Tasting Room

The tasting room has been designed to make your wine experience truly memorable. Visit in the spring and summer and enjoy the beautiful outdoor garden setting while viewing thriving vineyards growing against the majestic backdrop of the Rocky Mountains. In the winter, warm your hands by the toasty fireplace while sipping a rich full-bodied Merlot.

Award-Winning Wines…
At Your Fingertips

The tasting room is open daily, and our gracious staff will guide you through a flight tasting of multi-award winning wines.

We are currently operating under state-wide guidelines for restaurants due to COVID-19. Please see our Facebook page or contact the winery for full details as guidelines are changing constantly.

Tastings are currently seated outdoors on our partially-enclosed heated porch with the option to order from a food provider partner if available or to bring their own food. On May 1st 2022, the tastings will move to our terrace and lawn. The last seating for a 90 minute tasting is at 4:00 pm (3:00 pm on Sunday and during winter hours). We do offer 60 minute seated tastings at 4:30 and 5:00 (3:30 and 4:00 on Sunday and during winter hours) as well, however, no food option is available for the shortened tastings. Reservations are strongly recommended. Our base Wine Flight costs $10.oo (includes roughly 10-12 half-ounce wine samples) with options to upgrade (6 additional wine samples for $1 each).

Walk-ins are welcome! However, any guests that have not reserved a table will be able to enjoy a stand-up tasting at our outside bar (or inside bar, weather dependent) and are not guaranteed a seated tasting at one of our tables. Any guests who are offered a bar tasting can choose from our standard $10+ wine flight or a shortened $5+ wine flight. The $5 wine flight offers 5 half-ounce wine samples of your choice with options to add any additional wines for $1 each.

On-premise consumption by the glass and bottle is also being offered. Last call is 30 minutes before closing (5:30 Mon – Sat and 4:30 Sun).

Picnicking is allowed on our East lawn with bottle service only. Please bring your own blankets and chairs.

We are dog-friendly to well-behaved dogs. Please DO NOT leave your furry friend in your car while you sip.
