We spent a nice leisurely afternoon (a couple hours anyway) at Mesa Park with Patty and Chuck. What a treat. A great selection of tasty wine, of which, a few cases ended up in our car.
Mesa Park has a spectacular price point for the quality of wines they produce. The stars of our tasting were....
Estate Rose - beautifully refreshing on our hot July day
2011 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon - nice balance bold red wine
2012 Cab Franc - transported me right back to the Loire Valley and Bordeaux
2012 Estate Family Reserve Red - a perfect blend and star of the show.
Tip - You should not miss this place on your wine tasting adventures in Colorado. It is easy to find and really not an off the beaten path.....it is right on the Fruit and Wine Byway Trail......you cannot miss the big red barn and sign!
The tasting room is quaint, but what sets this winery aside from all others is Patty and Chuck. Very engaging and the perfect hosts for a winery.
A nice couple from Salt Lake came in as we were ending our tasting and shared their experiences in Grand Junction, bike riding over the Colorado National Monument and we all shared wine tasting experiences. These are the moments that a place like Mesa Park Vineyards cultivates.....it's more than just wine!
Oh, and one more tip to try and figure out while visiting Mesa Park.
