The winery was pretty much destroyed by last September's flooding. Wish I had a picture to show the devastation - the river decided to take a shortcut right through the middle of the property. Volunteers helped move ~ 200 cases of wine into the Longmont Mall before Christmas. No ideas about any reopening plans or new owners, but can't imagine it will be anytime soon.

Thank you for your interest in Ciatano Winery. As you said, the resort on Rt 36 was destroyed by the floods of September. However, we are now re-opened on Main Street in Lyons and hope to see you there. Thanks again. ....Jay

Stopped at the winery because the "OPEN" flag was still out, but their website was still listing a closing time of 5 p.m., even in the middle of summer on a Saturday. I'm glad they were open later, but their website should be updated to reflect this. The wines were decent and it is a pretty location, but the son of the new owners served us, and he didn't really know anything. I just got the impression that they haven't decided what they want to do with the winery (they purchased it in early 2013).

I'm a local, and have been to Ciatano's a couple of times, usually not in the summer when it's crowded with tourists on their way to/from Estes Park. It's especially beautiful in the fall, when the leaves are changing. Very relaxing and peaceful at the right time.

So why only a 3 rating? Well, it's an average - the setting is a 5, no doubt. Unfortunately, the wines are only a 1 or 2, depending on which one you try. Having said that, I haven't had their wine for a couple of years now, so will give it another try in a couple of months and update this review with the results.

Its easy to drive right by this place once you leave Lyons, but do stop! The grapes come from the Western Slope, but are currently pressed in Ft. Collins then aged here by the banks of the St. Vrain River. Bonus is they smoke their own trout, also, so order a plate with your wine flight, sit by the pond and relax.

This site has a beautiful wine room with some great red wines. You get 5 wines for $5, and the location is about 1/2 hour from Estes Park. The whole location is beautiful which includes a fish pond, and fishing is allowed for $35. Even if you do not want to fish you can buy fish food from the winery and feed the fish in the pond. What a blast for the kids; our granddaughter went wild feeding the fish. You can purchase food from the grill, or cheese, crackers, sausage or jerky from the winery and relax while you sip wine and have lunch on the beautiful patio or near the fish pond. A spa and lodging are also available at this location, though we have not used these services they sound wonderful. So much is offered here you have to check out their website.
