Snowmelt from the heights of the mountain comes to enlarge a number of rivers and streams as: the Snake River begins his long winding trip to Idaho and Columbia River; à Yellowstone moving from north to the east to come and throw in Missouri; and the Green River flows south to join Colorado. This richness compensates rare rainfall and channeling for irrigation, and in some cases, for hydroelectric power.

Despite the small number of vineyards research done on grapes from10 years sees promise for growth potential of grapes in Wyoming; Accompanied by a hot and dry climate, viticulture have a good reason to believe in the future, between 25-30 farms are under development spread across the state along with a variety of grapes grown in the Wyoming State

When we have thought Colorado it is more than certain that the culture of the vine do not come to mind, However on these trays watered by runoff from the mountains, we have found some of the best vineyards between Mississippi River and the West Coast.

Colorado vineyards are mostly nestled on high mesas and temperate river valleys, located at an altitude between 1400 and 2400 meters, with a certain area in the county of Montezuma. The vineyards are among the highest in the world, causing hot days accompanied by cool nights, which makes them unique wine Colorado.
