Someone with the Internet nom de plume of Gigglesoup has to be a person of discerning tastes. Gigglesoup blogs for Destination Weddings, and here's what he/she had to say.
Under the headline, "Wine Country Wedding in Colorado?" Gigglesoup wrote:
"Yes, absolutely. You didn't know there were wineries in Colorado, now, did you? Well, there are. Quite a number of them in fact, located around Grand Junction and the surrounding area."
"What this means for you is that you can add Grand Junction, Colorado to your list of destinations for a beautiful wine country wedding. And, one venue which should top your list is The Wine Country Inn, located near Grand Junction in Palisade, Colorado's first wine-themed hotel, situated in the middle of 21 acres of vines."
"If you decide to have your wedding at the Inn, you can choose from several different sites on the property, from the outdoor Pavilion among the vines, a landscaped courtyard, the Vineyard Ballroom, or several smaller sites for more intimate ceremonies. For your reception, you can have the Chef create any type of event you want, from a formal dinner to a more casual hors d'oeuvres reception. And, before or after the wedding, you and your guests will have many opportunities for wine tastings, as the Inn is adjacent to two wineries and a short drive to many more."
"The area around Grand Junction is truly an outdoor lover's paradise. For hikers, you have the awesome Grand Mesa National Forest, the world's largest flat top mountain, dotted with hundreds of lakes. Grand Junction is also located at the confluence of the Gunnison and Colorado Rivers, a dream location for rafters and kayakers."
