Front Range Backyard Viticulture

List of Varieties

At Stonebridge farm we have a test vineyard of about 80 vines to determine which of the hybrid varieties are suited to the front range of Colorado.  We are located just east of Lyons on Hwy 66. This close to the foothills we need varieties that will ripen early in a shorter growing season than even east Boulder County.

The oldest part of the vineyard was established in 2002.

Reds (six vines each):

  • Frontenac
  • St Croix
  • Leon Millot
  • Oberlin Noir

Whites (six vines each):

  • Seval Blanc
  • Cayuga
  • LaCrosse
  • Orion

Over the next several years we’ve added varieties to the vineyard that are not yet producing so I can’t comment on the wines.

Additional Reds:

  • Marquette
  • Chambourcin
  • Chancellor
  • Corot Noir
  • DeChaunac
  • Arandell

Additional Whites:

  • Esprit
  • Frontenac Girs
  • Brianna
  • Louise Swenson
  • Frontenac Blanc
