M’lady and I spent a long weekend in western Colorado and the town of Paonia for the North Fork Uncorked winefest.  Colorado makes some very decent wines these days, not only in the West Elks area but all around Grand Junction and Palisades, Colorado too.  Some lists have over 100 wineries throughout the state.

THE TAKE-HOME

FROM WHENCE IT CAME

BLACK BRIDGE WINERY and ORCHARD VALLEY FARMS & MARKET

Henceforth to be referred to as BBWandOVF&M.  Their website.  We were early arrivals so owner Lee Bradley gave the two of us a personalized tour.  Country kind of him I’d say.  We loved it.  Loved the wine, food, and fruit (in season) too.

Our BBWandOVF&M wines and accoutrement:

The BBW Pinot Noir Reserve was outstanding.  It was one of our top two favorites of the weekend.
