Once you step inside, you will quickly realize that this small boutique winery serves up a lot more than a glass of wine. Here are some of the best things you can do during a visit at Four Leaves Winery:
Sample Wine from Around the World
Unlike most vineyards and wineries, Four Leaves Winery doesn’t limit itself to only producing wines from grapes that are native to their region. Instead, Dean, the owner and winemaker at Four Leaves, creates a wide assortment of wines from grapes that are imported from all over the world. Once the grapes arrive at Four Leaves Winery, Dean and his team ferment, blend, and bottle all of their wines in house. When you visit Four Leaves, you can taste an assortment of different wines including red wine, white wine, and fruit and dessert wines.
Create Your Own Wine
At Four Leaves Winery, not only can you tour the fully-equipped wine making facility on site, you can use it! True wine enthusiasts will delight in the Make Your Own Wine program that Four Leaves Winery offers its visitors. With the help of the winery’s expert winemakers, you will sample house wine, make notes about your palate preferences, and then make a totally customized wine just for your. Four to six months later, Four Leaves Winery will ship to you the 28 bottles of wine your batch produced!
Design Personalized Wine Bottle Labels
To complete your custom made wine experience, Four Leaves Winery will also let you design a personalized wine bottle label to match! This often serves as a unique memento when celebrating a wedding, birthday, or anniversary, but can also be a fun way to stake your claim to the special wine you created. Whatever your reasoning, Four Leaves Winery will help you design a personalized wine bottle label that is perfect for you.
Meet Max, The Winery Mascot
After a long day of sightseeing in historic downtown Durango, Four Leaves Winery is the perfect place to go for a quick “pick me up.” The kind and friendly staff will greet you with a warm welcome, and if you’re lucky, you may meet Max, the winery mascot. Max is a small, white Chihuahua who is almost always at the winery, eager to greet guests as they arrive. Often times, you will find him curled up on the lap of another patron. As you make friends, order wine, and get a snack or two from the appetizer menu, you will quickly recover from the most active of days in Durango.
