Blendings is a unique and exciting winery nestled in the foothills directly adjacent to the grapevines at The Hillside Vineyard. Enjoy our wine blends on-site or make a reservation for a truly hands-on experience.
Blendings winery sits on The Hillside Vineyard property nestled in the foothills of Fort Collins, Colorado. The property inspires a feeling of being secluded in nature despite being only minutes from downtown Fort Collins. We grow three varieties of grapes on our property. A small vineyard of Frontenac Blanc, Marquette, Louis Swenson grapes and a superfruit berry called Aronia are all planted on the property. We invite you out to see, taste, and touch these beautiful berries. Our berries are used to make dried fruit, juices, wines, jams and jellies, flavored chocolates, and baked goodies. Samples and education about our Aronia berries and our Aronia wine are always available.
With help from our Winemaker and knowledgeable staff, visitors get the opportunity to taste a glass, flight, or micro-blend a bottle. Bottles can be custom labeled with 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.
Mix and Taste a Personal Creation
Choose from a glass or a flight of our custom blended red, white, or rosé. With the help of our winemaker and staff, you’ll taste, 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, seal, and custom label.
Mini Blending Experience
Scared of commitment? Start with a taste of six wines, then become a Winemaker and create your very own recipe. Enjoyed by 1-2 people. We give you the option to try out the process of blending without having to take some home.
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.

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.
