Plan in advance. Everything about this is special. The ride in the snow cat to get there, the views, the food. All just another wonderful Telluride experience.

There is no question, food and wine here are expensive but then, you are at about 12,000 feet and the view is fantastic. Service has always been fine except they do say the oddest things sometimes. Last visit when I requested bourbon I was told...More

The restaurant has a great vibe, fabulous service- not only attentive but fun as well. The food is fabulous. We went twice and would have wanted to go a few more times to try a few other items in the menu that looked fantastic!

Just wine and beer as we were told. But my server said there was grappa and port. Both (I guess) technically wine.

I am pretty sure they do not since it is mid-mountain and only accessible to skiers for lunch.

Originally a private retreat built on a historic mining claim, this new addition to Telluride’s award-winning restaurants is a quaint European hütte perched near the top of Gold Hill.With hand-hewn beams and furniture crafted from reclaimed wine barrels, Alpino Vino provides a high alpine ambience and is reminiscent of restaurants found throughout the Dolomites of Northern Italy. Inside, a warm and inviting atmosphere, complete with a wood burning fireplace, stone floors and exposed wood beams, provides a perfect retreat from the slopes.Situated at 11,966’, Alpino Vino offers fantastic views of the Wilson Range. The expansive multi-tiered deck is a truly unique spot to enjoy a glass of wine with its European teak furniture, coveted daybed and comfortable sheepskin throws. An outdoor wine bar offers a spectacular setting for a midday escape.To visit Alpino Vino during the ski season, take Gold Hill Express (Lift 14) and turn left off the lift to ski down See Forever to our front door.Come enjoy the unique experience that is Alpino Vino!
