"In 1990, with only four wineries to its credit, Colorado was little more than a tiny grape on the vine-map of the country's respected wine regions. More than a decade later, Colorado's wine industry has exploded, growing at a faster pace than any other state in the country. With 38 official wineries, and more cropping up every year, Colorado is finally getting the recognition it deserves as a region with much wine-making growth and potential. Now in its second edition, The Guide to Colorado Wineries is a travel oriented trip through all of Colorado's wineries, from the heart of the industry in Grand Valley near Grand Junction, to the more remote areas of the state, to the popular urban setting of the Front Range. Delving into the histories of each winery, this comprehensive guidebook provides detailed directions with easy-to-read maps, a favorite recipe from each winemaker, a list of local wine-related events and festivals, and a thorough glossary of wine terms. Long-time residents of Colorado, Alta and Brad Smith tasted their first Colorado wine in the 1980s. Alta is an English teacher and an avid cook, and Brad has spent 30 years in the news business in the Rocky Mountain region. The Smiths teach classes that introduce people to the state's wineries and wines." --Back of book.
