Welcome to the North Fork Valley and West Elks AVA


About Us


Our Story

Cyndi and Brian moved to Paonia in June 2015, escaping the rat race and finding the "community" they sought in the North Fork Valley. They immediately commenced their "endless endeavor" on their 8 acre farmette, pursuing their  gardening, grape-growing, and winemaking dreams.


Our Land

On Pitkin Mesa one mile from downtown Paonia, in the North Fork Valley of the Gunnison River amidst the West Elk Mountains. The 360 degree view encompasses the Valley, Mt. Lamborn and Land's End, Gunnison Mountain, The Raggeds, and nearby Black Canyon and Grand Mesa.  Our south facing vineyard and hay pasture features fertile clay loam, kept lush in the high desert by Fire Mountain Canal irrigation.


Our Wines

The vineyard is young, with the first significant harvest planned for fall 2019.. The latest varieties of cold hardy North American hybrid grapes (Petite Pearl, Traminette, Crimson Pearl, Verona, and Itasca) promise to offer wines that challenge the quality of old world varieties. We also offer vinifera wines produced from West Elks and Grand Valley AVA grapes, including Pinot Grigio, Primitivo, Syrah, Chardonnay, and Merlot
