COLORADO CRAFT WINE
Colorado's abundant sunshine, warm days, cool nights, and low humidity provide the perfect conditions for wine grapes that feature the complex character and chemistry required to craft award-winning wines. The federal government has designated two regions in Colorado as American Viticultural Areas (AVA): The Grand Valley AVA, including Grand Junction and Palisade, and the West Elks AVA, surrounding Paonia and Hotchkiss. Our state's wineries are an important part of Colorado's agritourism, offering wine tastings, winery tours, vineyard tours, and wine festivals.
All our Colorado wines are processed in small batches. Each year, we receive tons of fresh grapes from Palisade, Colorado! Our yearly bounty has included Chardonnay, Albarino, Riesling, Viognier, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, Sangiovese and Carignan! We're slowly crafting the new wines into yummy goodness, infusing them with hearty laughter, lots of nurturing love, and plenty of jazz! Harvest is an exciting time at Vino Salida; please stop by to view the process and sample the vino!
