Colorado Wine Country
Great wine requires growing and harvesting the best grapes. The best grapes are grown in arid climates with cool nights, warm, sunny days, the right soil and just the right amount of stress. Colorado's western slope and the Grand Junction area are proving to grow high quality grapes and develop great tasting wines. Visitors to Colorado Wine Country are surprised and impressed by the quality of wine produced in the region. The area wineries have beautiful vineyards, inviting tasting rooms and many have very good restaurants featuring local food and of course, local wines.
