Pre-Drink Local Wine Conference Winery Visits

We flew to Denver a couple of days ago to visit some of the wineries south of the city prior to the start of the Drink Local Wine Conference. Later today we will check into the Denver Sheraton and register for the DLW Conference. On Wednesday we visited Spero Winery and The Infinite Monkey Theorem Winery. Both wineries are located in Denver and make some nice wines. We then hit the road and traveled to Colorado Springs to spend the night at the Broadmoor, one of the world’s finest hotels. I wish we had more time to spend at the Broadmoor and explore the property. We had an excellent dinner that evening at the Summit Restaurant and met the most interesting and enthusiastic sommelier that we have ever met, Tim Baldwin.

We had a full schedule yesterday, visiting the Black Forest Meadery then onto Woodland Park to visit tasting rooms in galleries. We visited Cottonwood Cellars at Cowbells and sat on saddles. We really saddled up to the bar. At Seven Arrows Gallery we tasted Tourquoise Mesa wines. When we arrived at Seven Arrows there was a local reporter who wanted to write about our visit to Woodland Park. Then it was onto the Wines of Colorado, a combination tasting room, retail shop, restaurant and unbelievable site next to a creek. We spent the evening at the Cliff House in Manitou Springs.

On our way to Denver today, we’ll stop at Ruby Trust Cellars and Desert Moon. Our impressions of Colorado wines over the past days is positive. Winemakers are trying to improve their craft and vineyards are producing some nice quality grapes. We look forward to the Drink Local Wine Conference and more Colorado wines.
