WELCOME!

OPEN EVERY SATURDAY IN APRIL, NOON-5

 

 

  

We're a family owned vineyard and boutique winery with lots of grapes to grow and crush and press.

So we hope you'll forgive us that we open only on Saturdays. Come join the fun. We'll be tasting at least a dozen wines, dry to sweet, and you can browse the shop while you're doing it.

At the Le Fuselier Winery, tasting is always free and always fun.

We do 30 to 40 wines a year and we work hard to control our prices. We see ourselves as the Village Winery and strive to maintain price points attractive to our local customers.

Here's a sample of our wines:

2012 CABERNET FRANC 
PREMIUM ESTATE GROWN WINE  $22.95                                         
    

This wine is from our best grapes, grown in blocks A and B. It is the only Fremont County Cabernet Franc and the very best example of the wine quality that can be obtained from Canon City's unique climate and soil.





 2007 CABERNET SAUVIGNON
8-YEAR-OLD ELEGANCE $15.95

Because we're a small, boutique winery we don't have to have the same economies of scale as the big guys. So we can keep a wine in its French Oak barrels for years. This is a smooth, mellow cab with the tawny color of a fine old Bordeaux.




 2012 MERLOT                         
GREAT VINTAGE SUITABLE FOR   AGING
 $14.95
                                          
  


These grapes were hand sorted into the crusher and fermented in small containers, then aged in oak barrels.



2008 OLD WORLD BLEND                  ZINFANDEL, CABERNET SAUVIGNON  & SYRAH  $13.95                      

One of our most requested wines. Delightfully different with a hint of effervescence, it’s lighter and less imposing.


2009  PINOT NOIR 
SMELLS LIKE ROSE PETALS    $15.95                                        
A Steve Rhodes Memorial Wine.

 

 2009  BARBERRA 
AN EASY DRINKING RED WINE    $15.95                                         

2014  TOM'S NORTON
OUR SIGNATURE WINE    $15.95

2014 CAYUGA WHITE  
OUR BEST SELLING SEMI-SWEET WINE      $9.95                                          
  

We love growing the Cayuga grape and this is why. It's not to sweet for dry wine drinkers. It's not to dry for sweet wine drinkers. The perfect gift wine, locally grown and locally aged.

  

2014 APPLE CRISP 
WE BET YOU'VE NEVER HAD AN APPLE LIKE THIS   $11.95                                             

Fresh from local orchards, pressed ice cold in the state prison's underground Apple Shed, this snappy wine sells itself.

            

















































Let's hear it for a
wonderful winter

A very mild winter has left us with what promises to be a bumper crop of grapes this year. We grow 13 varieties
in the vineyard and every one of them appears to have near 100% bud survival.

Cabernet Franc our best and most important grape, is starting to break bud so it will be a little vulnerable for the next few weeks while there remains a freeze risk. Riesling is swelling but is a couple weeks behind the Cab. Everything else remains buttoned up.

We had excellent years in 2011 and 2012 but poorer crops in 2013 and 2014 so we're due for a good year.

But good year or bad, we are always increasing our supply of locally grown grapes as we bring more contract growers on line. The state is beginning to recognize Canon City in general and Brookside in particular as a grape growing region of increasing importance. State Viticulturalist Dr. Horst Caspari is at the Brookside town hall this week to lead a grape pruning seminar.

Our little suburb of Canon City was one of Colorado's best grape producing areas around the turn of the century before prohibition. We are delighted to watch the restoration of this agricultural industry.

Brookside's best grapes are Cabernet Franc, Riesling, Norton, Chancellor, Cayuga White and Viognier. And don't forget those great Canon City apples that create our Apple Crisp wine, cool, crisp and refreshing.

Canon City has been growing fine wine grapes for more than 100 years. If you haven't discovered it yet, what better time?

Chardonel, Cayuga White, Traminette, Frontenac, Norton, Riesling, Cab Franc, Noirette, Corot Noir, Chancellor, de Chanauc, Seyval, Zweigelt and Vignoles.
