Colorado Wine Country

Took off for a quick overnight to Paonia to visit some wineries. We went to 4, Azura, Stone Cottage, Terror Creek and Black Bridge. The last 3 are true wineries in the sense that they grow the grapes and make the wine. The first is a beautiful property with a fabulous location and views. The proprietors at all 4 were welcoming and friendly, a necessity for the business they've chosen. Small producers all, it was fun to chat with people who love what they're doing. The wines varied in quality and varietals. Though we enjoyed them all, my favorite winery was Black Bridge while Steve's was Stone Cottage.

A yummy dinner at Eleni's Uptown and now a room (#8) at The Bross, a charming historic B&B a block off Paonia's main drag.

Tomorrow, maybe the North Rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison.
