Lovies Vineyard

Lovies Vineyard, although quite small, produces some of the greatest grapes in all of Colorado. So, what makes Lovies so special? Well, it starts with the farming. Owned by Ken and Karen Loveland, this vineyard produces the most unique and singular fruit we work with. The grapes are typically 2-3 times smaller than most Cabernet or Merlot. This increases the skin-to-juice ratio during fermentation, thus intensifying the natural levels of flavor, tannin and acidity in the finished wine. Lovies is also notable for it’s low yielding nature. Less grapes on each vine means that there isn’t as much competition and both the grapes and stems are able to ripen fully. Indeed, each vintage the stems are fully lignified and developed, imbuing a rare maturity into the finished wine. This method of low yield farming matches perfectly with our natural style of winemaking.

    • Forget everything you know about Merlot! This Merlot defies varietal expectations and is easily one of our most impressive Merlots. Black cherry, raspberry candy and rich chocolate fill out the flavor profile. This is a serious Merlot and can easily compete with any Cabernet out there.

    • A classic and jawdropping Balistreri Cabernet. Although young, this shows amazing maturity and depth overall. The structure is solid but pleasing with immense dark fruit character and incredible length. No doubt this is a powerful and serious wine, yet it retains beautiful balance and vibrancy.
