Bad Bitch Cellars was created all because two girls loved to go to Wine Tastings and the adventure of traveling the world in search of their next favorite wine. These two girls are not afraid of entrepreneurship and the history of wine is fascinating to them.
Chill Switch Wines is a family-owned boutique winery in Cedaredge, Colorado. Winemaker Dave Aschwanden creates his wines with patience and old world techniques that allow the wine to develop its complex flavors naturally. We age our reds in french oak for 30 months, our whites between 18-30 months in stainless steel. Crafted exclusively from grapes grown in Colorado, all Chill Switch wines are made without adulteration: no freaky stuff. No color enhancers, flavorings, artificial aromas, stabilizers, clarifiers etc. Do you want a wine without all the adjustments and additions so common in most mass produced wines? Do you want a wine that is also vegan, that is without the animal based fining/filtering materials so often used? Then reach for Chill Switch

Our passion for wine making is in Rhône style ultra-premium wines which we hand-craft with the utmost attention to detail. Our wine making accepts no compromise in ingredients or handling practices, resulting in beautifully decadent wines with heaps of flavor and attitude.
We source grapes from California’s Central Coast, as well as Walla Walla, WA, and even here in Colorado. The grapes we purchase are top-notch and arrive at our crush pad about 20 hours after pick. This allows us to focus on flavor, balance and ripeness of fruit lending to wines that exhibits the integrity that was put into them in the vineyard.
We practice sustainability by managing water, power and waste, as well as insuring any organic matter goes back to the earth rather than landfills. We donate our grape pumice to the Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield Arboretum location, which is a nitrogen rich compost enhancement.
