Raise a Glass to These Delicious, Local Colorado Wines

Bottoms up!

Colorado Wine Board has a selection of fabulous regional wines to satiate your palate. You can even get creative and make these refreshing wine cocktails for your weekend parties. All of these wines are 2017 Governor’s Cup winners and can be found in stores all over the Front Range. Raise a glass to the great wines that Colorado has to offer.

Mile High Mimosas
If you’re making Mimosas this weekend, consider using Denver’s own Infinite Monkey Theorem Sparkling Wine to monkey up your traditional brunch cocktail.

Colorado Kalimotxo
The Kalimotxo is a cocktail consisting of equal parts red wine and a cola-based soft drink. To make a Colorado version of this Spanish cocktail, try the 2015 Merlot from The Winery at Holy Cross.

Tinto de Verano Colorado
This summery drink is similar to sangria and also popular in Spain. Use award-winning Tyrannosaurus Red from Carlson Vineyards mixed with Sprite or 7 Up.

Western Slope Sangria
Sangria’s are a great way to celebrate National Wine Day. Try making yours with Sweetheart Red by Grand Junction winery Whitewater Hill to give it a Colorado feel.

Rocky Mountain Raspberry and Tonic
Try a wine twist on traditional tonic drinks with Colorado Cellars Raspberry Wine. Garnish with mint and raspberries to top off National Wine Day.
