Very nice winery with helpful staff.
Wines from the western slope tend to be on the fruity side, but I had good wines previously from Grande Vineyards and wanted to visit the physical location. Everyone gets 3 complimentary tastings. The tasting area itself isn't very large, and it was a bit crowded that afternoon given that it was the same weekend as the Peach Fest.
I'm a red wine person, but we walked out of there with a bottle of delicious viognier. I was a little disappointed I didn't find a good enough red, but I view this as expanding my palate. Given the large impressive entrance doors, I guess I was expecting something a little more "grand;" based on previous experiences at some other wineries, I had hoped to be able to purchase a platter of cheese, sausage, and bread or something to go with a glass of wine - you know, sit outside and enjoy the vineyard. But alas, it was a much quicker, simpler experience.
GV is one of the larger vineyards in Colorado, and with their convenient location just off I-70, I recommend you stop by!
