Located at 5800ft elevation and nestled on the foothills of the sleeping Ute Mountain that overlooks Mesa Verde in SW Colorado, the vineyard boasts 360-degree views of Ship Rock to the south, Mesa Verde to the east, and the La Plata’s and San Juan’s. The Box Bar is 12 acres of Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, farmed by hand, 100% sustainably, and with no artificial sprays or fertilizers.  


The Box Bar vineyard sits next to the Yucca House National Monument - an un-excavated ancestral Puebloan ruin (literally next to it - 200ft above it). Throughout the vineyard, which is red dirt and rock, you can find ancient pottery shards and an un-excavated kiva is still visible under the rows that run east/west. It's a magical place.  

At 6,800 feet in elevation the Hawk's Nest Vineyard sits just below the top rim of the Montezuma Valley outside of Delores, CO and is considered to be the highest commercial vineyard in North America.  It has a southwest slope towards the 9,984 foot Sleeping Ute Mountain.  Insuring good cold air drainage, there is a 100ft drop in elevation from top to bottom.  The Soils are primarily Wetherill Loam that were the preferred soils for dry farming for thousands of years in this area because of their water holding capacity.  Across the valley to the south is Mesa Verde National Park creating some of the most beautiful vistas in SW Colorado.  The vineyard produces incredibly elegant well structured Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.  


Named after the Canyon of The Ancients National Monument this vineyard is located West of Sand Canyon some 6 miles from the Utah border.  15 acres of Syrah, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon at the base of the Sleeping Ute.  Planted in 2001 this vineyard makes powerful, opulent wines of great intensity.
