This winery hidden in the industrial district of Denver, is such a cute spot. Would be an amazing venue for a wedding.

We often stop for lunch they have a tasting bar and several bistro style tables and serve a nice fresh lunch. Very tasty and reasonable $$.

Fun place to wine taste. The owners are generally behide the counter as well which make it very personal. Everyone is extremely knowledgeable and nice too! You can also take a tour of the cellar if you'd like. Taste, buy a bottle and enjoy lunch. Our lunch was great along with the Brothers Cabernet. It's well worth the trip. No tasting fee if you buy a bottle...or two!

While we went because we were intrigued by the winery, we were surprised by the lunch option there as well. There is not a vineyard on site and the grapes that are used are mostly from California as theur vines only produce every 2-3 years per the owners. The site is in an industrial section on town so we were a little put off without having this knowledge prior to our arrival. The tour is run by the owner, and their process of making wine is interesting and worth the trip. There are a lot of wines to choose from and you can taste them all if you would like, but 20 tastings seemed like too much for us. The staff was very friendly, and it made for a nice afternoon. The lunch option was a great bonus and made the afternoon excursion worth the visit.

This is not your destination location restaurant. It is your destination location vineyard. OK - there isn't a vineyard behind the place but all of their terrific wines are available for tasting. You will definitely find something you like. They are true experts in making wine. They don't use foil on their wine either - preferring wax which makes the bottle even more elegant.
They have a nice restaurant - we had lunch there - I'm not sure it's even open for a dinner.
The lunch menu is nicely varied with lots to choose from.
We were surprised in the freshness and quality.
It's not "bar food" by a long shot and of course - you get to have wine with your meal.
