The knowledgeable vintners at D’Vine Wine Denver - Home of Wild Women Wines ferment top-quality California grapes in-house to handcraft their eponymous fleet of more than 17 reds and whites. During a tasting outing, couples gather around a reserved table as a dedicated server equips each with five samples of any wines currently in stock and not busy posing for still-life paintings. Sippers might opt for the centennial red, a high-tannin varietal that tucks oak undertones beneath strong plum flavors, or the crisp sauvignon blanc, whose apricot and pineapple notes pair well with fish, pasta, and light cheeses. Summit Sunset, the winery’s take on a classic white zinfandel, combines the tartness of grapefruit with the scenic photo ops of a mountain peak. After sampling the lineup, patrons each imbibe a full glass of their favorite wine, and pairs take home a full bottle of any available varietal to share. An enlightening tour of the winery’s facilities bolsters the oenophile odyssey.
Sampling events occur in the Tuscan-themed tasting room, where wine bottles dangle above marigold walls and lush green ivy slinks across brick embellishments. Though not covered by today’s Groupon, D’Vine Wine Denver - Home of Wild Women Wines helps aspiring vintners create their own custom blends replete with personalized labels and bottles made with glass from the windows of their childhood homes.
Wild Women Wine
The vintners at Wild Women Wine make it their mission to throw back the curtain on the mysteries of the winemaking process. The team invites visitors to concoct a personal wine batch of their own, modifying favorite house varietals with touches of oak, tannin, spice and other flavors. Each custom wine culminates in a bottling party, where the wine auteur, along with family and friends, can bottle, cork and label their bottles instead of just drinking it out of a communal bucket like usual.
For less hands-on pours, the boutique winery's wine list hosts a vast array of already-bottled varietals. Wines range from dry reds and whites, sweet wines, and a fortified dessert port.
