“Where the wine and the views are both meant to be savored,” is a statement that welcomes visitors upon coming across the website of Evening Grace Vineyards, and it couldn’t be closer to the truth. Nestled in the North Fork Valley with the stunning backdrop of the West Elk Mountains, Evening Grace Estate is an intimate winery, bed and breakfast located in Hotchkiss, CO.
The wife and husband owners decided after their fruitful corporate careers chose to retire in the North Fork Valley area and begin new careers as winemakers and farmers. What began as a small farm and wine-making venture has now grown into their home, a vineyard, bed and breakfast, winery, and tasting room – creating the lovely Evening Grace Estate.
Their charming 36-acre estate features a large meadow, colorful gardens, rolling pastures, and a small vineyard where their Italian red grapes are planted and grow amidst the climate of Colorado.
Wines made in Hotchkiss
Four Italian reds are planted in their vineyard – Pinot Noir, Barbera, Nebbiolo, and Dolcetto. A list of their wines includes a Pinot Noir, Barbera, Chardonnay, a red wine blend, Riesling, and a white wine blend.
Tours & Wine Tastings
Discover life on the hill with a tour and wine tasting at the Evening Grace Estate tasting room. Enjoy a glass of wine on their outdoor patio while you take in the beautiful landscape that surrounds the estate. Beyond their wine tastings, they also sell homemade wine soaps and a chance to pet their dancing farm goats.
The tasting room will be open May 16th through September 27th, 2020 – Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 6:00 p.m.
Stay a little longer and book a room at their bed and breakfast. They offer two bedrooms from the walkout basement of their home for visitors to rent.
