Continue the Important Work of Wine in the Pines by helping “Fund the Fundraiser” & keep its incredible accomplishments a reality for those in-need!
The Covid pandemic continues to impact our world! For the second year in a row, and, for only the second time in its 38-year history, Wine in the Pines has had to be modified. Out of an abundance of caution and with an eye toward the health and safety of our guests, Ability Connection Colorado (ACCO) has decided not to hold the popular in-person annual event.
Until now, the event has been a reliable source of revenue for ACCO’s life-changing and critical programs such as Employment Works, Creative Options for Early Childhood Education, and Four Statewide Family Support Programs. To offset the loss of these funds, ACCO is asking supporters of the event to help “fund the fundraiser” and “pay it forward” by making a monetary donation or by participating in the Wine in the Pines Online Auction.
The funds raised through this year’s Wine in the Pines will continue to help support community members with special needs and other life challenges in hopes they may have a quality life of dignity and inclusion within their community.
We will miss seeing you in person but ask for your help to continue the important work made possible by Wine in the Pines!

The Story of Wine in the Pines
WINE IN THE PINES. Just four little words. But, for those who have attended this annual wine event in Keystone, Colorado, those four little words invoke so much more. For those living in and around Summit County and for the many front-range attendees that make the annual October trek to Keystone, Wine in the Pines has become an epicurean tradition and one of the premiere wine and food events in all of Colorado. For nearly four decades, Wine in the Pines has been serving up culinary delicacies from some of Keystone’s finest chefs along with hundreds of fine wines and spirits to pair them with. Just as rave-worthy, attendees of the lavish event are also treated to a bevy of chocolate indulgence and creative confections that spans several tables long.
In addition to the fine wines and fabulous food, Wine in the Pines has also become known for its no-holes-barred live and silent auctions where past treasures have included exotic trips, extravagant gift packages, one-of-a-kind works of art, fat tire bikes, vehicles, sports memorabilia and, of course, exclusive wines which have gone for as much as $5,000 for a single bottle.
