Grapes grow abundantly in Colorado, and the Western Slope and mountain region have developed a sweet reputation for nice wines.
The local and regional grapes are lovingly tended, and as you travel around our state, you’ll find vineyards and wineries with tasting rooms in Paonia, Palisade, Glenwood Springs, Grand Junction, Aspen and Durango. The Front Range has dozens, too – Greeley, Fort Collins, Severance, Boulder, Denver, Longmont, Berthoud, Lyons, Niwot, Estes Park, LaPorte, Nederland – yep, and more. Alamosa, Salida, Colorado Springs, Moffat, Cañon City, Divide, San Luis, Trinidad, Rocky Ford, Pueblo, Paonia, Hotchkiss, Crested Butte, Cortez.
If you can’t find a winery, seriously, there’s something wrong with your radar. (Insert smiley face here.)
