Handcrafted wines

 

All our Colorado wines are processed in small batches. We've already received tons of fresh grapes from Palisade, Colorado! This year's bounty has included Chardonnay, Albarino, Riesling, Viognier, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite 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!

Start your Chaffee County vacation or day trip with agritourism at our Salida winery! Our Colorado winery tours and wine tastings are casual, informative, and fun!

Colorado: A Beautiful State of 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.
