Turquoise Mesa at Seven ArrowsSummary: Turquoise Mesa Winery tastings are now available in the Seven Arrows Gallery located in Woodland Park south of Denver. The art shop in Woodland Park offers tastings of Turquoise Mesa wines in the center of the store. Browse the delightful selection of mostly local and renowned art while enjoying a wine tasting.

Ralph Holloway is the owner of Seven Arrows Gallery and the Chairman of the Woodland Park Art Alliance. He moved from Texas to Woodland Park, Colorado and opened the art shop. Ralph wanted to promote a wine tasting experience while shopping. The Gallery features various types of original artwork including: oils, acrylics, photography, sculpture, pottery, glass and copper art. At the time of our visit the Gallery had a display of petroglyphs that had been etched onto stone. Ralph became intrigued with the idea of adding a wine tasting counter to the art gallery. Just any winery would not due; Ralph wanted a winery that produced quality wines and Turquoise Mesa was chosen.
