Passed down from the previous generation, Stoney Mesa Winery in Cedaredge, CO has been producing flavorful wines since 1989. The award-winning winery prides itself on sustainable agriculture – a low environmental impact method of farming.
Nestled beneath the southern slopes of the Grand Mesa, their winery is situated in the center of their 10-acre vineyard, which resides on their 50-acre farm. Here they produce some Merlot and Chardonnay.
But they also have another vineyard in Grand Junction, situated in the Grand Valley American Viticultural Area (AVA). This older, yet smaller, vineyard produces their Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. The original planting for this vineyard was done in 1982, making it one of the oldest commercial vines in the state.
Their rustic indoor tasting room in Cedaredge is one that offers both charm and character, which is also met with an outdoor area overlooking the vineyards and grounds. It’s perfect for enjoying your tastings or a glass of wine.
The tasting room, a true blast from the past, still stands today as it once did in the late 1800s. The structure itself was once an original homestead house, built at the turn of the 19th century. Although modern touches have been added, it’s the family’s goal to keep its original charm by decorating it with the materials that were found on the property.
Tasting room locations:
They have two tasting rooms located on Colorado’s Western Slope. They do not charge a tasting fee at either of their tasting rooms.
