Colorados Ideal Red Wines


Colorado News

As our region cools down, winemakers count down their days until the last harvest. The Riesling vines are the perfect blend of sugar and acid and ready to create another award-winning wine. The beauty of Riesling is that it nurtures a different taste based on its location. Some have hints of lime while others resemble that of a tangerine.

The early snow this year saw many vineyards harvesting frozen grapes a lot sooner than expected in an attempt to salvage their crops. The below 20-degree temperature made the task quite difficult and transformed the fruit into a rather fragile state.

As vineyards celebrate their 2020 harvest, with many closing their tasting room doors until next year. Online support is crucial in maintaining sales and sharing the word about the different wines available in Colorado, and you can even buy wine using your mobile phone.
