Your next date night or mid-day getaway is right up the street. Located in Littleton, CO, Carboy Winery exudes good vibes by presenting small plates, bold flavors, and picturesque views. You can get out of the house and still pour a glass in your own backyard.
And drinking local is exactly the mission. In fact, Carboy Winery takes it to a whole new level. Debuting in 2015, the goal has been to put Colorado vineyards on the map. The result of this area’s grapes has been a smash. Literally. With a network of growers near Denver and throughout the state, these up-start winemakers harvest grapes that become their products’ hearts and souls. This vinery seeks to elevate the Centennial State as the “new frontier” of winemaking, rivaling more well-established regions like Spain, France, or Italy.
Unlike these destinations, you don’t have to book a trip abroad to fully enjoy the experience. Carboy Winery has expanded to three Colorado locations already, with plans to open a fourth within the next year. The Littleton, CO, location crafts unique charcuterie and cheese boards. Guests can enjoy these in the modern, industrial taproom or on the spacious outdoor patio. Sample a little of everything with one of the curated tastings or pairings. You can even join the Littleton, CO, winery for a hosted event. One of the most popular is a five-course meal led by their executive chefs and winemaking team. Diners are treated to stories on Carboy Winery, its history, and tips to enhance wine at home.
If you are stuck at home, the winery is still here to serve. Through their club membership and virtual tastings, you don’t have to live near Denver. Relax and just have it delivered. You can stop and smell the rosé without ever getting off the sofa.
But it’s more than just bites and sips. Carboy Winery also keeps sustainability on its menu. Embracing the “small batch” approach, the vineyard models itself after one of the countless Colorado breweries that litter the state. Although they do bottle some portions of their creations, the company is one of the first to offer wine on tap. Like beer, it’s stored in kegs. Purchased in one-liter growlers, Carboy Winery encourages customers to fill up, drink up and repeat. As a result, to reduce waste in the process.
