Balistreri 2007 Colorado Zinfandel

The easy to drink Zinfandel explodes with ripe juicy blackberry flavor. The red translucent color is a bit deceiving because this wine packs a punch that you may not notice. It has a delightful aroma of blackberries and spices. The velvet mouth feel gives way to a very fruity taste. The finish is crisp and […]

Wine and Food, the Perfect Tasting

Our last stop in Colorado was Creekside Cellars Winery & Italian Café in Evergreen. This charming town is about an hour’s drive from Denver International Airport, but seems a world apart. During our travels in 2008 we’ve come across more wineries with restaurants than we did in 2007. We think this is a good idea […]

Wines in Colorado? Of Course!

With 85 percent of the grapes grown in Colorado’s Western Slope, where are the urban wineries in the Front Range purchasing their grapes? For the majority of these urban wineries, the grapes are sourced from the Western Slope.  The Western Slope has the high altitudes and the right number of degree days to grow excellent […]

Wine Website Focuses on Drinking Local Wines

A new website http://www.drinklocalwine.com/ is set to debut next week. The emphasis on this site is to encourage consumers to drink their local wines. One statement we often hear at wineries is, “The community doesn’t know they have a winery in their own backyard.” Getting the community to accept and support a local winery is […]

Eat and Drink Regionally

October is a month of harvest and bounty. All kinds of fruit and vegetables are available locally at farms, farmer markets and some grocery stores. The 2007 vintage wines are available at local wineries. Why the push to buy locally? One reason is that locally grown foods taste better. They are harvested closer to the […]

Checking Out Colorado Wineries

We just arrived back from a whirlwind trip to numerous wineries in Colorado. What a great experience! After landing in Denver, we drove to the Manitou Springs Wine Festival where 22 wineries were pouring tastings. The ambience, wineries, food vendors and arts and crafts all added to the atmosphere. We also met Doug Caskey from […]
