Welcome Front & Center Marketing, the festival’s newest sponsor!


Above: Avi Scheinbaum is the founder and CEO of Front & Center Marketing, the festival’s newest sponsor.

Front & Center is a Boulder-based marketing firm that specializes in natural foods.

Its services include: In-store demos, field marketing, consumer outreach, trade shows, new product launches, go-to market strategy, consulting, and events.

Entrepreneur magazine called it one of “top 30 startups to watch” in 2015.

“Front & Center Marketing,” wrote the editors, “offers a flexible work environment for those people that are passionate about starting a career in nutrition, personal training or fitness, among other related industries. Most of the team works part time, with many being single moms. This sort of schedule helps build financial security while allowing the flexibility needed for child care. Because of this environment, Front & Center Marketing has tripled in size from 2012 to 2013.”

The organizers of the Boulder Burgundy Festival are thrilled to have Avi and her team on board for 2017.

Welcome, Avi! We are looking forward to tasting with you!

1999 Clos de Tart is just one of the extraordinary wines to be poured Saturday night…


The festival organizers are thrilled to be working this year with Vineyard Brands, one of the leading importers of top Burgundy wines in the U.S. today. Founded in the 1970s, this family-owned company, with its tightly focused portfolio of fine wines from the Old and New Worlds, has built a reputation as the purveyor of some of Burgundy’s most exclusive domaines. Nearly 30 percent of its wines come from Burgundy, including the legendary Clos de Tart (above), one of only six grand cru monopolies in Burgundy.

Danny Haas, the son of Vineyard Brands’ founder Robert Haas, will join New York Times wine writer and celebrity sommelier Raj Parr for the event at Frasca Food and Wine where the staff will be pouring an extraordinary flight of wines from Vineyard Brands’ “book,” as they say in the trade:

Delamotte NV Champagne Brut Blanc de Blanc
Louis Michel Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir (magnum) 2014
Francois Carillon Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Perrières2015
Domaine de Courcel Pommard 1er Cru Grand Clos des Epenots 2007
Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains1999
Grand Cru Clos de Tart Monopole 1999

We are extremely thankful to Vineyard Brands and the Haas family for making this possibile!

The organizers of the Boulder Burgundy Festival would like to take time out to thank one our partners, Audi Boulder, one of the event’s official sponsors.

It’s a case of “one local business supporting another,” said the showroom’s Audi brand ambassador, Craig David, “and keeping in step with the uniqueness of what Boulder has to offer.”

Audi Boulder will be providing some of the VIP vehicles for the event and it’s offering tickets and reservations to festival gatherings to its clients.

The partnership is just one of Audi Boulder’s many relationships with local businesses and charity.

Craig asked us to give a shout out to the the Rocky Mountain Cancer Center Masters Cycling Team, which raises money and awareness for the Rocky Mountain Cancer Center.

From the Rocky Mountain Cancer Center website:

Since 1992, Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers (RMCC) has been a leader in cancer care. We began as a small group practice of six physicians with a new approach to treating cancer—administering chemotherapy on an outpatient basis—and have since developed into Colorado’s largest and most comprehensive provider of cancer care with 58 physicians treating patients in 20 community-based locations across the state.
