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.
All of us at Buckel Family Wine feel so honored to be acknowledged as the Gunnison 2020 Chamber Board of Directors New Business of the Year! Small businesses all over Gunnison have shown their creativity and resilience this year. We are humbled to stand out in such an incredible crowd. Thank you for supporting us!
We've had a great summer season in our tasting room. Although the last of autumn's leaves are falling from the trees and the evenings are getting chilly earlier and earlier, we want to keep drinking Colorado wine with you! Our latest release of Zinfandel is available for purchase. Zinfandel is quintessential wine for the United States. Italian immigrants brought over ‘suitcase’ cuttings to plant and enjoy the wine from their homeland. Ours is a medium body red wine, very fruity, finishing with some peppery spice. The grapes for our Zin is sourced out of Palisade, Colorado.
For the time being the tasting room will remain open from 2:00 to 7:00 pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Stay tuned for more information, including special events at the winery, classes, and changes in hours. As long as we are pouring wine, we hope to share a glass with you! Enjoy the last of fall!
