Great wines come from many places. Our first estate vineyards were planted in early 2000 and since then, Garfield Estates Vineyard & Winery has been committed to a simple approach. Produce high quality wines using Colorado Estate grown grapes that appeal to a broad spectrum of wine lovers. This translates to growing the highest quality grapes possible using sustainable methods in the vineyard and applying passion and know how to turning those grapes into drinkable, approachable wines. Making that possible requires successful execution in all aspects of the wine making business. Good grapes come from the unique Colorado growing conditions or terroir, including close to the same degree days as Napa Valley, bright, high altitude sunny days and cool evenings. Taking solid grapes and making delicious wine also requires a capable facility, good equipment and knowledgeable wine making. Our scale offers the opportunity to hand craft each wine to insure adherence to our philosophy of high quality, approachability and broad appeal. We are a family owned and operated business that flows from a shared passion for the living thing that is wine. We thrive on offering to share our passion and offer hospitality to our guests and wine club members. Please be assured that you will always be at home when visiting Garfield Estates Vineyard & Winery. Our Best Regards!
