The majestic valleys of the Colorado Rocky Mountains are blessed with warm days, cool nights and low humidity, perfect conditions for the cultivation of wine grapes with the complex character and chemistry required to produce award-winning wines.

Winemaking began on the Colorado Western Slope more than a century ago. With the advent of Prohibition, however, the early vineyards were uprooted and replaced with orchards. Modern vineyards featuring the world’s classic wine-grape varieties have been reestablished in the area’s fertile climes, and once again the art of winemaking is flourishing in Colorado. Building on the tradition of these pioneer winemakers, thriving wineries are now found in all parts of the state.

Today, the Colorado vintners enjoy a well-earned reputation for producing a wide variety of premium wines. From redolent Riesling and captivating Cabernet Franc, to wines made from cherries, peaches, plums and honey, Colorado wines consistently win top national and international awards for their quality.
