Update: We have a winner of our Colorado Urban Winefest contest giveaway.This morning, we asked Cafe Society readers to answer this question: What's the furthest distance, in exact miles, that a participating winery traveled to Denver to be a part of Colorado Wine Week? Congrats to Skinney85, who guessed 325 glasses; the actual number is 350. Skinney85, we'll send you an e-mail with directions on how to claim your prize.
Original post: It's been a whirlwind week of wine for the state's oenophiles partaking in Colorado Wine Week, which kicked off last Sunday and continues through tomorrow, when hundreds of grape gurus will gather at Infinity Park for Colorado Urban Winefest, the last event of the seven-day long homage to Colorado-produced juice.

Tomorrow's grape stomp starts at 1 p.m. and features cooking demonstrations and battles from Eric Miller, chef of Row 14, who's pitted against Alex White, chef of Jonesy's EatBar; a wine and cheese cooking demonstration and competition, in which wine is the main component, will showcase Daniel Asher, chef of Root Down and Jonas Halstead, from 1515 Restaurant.
In addition, molecular magician Ian Kleinman, who founded the Inventing Room, will uncork "foaming wine," an experiment that combines chocolate and wine. Live entertainment, wine samples (and the opportunity to purchase Colorado wines directly from the growers) and tasting demonstrations round out the experience.
Tickets to Colorado Urban Winefest are $40 each, but we're giving away two general admission passes to one Cafe Society reader and a guest, who can answer this question: What's the furthest distance, in exact miles, that a participating winery traveled to Denver to be a part of Colorado Wine Week?
The person who comes the closest to the exact number of miles without going over, will win the passes. Please provide your name, your best guess and a valid e-mail address (if you're already registered with VoicePlaces, we have that; if you're not, then you'll need to provide it so we can contact you if you win) in the comments section below. We'll announce the winner this evening by 6 p.m.
