We will begin each wine blending session with a short discussion about why Continental Divide Winery blends many of our wines and how participants can use this experience to custom craft their own unique wine blend that is perfectly mated to their individual palette. You will then engage in a tasting of four different pure varietal red wines. As we taste each wine, the group will discuss each wine and analyze its flavor, aroma, body, tannins, and mouth feel. You will then use our authentic vintner equipment to experiment with blending the four wines in different percentages until you find a blend formula that you love. Think of this as high school chemistry with wine! Once each participant decides on their unique blend formula, our staff will help you create a bottle of your individual custom wine blend which you will take home as a souvenir of your experience. The overall experience will last approximately two hours.
Snacks are not included , but we are located next door to the Breckenridge Cheese Shop offers custom cheese platters.

I am the founder and Chief Amazement Officer of Continental Divide Winery, the highest altitude winery in the world. Our small team is passionate about creating premium quality hand-crafted wines using our unique high alpine location to minimize oxygen exposure to bring out the true flavors of each grape. Our award winning blending experiences are hosted by either myself or our senior tasting room host and winemaking assistant Andy Roberts. Andy is a key member of our winemaking team, has worked the last two harvests in our winemaking facility, and is our senior wine blending instructor.
The experience will take place in a private reserved section of our winery tasting room. Guests will be seated at a large table adjacent to our fireplace for this intimate and interactive experience.
