Grande River Vineyards Launches Two New Wines

Our next-door neighbor, Grande River Vineyards, just launched two more wines: “Havin’ a Cow,” a Colorado red table wine which blends merlot and cabernet sauvignon, and “Coat D’ Roan,” which is 40 percent syrah, 35 percent cinsault and 25 percent mourvedre.

Grande River Winery has approximately 50,000 gallons of fermentation and storage capacity including 300 to 350 French and American oak barrels as well as some Hungarian oak barrels. We also have 26,000 gallons of tank capacity; they produce 7,000-8,000 cases of wine annually.

The winery and vineyard, nestled beneath the Bookcliffs, which tower 2,000 feet above the vineyard. The buttes & mesas radiate warmth down to their vines to ripen the crop to perfection in the late-August through October harvest and protect the vines from severe winter freezes and spring frosts.

Grande River is a short walk through the vines from the Wine Country Inn's front door. Their tasting room is open seven days a week, 9 am -5 pm. Grande River vintages are also available in the Wine Country Inn gift shop.

Grande River also produces the hotel's line of Wine Country Inn wines, including Merlot, Chardonnay, Meritage White, Sauvignon Blanc and Ten Acre Red. These can be tasted at our afternoon wine reception, held in the hotel tasting room daily.
