Welcome to Legacy Vineyards! Our story began in 2005 as we were driving through Colorado on our way to Las Vegas, NV. Along the way, Michael our founder and wine maker, spotted a winery just off of I-70 in Palisade, CO. Michael and his wife, Dee, stopped off at the winery and their eyes were opened to the beautiful Colorado wine country. Michael’s curiosity and passion continued to grow over the years, enough so that he decided he would start growing his own grapes right in his backyard. As he continued to grow his vines over the years he also began experimenting with the wine making process and ultimately decided it was time to pursue his education so that he could make great wine. He began his wine education at Texas Tech and received certification in Enology and Viticulture. During this time period Michael had a chance meeting with Deb and Dean of DD Ranch in Firestone, CO. Their shared love of wine led to a unique partnership that allowed Michael the opportunity to begin growing Legacy’s vineyard. Today we have six acres on DD Ranch that house the 2,000+ vines that are used to produce Legacy Vineyard’s Colorado proud wines. In 2014, Michael and his family decided to make a bigger committment and pursue opening what is now known as Legacy Vineyard’s Winery and Tasting Room. Michael continues to manage the vineyard in Firestone as well as managing production and wine making at Legacy’s winery.
