About Us

Our Story

First batch of wine, 9000 bottles, were produced in 2014. 

2015- we established the Purgatory Cellars Winery in Parker, Colorado (Douglas County). Grapes are purchased mainly in Colorado, some grape varietals in New Mexico. We enriched the wine spectrum in Colorado, as well as in the U.S. by introducing amphora wine making technique, i.e. producing wines in amphorae, clay pots hardly present technique in this part of the world.




Coming Soon: Wine tasting room in Highlands Ranch, CO.

Uniqueness

The usage of Georgian Amphora (Qvevri) containers to store and ferment wines is a tradition in winemaking dating back to 6th century, B.C. Today this ancient technology is  making a comeback among brewers and vintners throughout the world, mostly in Europe and the Middle East. 


Currently, there are only a  handful of wineries in the United States utilizing this method. Purgatory Cellars is proud to be the first winery in Colorado to utilize  this ancient method and introduce our Amphora-aged wines. Wines made in  Amphorae show complexity and soft tannins  on the pallet, and long  maceration period (up to 9 months) on the skin causes darker color so  they are called Orange Wines.
