38. Visit South by Southwest and Zephyr Cellars

 

Check out Fort Collins’ only winery-tasting room! Located inside South by Southwest folk art store is a tasting room for Zephyr Cellars, formerly known as Trail Ridge Winery and formerly located in Loveland. Zephyr is a true Colorado winery, the grapes come from the Western Slope and owner Tim Merrick makes the wine here on the front range. Be prepared to be impressed with the quality. I’m no expert but I’ve been to Chateau Montelena at Napa and plenty of other fancy pants wineries and can say that Zephyr will compete with the best and wont break the bank. Their wines seem to age very well,  most were 2005 vintages and were very well balanced (no tannin overload). I’ll spare you all the arbitrary wine descriptions and just say that everything I tasted was delicious!

Diane Lujan is owner of South by Southwest. They’ve been in business in this same location for 15 years and just recently partnered with Zephyr Cellars. Not only is the tasting room in her store but the wine is fermenting and aging here too! She tells me that women often drop their husbands off at Odell’s and then come to South by Southwest to taste wine and browse their vast selection of fair trade home and garden goods from places like Mexico, Brazil, Peru, and Lambok. You’ll find indoor and outdoor pottery, textiles, saltillo and talavera tiles, mirrors and a lot more. You’ll also meet Blue, the store parrot that may startle you a bit with his vocal antics! There’s a lot to see in this large store, make sure you check out the patio as well. There’s plenty of seating and it feels like a secluded garden. If you’re looking for a quiet place to enjoy good conversation and wine, this is your spot. 

Located at 119 E. Lincoln Ave. Open Monday through Saturday 10-6pm.  970-416-9671
