Get your feet into grape-stomping shape, Bigsby’s Folly has an official opening date.
The River North urban winery will welcome its first customers on June 16.
Instead of having people go to Napa, Sonoma and Willamette valleys on the West Coast, the [owners] want to work with growers and vintners there and bring the grapes and bottles to Colorado. The couple also plans work growers on the Western Slope to have wines that are fully Colorado.
And the big attraction: Customers can make their own wines — from the crushing, mashing and blending to the bottling and labeling.
The first 50 customers on opening day will get free wine growlers. (Clarification: The growler is free, but you have to pay for the wine that goes in it.)
Hours are 4 to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 2 to 11 p.m. Friday, noon to 11 p.m. Saturday and noon to 8 p.m. Sunday.
