Colorado High Altitude Vineyard Scenes

The 2012 Drink Local Wine Conference takes place in Denver, Colorado. Many of Colorado’s vineyards are growing in altitudes between 4000′ and 7000′. These photos are from two previous visits to vineyards and wineries in the breath taking beautiful state of Colorado.

The Colorado Rivers runs past the vineyards at Canyon Wind Cellars in Georgetown, Colorado.

Jack Rabbit Hill in Hotchkiss, Colorado has some of the highest vineyards in the state. Occasionally they will lose some vines due to harsh weather conditions.

Plum Creek Winery in Palisade, Colorado has vineyards between 4700′ and 4900′. The Bookcliffs provide a dramatic background.

Garfield Estate Vineyard and Winery also in Palisade, Colorado can produce grapes that have achieved good brix levels and phenolics.

From the parking lot at the Wine Country Inn in Palisade, Colorado clouds skirt the Bookcliffs. Vineyards surround the Inn that in addition to providing lodging and offering space for private events also produces their own wine.

Kathy and I are looking forward to tasting many Colorado wines at the 2012 Drink Local Wine Conference in Denver.
