East Meets West
Metro Area Wineries
Some people still have trouble believing there are more than 100 wineries in Colorado. We’re going to prove it to you. Participating wineries along the Front Range will be inviting a winery friend from the Western Slope to hold an open house. Sip on wines made near Denver from Palisade grapes alongside wines made in the vineyards of Palisade and the surrounding Ag communities.
