Our farm market and winery is located in the rugged, pristine North Fork Valley of the Gunnison River near Paonia, Colorado – a place so beautiful our produce can’t help but taste great! The 80 acre farm was established in 1976 as a grower supplier for wholesale fruit packing houses in western Colorado. Our agricultural roots fostered grape growing for Colorado’s emerging wine scene and earned a reputation for great Pinot Noir. We launched Black Bridge Winery with wines from our vineyards in the West Elks.
Where the Old World meets the New! Our young vineyard features the latest varieties of cold hardy North American hybrid grapes (Petite Pearl, Traminette, Crimson Pearl, Verona, and Itasca) that promise New World wines challenging the quality of Old World vinifera. Combined with vinifera wines produced from Colorado's Grand Valley grapes. we offer a wide variety of wines and styles that provide an unmatched wine tasting experience..
The vineyard is planted in Italian Reds.... Pinot Noir, Barbera, Nebbiolo, & Dolcetto. With luck we can hang on to the Nebbiolo until November before picking. These grapes are difficult to grow in this area as they need a longer hang time. With cooperative weather they will make it to a higher brix and deliver a nice wine. Each year in the vineyard has it's challenges but quite rewarding when all elements work in unison to bring interesting complexities to the wine. As some of our wines age, we will present & promote additional Colorado wines from the area. We'd invite you to come taste the fruits of our labor.
Our vineyards cover 4 acres of our 54 acre farm. We grow two hybrid varieties, Chambourcin and Cayuga. All of our grapes are raised organically. The vineyard is in the West Elk American Viticultural Area (AVA) and we share grapes, knowledge, experience and the occasional glass of wine with the other vintners in the area. We use local fruits when in season to make small quantities of delicious fruit wines.
Mesa Winds Farm & Winery is pleased to be located in the West Elks American Viticultural Area. Our wines express the true nature of the area’s terroir as we only use the Certified Organic grapes grown on our farm.
The soils on our farm are clay loam with limestone gravel and caliche base, similar to soil composition in Burgundy. Our vineyard altitude is 5800-5700′ on a southern slope so vines ripen in hot sun and cool nights. This gives the grapes the right balance of sweetness and acid. We allow our grapes to express the unique character of place in the wines we produce.
