Raise a Glass to Colorado's Wine Harvest Season

KUSA - The long awaited harvest season has begun in Colorado's wine country. More than 120 Colorado wineries are gearing up for crush. Thousands of wine lovers make the annual pilgrimage to Colorado's Western Slope to sample a growing array of Colorado wines and participate in a variety of events, like grape stomps, festivals, winery tours, winemaker competitions, hands-on workshops and more. With a late spring frost and a relatively cool summer, the harvest is likely to be smaller than in years past, but the grapes that remain should be hearty and of high quality for winemaking. Kyle Schlachter, the outreach coordinator for the Colorado Wine Industry Development board stopped by 9NEWS Tuesday morning and talked about this year's wine harvest and the economic impact it will have on the state.

Palisade-area winemakers get creative as cold weather nips grapes

 PALISADE — First it was hail that pounded the vines in 2009. Then freezing winter weather decimated the next year's crop. Skip forward to 2013 to a spring freeze that killed some varieties of grapes completely and so damaged entire vines that they had to be cut back to nubs.

Colorado Wine, Not an Oxymoron

"In this admittedly tiny sample, the better Colorado wines showed an ability to get a range of complex but fruit-centered flavors onto a friendly frame. If vine age or experience with the vineyards can result in greater depth, the state may have something."
