There may be few places in Denver where you can spend an afternoon or an evening experimenting with tasting different high-quality wines, critiquing each as you go, and not break the bank. For some, such a night in which you can taste wine after wine as if money grows on trees might be a long-held fantasy. If so, your fantasy has come to life and can be played out at Denver’s Row 14 Bistro & Wine Bar.

With a “wine by the glass” list that includes an astounding 40 wines and a bottle list that includes an additional 50 wines, you won’t ever have to drink the same wine at Row 14, unless you want to, of course. As if this is not enough, Row 14 offers two wine flights that rotate on a weekly basis. This makes Row 14 the ideal wine bar for letting out your adventurous side, enabling you to experiment and discover new wines every night of the week, if you so choose.

On top of this extensive wine list, Row 14 makes their wines affordable in an effort to prove to their guests that good wines don’t have to be expensive or complicated. In order to achieve such quality for such a price, the owner and wine director David Schneider sources select wines from around the world, always keeping affordability and potential food and wine pairings in mind. It is through these extra efforts that Row 14 achieves its goal of making wine accessible, fun and affordable. Voted Top Wine List in Denver in 2011, it is safe to say that Row 14’s economical wine list does not cut any corners on taste.

Thus, for all of those wine lovers seeking an afternoon or evening of taste testing new wines, Row 14 is your sure destination. For those a little new to the world of wine, especially in terms of wine and food pairings, Row 14 always has a featured wine and food pairing that includes $5 happy hour wine. This is just another way Row 14 makes wine drinking simple and accessible. For Denver-ites and visitors to the Mile High City, there is no better place to unleash your inner wine critic than Denver, your pocket book will thank you for it!

Row 14 is located at 891 14th St. #100 Denver CO 80202; Tel: 303-825-0100. Email:

Now for the Denver foodie trivia question to see how educated of a foodie you are!

Why will you find dirt enclosed in plastic on Row 14’s walls?

Tune in this coming Tuesday for the answer!

The answer to this past Tuesday’s blog question: “What is another name for a root beer float that refers to a farm animal? Hint: This name allegedly was created in Cripple Creek, Colorado when the Cripple Creek Cow Mountain Gold Mining Company was booming.” Answer: “The all-American Root Beer Float is also known as ‘Black Cow.’ The name originated after the owner of the Cripple Creek Cow Mountain Gold Mining Company caught a glimpse of the snowcapped Cow Mountain under the moonlight and thought it resembled a scoop of vanilla ice cream floating on top of his blackened Cow Mountain.”
