annual Wine in the Pines on Friday & Saturday, October 23 & 24, 2020 in Keystone, Colorado.

On Friday… The Winemaker’s Dinner at the Keystone Ranch will begin with champagne and hors d’oeuvres. Attendees will enjoy a 5-course seated dinner expertly prepared by genius head chef, Kevin Simley, paired with exquisite wines from TBD. It will be an epicurean delight not to be missed!

On Saturday… The International Wine & Gourmet Food Tasting features the epicurean creations of some of Keystone’s finest chefs. Gourmet selections will pair with the perfect taste of nearly 500 international wines, spirits or craft beers. And, of course, no culinary experience would be complete without a trip or two to the dessert tables where attendees will indulge in the legendary chocolates and dessert delicacies that Wine in the Pines is known for. Rounding out the night will be live and silent auctions, live entertainment and this year… TBD THEME!

This preeminent event was founded by Mike and Margaret Smith to honor their daughter, Kelly who was born with Cerebral Palsy. The nearly 800 guests who attend will join the Smiths and the Kelly Smith Statewide Employment Program in seeking to ensure that all people with disabilities statewide have a quality life of dignity and inclusion within their community.

The Kelly Smith Statewide Employment Program provides services to over 2,800 at-risk adults & teens STATEWIDE each year through ACCO’s Employment Works and RAMP programs.
