Telluride Wine Festival

The most popular grapes grown in Colorado are varieties in the species of European grape Vitis vinifera. The most popular red varieties are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc. The most popular white varieties are Chardonnay, Riesling, and Viognier.

Colorado’s grape growing regions contain some of the highest elevation vineyards in the world. Colorado is home to two designated American Viticultural Areas of the Grand Valley AVA and the West Elks AVA, where most of the vineyards in the state are located.

Here are some of the other wine regions:

The Four Corners area near Cortez,

Vineyards near the  Canyons of the Ancients National Monument and Durango

Pikes Peak/Arkansas River Valley near Salida, Canon City, and Manitou Springs

The Front Range between Fort Collins and Castle Rock

There are also many wineries located in the Denver metropolitan area.

The town of Telluride is the county seat and most populous town of San Miguel County in the southwestern portion of the U.S. state of Colorado. The Telluride Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is also one of Colorado’s 20 National Historic Landmarks.
