Winery - Tasting Room - Vineyard
Blendings at the Hillside Vineyard is an experiential boutique winery in Fort Collins, Colorado.
The first question we inevitably get when people visit us for the first time is “So how does this work?” Well, let us fill you in. We have already started the process before you walked in by stocking our shelves with unique, bold, and delicious wines. Once you arrive at the tasting room, you will be greeted by our friendly and informative staff who will direct you to the wine counter for your order.
At the wine counter you will be presented with options including a taste of wine, a flight of wine or you can simply enjoy a glass of wine. We also carry wines by the bottle.
We have a rotating list of wines that you can select from and include Red Blends, White Blends and our Rosé Blends.
Our winemakers have been working on a new Signature Series of wines coming this summer!!
Mix and Taste a Personal Creation
With help from our Winemaker and knowledgeable staff, visitors get the opportunity to micro-blend a bottle of wine. The experience is intended to be a “hands-on” learning opportunity for customers to have fun with friends and family while indulging in their passion for wine.
During the 2 hour session you’ll sample five varieties of wines, learn, and take notes on which of the samples appeal to you and why. Blending two or three will ultimately result in a taste that excites you and gives you a wine A-HA! That special blend becomes your personal recipe that you can bottle.
Blendings Experience Includes
- 5 samples of wine
- A bottle to take home of your custom blend.
And of course, lots of fun and education while learning, and sampling a variety of wines.
Looking for the Perfect Gift?
Blendings is located in the countryside northwest of Fort Collins, Colorado.
The winery sits on The Hillside Vineyard property, a popular wedding and event venue. The property inspires a feeling of being secluded in nature despite being only minutes from downtown Fort Collins. A small vineyard of Frontenac Blanc grapes are planted on the property. We invite you out to see these beautiful yellow and gold berries. They produce a very light straw colored wine and lend themselves to a semi-sweet wine flavor. In addition to our Frontenac Blanc vines, we also have vineyard of grapes and hedges of Aronia. The Aronia berry is native to Poland and exhibits a dark purple berry that is packed with antioxidants and health benefits. Both fruits are utilized to make wine, jams and jellies.
Blendings provides customers with a unique opportunity to experience high quality wines that have been produced by established wineries throughout the United States. With help from our Winemaker, a visitor gets the opportunity for one hour to personally micro-blend, bottle, and custom label their individual blend of wine that is personalized for their palate and preferences. The experience is intended to be a “hands on” learning opportunity for customers to have fun with friends and family while indulging in their passion for wine.
