M’lady and I spent a long weekend in western Colorado and the town of Paonia for the North Fork Uncorked winefest.

The Wineries we visited, continued:

AZURA WINERY

The wines: DSC_2898 Yes Virginia that is a CHOCOLATE WINE SAUCE.  I can’t wait!  Azura does not grow their own grapes but buys them in the local area.  We bought the wines pictured above.

See more of my Azura photos here.
See their website for more wine and art information.

TERROR CREEK WINERY

According to their website “Terror Creek Winery, at 6,417 feet, is home to the highest-altitude commercial winery and vineyard not only in western Colorado, but in the world!”

STONE COTTAGE CELLARS

Our perennial favorite.  We have visited here many times.  This time we joined the superb Winemaker’s Dinner.  What a special treat!

See more Stone Cottage Dinner photos here. DSC_2892 For the wine-obsessed (that would be me) one more Wine Weekend post should wrap it.  (I don’t know anything about wine but I know what I like.)  🙂  To be continued…
