Filed Under: Wine History | Wine Personalities | Wine Tours in Paonia and Grand Junction

This event sponsored by Delta County Libraries and the Creamery Arts Center kicked off the anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe's death, honoring him as the library's "Little Read" author.

We explored the wine culture of 19th century America and the influence of wine and other forms of alcohol in Poe's works. The event featured a wine tasting and talk by Executive Wine Sommelier and Senior Wine Instructor Tynan Szvetecz.
