An unlikely location for a vineyard (1946 E 66th Ave between Franklin St and York St), on the north end of town on a slightly industrial strip. But, there's off street parking, a big tasting room for FREE, and spacious dining areas along with some outdoor al fresco style dining. You can try a few whites, several reds, some bubblies,...

We stopped for a wine-tasting after we landed in Denver and had an extra hour to kill before checking in to our vacation rental. It was a nice tasting room, and the staff was friendly and informative. We weren't hungry, so we didn't try any food. So, it was just a quick stop. If you enjoy wine tastings, it's worth... More

Some friends took me here for a birthday lunch and it was great! Extensive wine tasting with many, many wines. We were not limited on the number of samples and never felt rushed which is often the case. They pride themselves on their natural wine, but I have to say, it just didn't do it for me, maybe it is...

Balistreri prides itself on making wines the natural way; wild yeasts, minimal additions & processing made to the wine. I admire their grit to do this on a commercial scale, and I respect that. Having said that, the wines would be MUCH better if modern winery processes and procedures were used. I've made wine myself and I think I'm right... More

I have been to this winery several times. It has grown from a small tasting room in the little white house to a lovely space with a long wine tasting bar and a few tables inside and out for dining. They now have a banquet room and outdoor area for weddings. You could spend an hour tasting all the wines... More

I have been to many wineries and I am used to a limited number of samples, occasionally feeling rather rushed due to crowds and often times having to pay a fee. This visit however was none of those things. We visited on a Saturday when they were set up to host a wedding later that evening. Because of this, they... More

Good tour of small winery that produces a nice variety of wines and allows tasting of many. Unique wines and a history of one family's experience. Enjoyable and personable.

We were surprised to find this small winery that makes its wine right there in the basement. The food was excellent. We ordered our food and started our wine tasting, they came and got us when our food was ready, we finished our lunch and went back to finish our wine tasting and tour of the wine making. We came...
