Steve Flynn- Winemaker/President
As the winemaker and president of Vino Salida Wine Cellars, Steve knows that crafting tasty Colorado-grown wines are a direct result of combining two important elements: building relationships with grape growers and focusing on adventurous creativity in the wine cellar. Growing up in northern New York, Steve experienced first-hand the rewards of working hard in his academic/artistic studies and restaurant employment. The diversity of math, science, painting, photography and cooking fascinated him and would later influence his approach to winemaking. First hired by Mountain Spirit Winery in Salida for his expertise in fine food production and retail art sales, he learned diligently the science of winemaking and eventually started Vino Salida Wine Cellars in 2009, fulfilling his dream of creating a community-supported winery. As a winemaker and business owner, Steve is highly regarded for his ability to build community, to craft elegant wines, and to envision a future of sustainability for Colorado vineyards and wineries.
Jessica Shook- Sales & Marketing Director
My love for the natural beauty of home inspires me to drink more wine! And snowboard, raft, hike, camp, roller skate, soak in one of several nearby hot springs, and enjoy the best libations in the state. Our local beer, wine and spirit producers are all friends and supporters of generally having a grand ol' time in life and that's what I do in Salida and at the winery. Vino Salida is a perfect way for me to stay connected to an inspired, creative and fun community, celebrating all the way!
