“The only wine bar in Telluride, now has a fabulous Tapas Menu! Yes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013 via mobile

The wine list is extensive and tasty. The beautiful art work on the walls changes every time I go. It is the only sophisticated adult hangout in Telluride. Sit at the wine bar, or at tables in an art gallery, or snuggle up on the couch with your significant other and a fine glass of wine. Not to mention, they finally have real food. Yes, the fondue was nice, but there is only so much cheese one can eat in a sitting. Nice job to Zest for the unique and excellent options on the tapas menu. Yummy grilled meat skewers, my favorite ahi poke, duck empanadas, and much more! All go fabulously with wine. The food is only on the weekends, so don't get too excited.

“Best Wine Bar in all the Rocky Mountains!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2013

Love this place! Stumbled upon it on my cross-country trip atop a 7 year old Ducati. Arroyo is what a wine bar should be- no matter where you might find yourself- but if you happen to be in the decidedly contrived but none-the-less-oh-so-charming village of Telluride, Colorado, you will not be disappointed in Arroyo. Great selection of wine by the glass, great atmosphere, and great service. What more can you ask for?

“Great wine and fondue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2013 via mobile

Spent about an hour before dinner sampling the wine, fondue, and stories from one of the co-owners. All were superb and left me craving more. This place cares about every aspect of the business and it shows. From the decor to the choice of wine and fondue. If your looking for something a little different, this place is a must. Highly recommend!

“Great wines, great conversation and good friends to be made”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2013

Spent quite a bit of time here during our extended stay in Telluride. The team here is awesome, always ready to share a great bottle or answer any questions. Lots of well-priced options, from both large and small producers. The bar is best- especially for getting to know the town. Lovely gallery as well, and the fondue looks divine!

“Go for the fondue!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2013

We had a wonderful fondue dinner. They just started doing fondue Fridays and Saturdays. The cheese was great, the sides were great, and the wine was WONDERFUL. Their staff was very knowledgable about wine and were able to recommend great wines at all the different price points. The atmosphere is very romantic, but groups could definitely have fun there too.
