Examiner author Christopher Davies continues his survey of Colorado's wine scene. Under the headline, "Colorado's Burgeoning Wine Country, Part 2- The Front Range," Davies writes:
"Colorado now boasts more than 80 bonded wineries. Most people would be surprised to learn that many of these wineries are not located on a vineyard. Boulder County holds the record for the most number of Front Range wineries."
"Several wineries are just a quick drive from downtown Denver. The most popular, family run operation is Balistreri Vineyards which produces a unique handcrafted range of hearty wines in the old-world tradition. Originally in the flower nursery business, John Balistreri made wine for home consumption, just like his Sicilian forefathers, before becoming a commercial wine maker."
