Boutique Winery Residing in Hotchkiss, Colorado

The storm cellar is a boutique winery residing between Hotchkiss and Paonia. It is known for producing high elevation, high quality, aromatic white, and rose wines. Founded in 2017, these are farmed and crafted by the hands of former sommeliers- Jayme Henderson and Steve Steese. The goal of the winery is to showcase the attributes of their extreme vineyard site within its wine, to help bring the West Elks AVA into the national wine spotlight, and to become a premier destination for an elevated, Colorado wine experience.

Denver sommeliers to Colorado winemakers

Steve and Jayme were selected as members of the 2019 and 2020 Colorado Five team in recognition of their work in promoting Colorado wine. The Storm Cellar was featured in a cover story for the weekend edition of The Wall Street Journal, highlighted in the March issue of Wine Spectator and was chosen by the editors of Colorado’s 5280 Magazine as Best winery in their 2019 “Top of the Town” awards.

All seven wines from their inaugural 2018 vintage medaled silver or higher in the 2019 Colorado Governor’s Cup, with two of their Rieslings winning double gold medals and chosen for the Governor’s Cup Collection.

The heart of The Storm Cellar is the historic Redstone Vineyard, within the West Elks AVA. The vineyard boasts a breathtaking, sweeping view that encompasses the fertile valley, farmland, pastures, and orchards of the region, culminating in the snow-crested peaks of Landsend and Mount Lamborn. Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc are grown in their vineyard.
