You may have enjoyed a glass of Boulder Beer  at some point. So how about a glass of Boulder wine? That might be possible if the efforts of a cooperative are successful at LaGazza Vineyard & Estates. The 40-acre vineyard aims to be Boulder County's first commercial venture, according to the Daily Camera , which writes that members will begin planting their first seeds this fall in the hopes of harvesting the first sweet grapes by 2013. But there are risks: It costs $2,000 to $3,000 an acre to maintain a vineyard, and Boulder has comparatively unpredictable weather, difficult soil, and a shorter growing season. Of course, Colorado's Western Slope has been making vino for years, as 5280  noted last year, identifying a number of viticultural stars. Meanwhile, Hanson's Jack Rabbit Hill, a small agricultural town outside Hotchkiss, was recently certified as "biodynamic"--a distinction given to just 50 winemakers across the country and a cut above certified organic, according to Summit Daily News . The Vail Daily , on the other hand, takes a look at Larkspur's Wine University in Vail, where studies in France's "Holy Grail" of wine are offered.
