The Western Slope of the Colorado Rockies is gaining quite a reputation as a wine destination. A group of wineries have teamed up to form the West Elks Wine Trail: a fine way to taste the best of the new west! For this jaunt, we’re talking about a bit of Colorado that’s south of I-70 and north of US 50, just west of the Gunnison National Forest. We’ll start at Leroux Creek Vineyards in Hotchkiss, Colorado, but you can just as easily start at Terror Creek Winery in Paonia, Colorado. It all depends on whether you’d like to meander west to east, or the reverse!

In any case, here are the stops:
*Leroux Creek Vineyards: 13388-3100 Road, Hotchkiss, Colorado; 970:872-4746
*Liliputian Winery: 31428 Highway 92, Hotchkiss, Colorado; 970:872-3019
*Northfork Cellars (at Delicious Orchards): 31930 Highway 133, Paonia, Colorado; 970:527-1110
*Alfred Eames Cellars, 11931 4050 Road, Paonia, Colorado; 970:527-3269
*Black Bridge Winery, 158 Black Bridge Road, Paonia, Colorado; 970:527-6838
*AZURA Cellars, 16764 Farmers Mine Road, Paonia, Colorado; 970:390-4251 or 970:331-2864
*Stone Cottage Cellars, 41716 Reds Road, Paonia, Colorado; 970:527-3444
*Terror Creek Winery (pictured, above left), 17445 Garvin Mesa Road, Paonia, Colorado: 970:527-3484

Note: Three are open daily (usually 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.) year ’round: Leroux Creek Vineyards, Delicious Orchards and Terror Creek. Three more are open daily from Memorial Day through the end of October: Black Bridge Winery AZURA Cellars and Stone Cottage Cellars. Liliputian Winery is open year ’round Monday through Saturday, and Alfred Eames Cellars is open by appointment.
