A Getaway Guide to Colorado's Unique Mountain Wine Country

Here’s everything you need to make your next Colorado getaway a success – accurate information about the most romantic destinations

There’s no wine country like it, anywhere. It’s found throughout Colorado’s spectacular Rocky Mountain landscape.

Most of the vineyards are on picturesque hillsides and in mesa-rimmed valleys of the western slope; but there is excellent wine being made from Colorado grapes at more than fifty wineries in large cities, in high country resort villages and among the ancient ruins of Four Corners.

There are five Colorado getaway wine trails: Front Range, Central Rockies, Grand Valley, Delta and Four Corners. Each one offers an adventurous weekend getaway amid spectacular scenery, hospitable family wineries, old town shopping, fine restaurants and romantic bed and breakfast inns.

What about you?

Do you spend your weekends thinking about what you’ll have to do Monday? Do work and family issues nag while you mix at a party or sit through a movie? Are your weekends too stressful or predictable?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above, you’re in danger of being overwhelmed by the familiar. Ugh! But it doesn’t have to be that way. To see how everything can change, click on A Better Weekend.

Here’s the help you need

The following information will help you make romantic Colorado getaways and vacations really happen. It provides you with the accurate, easy-to find information you need to find the perfect Colorado getaway destination, and decide what you want to do when you get there.

Here you’ll find the latest word on Colorado wines and wineries, bed and breakfast inns, restaurants, specialty shops, recreation and attractions, plus where you can talk to a guy who caught fish in the past week.

About next weekend . . .

If you’ve stayed with us this far, you’re probably ready to plan a Colorado getaway. Perhaps you feel a twinge of guilt about a taking off for an entire weekend (or a real vacation). Okay. But consider that wine country getaways can be edifying, mind clearing, cost-effective and relationship-nurturing experiences.

If you’re really up tight, remember that such Colorado getaways can also be educational experiences – think viticulture, microbiology, history, gastronomy, archeology, geography and geology.

So, cleaning out the garage is not an option. It’s neither edifying, educational nor romantic.
