Colorado: A Beautiful State of Wine!
Colorado's abundant sunshine, warm days, cool nights, and low humidity provide the perfect conditions for wine grapes that feature the complex character and chemistry required to craft award-winning wines. The federal government has designated two regions in Colorado as American Viticultural Areas (AVA): The Grand Valley AVA, including Grand Junction and Palisade, and the West Elks AVA, surrounding Paonia and Hotchkiss. Our state's wineries are an important part of Colorado's agritourism, offering wine tastings, winery tours, vineyard tours, and wine festivals.
