Bookcliff Vineyards at the Broncos Fundraiser

Danica at the Broncos Fundraiser
There was Colorado wine at the Broncos fundraiser this year. Exclusively!!! And we were there to tell about it. Bookcliff Vineyards Malbec and Friday's Folly White were poured for the guests with other Colorado wines. This was a great event for Bronco fans that love good food (best restaurants in Denver served up their fare) and wine.

New Release at Bookcliff Vineyards - MALBEC 2015

Bookcliff Vineyards bottled its 2015 Malbec, not just in a 750ml regular bottle with label, but also in a handsome carafe that can be refilled at the winery. People told us about their great experience in Italy where they could their empty bottle and get it filled with wine. Now you can do it right here in Boulder. Lower your carbon foot-print and buy a Bookcliff Vineyards' Malbec in a carafe; no more recycling. Come on over and get started with the program today.

BookCliff Viognier 2014 fares well in blind tasting

Paula Mitchell from Exploring Colorado Wineries gave us some nice compliments for our 2014 Viognier. She tasted five Viogniers blind. Among them was a wine from Chile, California, Australia and France and Colorado (Bookcliff Vineyards). In the quest for something else than Chardonnay many regions planted Viognier and gave it a try. Two areas we recently visited, the Okanagan region in British Columbia and Amador county in California produce Viognier. And as Paula pointed out many Colorado wineries produce great Viognier.
