The artisanal winery that has been operating out of Colorado, Ladrón Cellars, is opening its first “full service winery as well as tasting room,” according to founder and winemaker Richard Crockett. When What Now Denver talked with Crockett, we were told that there will be a “production and barrel room on site,” as well as an “indoor and outdoor tasting room.”
Richard Crockett’s passion for winemaking began in the 90s after a trip to California. His vision for Ladrón Cellars began during a period of extensive traveling as he was learning more about wine and winemaking. “It began with the belief of sharing various wine styles and varietals from specific locations in Colorado, California and Washington,” according to their official website. “We select varietals from these regions that highlight their unique climates, allowing us to produce our incredibly complex wines.”
Ladrón Cellars first tasting room will be opening hopefully by late September or early October on 11435 E Briarwood Ave in Englewood, right off E Arapahoe Road. The winery and taproom will be neighboring other businesses such as Fire Bowl Cafe, Chicago Mike’s Beef & Dogs, Bawarchi Biryani Point, Vivi Phở Arapahoe and more.
The winery will be able to host “events in the production area so that people can understand our process how we make and blend our wines,” said Richard Crockett. Apart from wine events, the space will also be “set up to do private events both in the production area and tasting room.” And what better place to host your next corporate event or Holiday party than in a beautiful tasting room or cellar?
