Locally produced & bottled wines made from Colorado-grown grapes.
Located in Downtown Nederland, next to the Carousel, is Augustina’s Winery. This one-woman winery was the first winery in Boulder County, Colorado – having been in operation since 1997. Owner and winemaker, Gussie Walter, enjoys making wine for those who love adventure!
Augustina’s features some information on cork production, flavor profiles, and barrels. There is also information on wine aromas and colors, as well as food pairings.
I enjoyed a taster flight of five wines, which came with a complimentary wine glass!
I decided to take home a bottle of the Winechick Blues, which is a smooth, luscious, fruity red wine made from a blend of Colorado grown Merlot and St. Vincent’s. It’s described as going well with some chocolate desserts, most blues music, and all Chris Smithers tunes.
