FELIPE MOSQUEDA | FOUNDER
Felipe Mosqueda, the founder of Mile High Wine Tours, has been a wine aficionado for many years.
He began to truly explore his fascination with wine by hosting regular Champagne and wine charity events as he traveled and lived around the world. As he returned to Denver, he continued his passion for wine, and for connecting people together and giving to worthy causes through his numerous charity events at some of Denver’s best wine venues. Quickly he became the “go to person” for the best wine spots in the Mile High City. In 2013 he began offering wine tasting and soon Mile High Wine Tours was created.
“I’ve always felt that the Mile High City had so much to offer in a very relaxed approachable manner for any level of wine preference or experience. Few locals know of the great wineries in downtown Denver alone…and I love sharing these new discoveries and bringing together people, wines and food that exemplify the progressive unique style of the mile high wine country.”.
