Modern day Colorado winemaking began in 1974 when Colorado State University – with a grant from the US government – planted test plots of wine grapes throughout the ‘four corners’ area of the southwest. One of those test plots is located directly in front of our present day winery, and is the oldest commercial Colorado vineyard in existence today. The Colorado Limited Winery Act was enabled in 1977 creating Colorado Limited Winery Licenses, which required the use of Colorado grapes to make wine. Our winery was founded soon after (1978) and, although other entities had bonded as “wineries” prior to that date, our winery was the first to produce and sell Colorado wines made from Colorado grapes. Those wines were originally sold under the Colorado Mountain Vineyards brand with the Colorado Cellars brand appearing in 1988 and the Rocky Mountain Vineyards and Orchard Mesa Wine Company brands appearing in 1990. We assisted with the creation of the Grand Valley American Viticultural Area in 1991 Read more »

A common response to many of the wines I shared and wrote about back then went something like this; “What, they make wine there?” In fact, wine is produced in all 50 states, but many people can count on one hand the wines they have t...

  • People are not going to like what I have to say here, but that is okay, this is not a popularity contest. I do not write about wine to gather as many friends or followers as possible. I write about wine because I love wine and while I know my palate sometimes strays outside of the mainstream, so be it. I know many other people share my tastes or... Read More
