Buckel Family Wine

Around Crested Butte & Colorado

Having first met in Crested Butte, fallen in love in Colorado, and cultivated our passion for making really good wine here in Colorado, there’s no place we’d rather be. There’s something about this land, the people, and the way time passes here. You can see it in the vibrant sunsets, draping the sandstone cliffs that tower over the Western Slope’s orchards and vineyards, feel it while shaking hands and exchanging laughs with a farmer as you load up the season’s harvest, and taste it while taking that first sip of a new vintage, as fall’s cooler air funnels into the valley and golden aspens glow in the low-angled afternoon sun.

Colorado is truly a special place, and we aim to share as much of it with you as possible. From the terroir, to the history, and the adventures that await, come back here often for our family’s favorites of Colorado and Crested Butte.

Grand River Valley AVA

Two of our favorite growers in the Grand Valley AVA are Black Bear Orchards and Colorado Vineyard Specialists.  Joe has had the pleasure of working with these  guys for a decade.  

Black Bear Orchards is run by Brain and Rebecca Cox.  They have over 150 acres of fruit orchard, including Cherries, Peaches, Plums, and Wine Grapes.  In our opinion he produces some of the best Colorado Fruit, often organic and now found in Krogers/City Markets across the state.  You can also purchase from them directly.  Brain is a 2nd generation farmer in the Palisade region.

Kaibab Sauvage owns and operates Colorado Vineyard Specialists.  He has been in the vineyard most of his life and farms over 50 acres of wine grapes in the Grand Valley.  

When in Palisade be sure to check out the Palisade Café, and our favorite spots in Grand Junction, Bin 707 Food Bar, and Taco Party with Josh Neimenberg.

Crested Butte Mountain Bike Trail

Choosing a favorite trail in Crested Butte, is not for the faint-hearted.  The high alpine meadows, aspen forested hills, and rocky outcroppings provide endless opportunity.  Weather and season will most definitely factor into your decision of where to roll on any given day.   

One of our favorite bike rides is Snodgrass.  When Joe and Shamai first met in Crested Butte eons ago, this was the backyard ride.  The trail has just enough shade on hot sunny days, a couple gnarly root sections, fun flowy downhill, wildflowers galore, and tackiness after a rain.  TIP: Check for season closures before you ride.

With so many trails to choose from do not get lost in finding the best one, just get out there and play!
