French for “little jewel,” Bijou (bee-zhoo) Creek was named by early French explorers in this region.
The seasonally dry creek meanders across the Eastern Plains of Colorado and drains into the South Platte River.
Our wine is made by time tested traditions handed down for generations complemented by modern technology.
That combination makes our wine as good as can be made from premium, high-altitude Colorado grapes.
Hot days, cool nights combined with intense sunlight make these grapes rich in color and flavor with just the right balance of acid and tannins.
Located in eastern Colorado in Greeley, after moving from Fort Morgan, Bijou Creek Winery began its commercial wine making operations in 2006.
We currently receive our grapes from vineyards in the Palisade area on the Western Slope of Colorado as well as other states to supplement our wine selection.
That area is ideal for growing vinifera or classical wine making grapes.
