Grand Valley AVA, West Elks AVA

Riesling vines are tolerant of cold weather and thus are well-suited to Colorado’s cool mountain climate. Thriving on plenty of high-altitude sunlight our Riesling grapes are grown in small vineyards in Delta and Mesa counties and are hand-harvested at their optimum ripeness.

This vibrant wine shines with a light-gold color. Abundant scents of apricot, peach, apple, citrus and orange blossom epitomize the distinctive character of our German-style Riesling. Floral aromas are brightened by a lingering, sweet-tart finish of apple, pear and citrus. An excellent structure and balance make this wine ideal to pair with food. It is also a lovely sipping wine all by itself.
