Winter Park Winery Owns Palisade Vineyard

The Sky-Hi Daily News featured a Winter Park Winery, Verso, in a recent issue. According to Sky Hi Reporter Cyndi McCoy, the winery owns and harvests its own grapes in Palisade.
Under the headline, 'Winter Park/Wine: 'When You're Drinking It, You're the Expert," McCoy writes:

"Accolades continue for Verso Wine Cellar."

"The Winter Park tasting room’s cabernets have received four competition medals so far and its new arrival has just as much promise. Special deals are available through November.

"The company, passionately run by Linda Cumming and new manager Bryan Miller, has offered four signature vintages since it opened its doors in December 2005. The 2006 vintage just arrived this month and is said to be the mellowest and fruitiest of the line, “while still retaining the walnut shell-like tannins at the finish,” Cumming said. “I love how it is coming along.”

"The elegant wines are simply titled, Verso Colorado Cabernet Sauvignon, along with the year of harvest.

“'It doesn’t need a fancy name,' said Cumming who grew all the grapes at her own vineyard in Palisade. 'It’s just a good wine.'

"The Verso name comes from her 28 years working with the Denver Public Library. Verso, she explained, is Latin for reverse and a verso is the reverse side of a book’s title page. Like her wine labels, the verso tells the reader everything they need to know about the work."

Verso does make fabulous wines, I've tasted and bought plenty. And, the tasting room is one of the "don't miss" places for anyone visiting Winter Park and the Fraser Valley.
