This is the 7 acre parcel which includes the winery located right off Highway 141. Our terroir here is good for both cold-hardy and European grapes. Here we grow:
Aromella: A cold hardy white grape that was bred by scientists at Cornell University. It produces an aromatic wine characterized by notes of pineapple, honeysuckle, with a floral character. Amazingly versatile, Aromella is a favorite to add aroma and floral character to a variety of wines.
Muscat Blanc: A traditional Vitis Vinifera grape originally hailing from Greece. Similar to Aromella, this grape is known for it’s fruity and floral character. Known for tight clusters absolutely bursting with berries.
St Vincent: A cold hardy red grape. Sometimes compared to Chianti with cherry flavors and a complex after taste. Often used in red blends. Originally discovered in Missouri, this grape has gained traction as both a traditional red and a stunning Rosè.
Cabernet Franc: Great red Bordeaux variety. Grows well and produces good wine here in Colorado. This ancient grape is the father of Cabernet Sauvignon. The winemaker’s favorite, Cabernet Franc has a reputation in Colorado for achieving perfect ripeness that leads to complex and rustic notes.
Merlot: Premium Bordeaux variety. Grows well and produces wine with smooth tannins. Capable of many expressions depending upon how it is vinified, though this block tends to have dominant notes of cherry and a warm finish. The Merlot block sits right outside of the tasting room windows.
Syrah: The oldest vines on the property, these grapes have gone on to make a multitude of award winning wines. An amazing dark-skinned grape that makes gorgeous wines bursting with notes of jam and black pepper.
