Plum Creek Winery
Plum Creek Winery first put roots down in growing wine grapes in 1980. Knowing Colorado has extremely limited areas for grape production they searched two of the areas in western Colorado renowned for growing peaches, cherries and apples. They correctly figured that if the weather was temperate enough for fruit trees it was likely wine grapes could be grown and thrive. Four years later they founded Plum Creek Winery and embarked on a pioneering venture of making premium wines from grapes grown only in Colorado. It was a unique idea at the time for a winery to commit to using only grapes grown in Colorado. As a mark of their early venture Plum Creek holds Colorado winery license No. 10, the oldest license of all of the state’s wineries now in existence.
