Founded in 2017, The Storm Cellar is a boutique winery based at the Redstone Vineyard in Hotchkiss, Colorado, which produces high-quality, high-elevation, aromatic white and rosé wines, farmed and crafted by the hands of former Denver sommeliers, Jayme Henderson and Steve Steese. The Storm Cellar aims to showcase the attributes of this extreme vineyard site within its wines, to help bring the West Elks AVA into the national wine spotlight, and to become a premier destination for an elevated, Colorado wine experience.

Together, Steve and Jayme were selected as members of the 2019, 2020, and 2021 Colorado FIVE team in recognition of their roles as leaders of the Denver culinary and beverage scene and for their work in promoting Colorado wine. The Storm Cellar was featured in a cover story for the weekend edition of The Wall Street Journal this past November, highlighted in the March issue of Wine Spectator, and  chosen by the editors of Colorado’s 5280 Magazine as Best Winery in their 2019 “Top of the Town” awards. All seven wines from their inaugural 2018 vintage earned medals silver or higher in the 2019 Colorado Governor’s Cup, with two of their Rieslings winning double gold medals and chosen for the Governor’s Cup Collection.
