Legatum – Latin for legacy – the vineyard and winery is a dream of a lifetime for us and has been a labor of love, family and history. Designed, built and staffed by our family, we have tried to bring the sense of history and family into every nook and cranny. The tasting room is a converted pole barn, and the front face of the tasting room and bar inside are made of barn wood from Rich’s family’s 110-year-old barn in Nebraska. What started as a hobby is now a full-fledged business.
We began looking for property, vineyards and wineries over a decade ago on the Western Slope, then we met David and Karin Fuselier and ended up purchasing half of their vineyard at Spring Creek Vineyards, and now we share a driveway and our operations run side by side. We are the third winery and newest boutique winery in the area. Opening Nov 2016, we are pleased to say that we now have nearly 20 wines to select from.
We are open each Saturday from noon to 5pm year round. People come here to taste the wine but end up having a great afternoon, finding themselves really relaxing on the patio while the kids play on the playground. We’re into making people happy. It’s more of an experience than just buying wine.
It is our hope that we will leave a legacy in our community and for our children and grandchildren that will enrich the lives of many. Our dream is that this will be a place that will leave its mark on your heart too. We hope you will become a part of our family/community.
