Colorado Wines: The Next Big Thing

Posted by | · · · · · | Colorado · Colorado wine · Denver · drink local · eat local | No Comments on Colorado Wines: The Next Big Thing

Colorado Wines When it come to wine regions in the world, Colorado probably doesn’t come to mind. With places like Italy, Spain, Portugal, Chile, California, and France dominating, Colorado vineyards have some tough competition. Being new to the industry, Colorado wines find it hard to compete against wine regions that have been famous for many years.   Regardless of the competition, Colorado wines are up and coming. In fact, Colorado has an advantage. Since it’s so new, it might be more exciting than the Napa and Sonoma Valley wines that we are all too familiar with. How Many Vineyards are in Colorado?

Drinking at DIA

Posted by | · · · · · · · | Colorado · Denver · Denver food and wine · drink local · eat local · Sin categoría · things to do in Colorado | No Comments on Drinking at DIA

There’s a lot you can do at the airport: shop, sleep, people watch, and of course, drink. It doesn’t matter the time of day or where you’re flying to, there’s no judgment about drinking about the airport (unless you’re drunk on your flight; don’t be that person). You can start your morning with a Bloody Mary or just go straight for the beer and there’s nothing strange about it. If your flight’s delayed and you’re looking to kill some time, the bar’s your friend. It’s a great place to pass the time, get your vacation started early, and even meet some very interesting people.   Fortunately for those who are flying in and out of Denver, the state’s love of […]

Open a decade in the small Denver neighborhood of Sunnyside, Bonacquisti Wine Company have cemented themselves as a great part of the Colorado wine scene. Paul Bonacquisti, founder and winemaker, comes from a long-line of winemakers. “I grew up making wine as a family hobby. So I learned from my dad, who passed it on from my grandfather, who came from Italy,” he says. He had a job in radio, but when they switched formats and no longer needed him, he got his Certified Sommelier certification and went back to his winemaking roots.   The idea to open an urban winery was a bit of a no brainer. He lived in the area and didn’t want to move, farming isn’t […]

  Since they opened ten years ago, Wild Women Wine has been a staple in the Denver urban winery scene. Owners Charlene and Ross (the winemaker of it all) are getting ready to celebrate the ten year anniversary of being open; in that time they’ve seen the Colorado Wine scene grow and boutique wineries make their mark. When they started out as a Denver urban winery, as Charlene said, “we knew that we wanted to be someplace that a) had high foot traffic, and b) people were going to be surprised to see the word winery,” but when they rebranded as Wild Women Wine about five years ago, they would never have guessed at just how appealing the name would […]
