Next to the Garden of the Gods
The winery is nestled in the Black Forest in Colorado across from the Airforce Academy and close to Garden of the Gods. The company was created in August 12th, 2007. The winery is owned and operated by the Shapiro family.
Perseverance and hard work pay off
The Shapiro family holds an interesting story regarding their company’s journey. They first started growing the vines in the pots and were surprised and impressed to see the results. They then started to grow them extensively. Since the winter was quite hard, they had a bad year in 2009 when early snow killed most of their vines. But in 2010, the family again started growing their vines a today they own 600 vines. When they first began in 2007, they made wines from Home brew shops creating their own kits.

The beautiful Black Forest is a great place to visit and enjoy varieties of Colorado wines, cheeses, farm products, and to experience the Black Forest History.
