West Elks Wine Trail
August 5 - August 6
Pairing the best of Colorado wines and cuisine
The wineries of the West Elks Wine Country invite you to a special weekend of touring, premium wine tasting and food pairings during the 8th Annual West Elks Wine Trail. Set your own route for a fun and relaxing day or weekend and come home with delicious wine and memories.
Start your West Elks Wine Trail tour by stopping by Black Bridge Winery to pick up your trail map for the weekend.
On Saturday and Sunday, enjoy a rare opportunity of a Barrel Tasting at Black Bridge Winery – 11am and 4pm. Complimentary tasting.
Each of the nine wineries in the Paonia/Hotchkiss area will feature food and wine pairings, with a focus on local foods. Winemakers have selected two favorite foods to complement their wines, and give you the recipes just for stopping by.
A variety of activities are offered from vineyard tours, art displays, tastings, winemakers’ dinners, food pairings, mountain views and more. Complimentary wine glasses go to those who travel along the wine trail and collect recipes from at least five wineries.
We invite and encourage you to purchase wines from the winemakers. Many of the vintages from this region are only available at the wineries and are extremely limited.
