About Us

Our Story


Purgatory Cellars Winery was founded in 2014 by winemakers from Croatia with an absolute passion for making high quality wines, and a sincere love of Colorado and Colorado grapes. Their dream is to share the joy and happiness of fine wine in a European setting with their community and members.

Around 90% of the grapes used at the winery come from hand selected Colorado growers.  Our award winning wines are hand crafted - beginning with crushing and pressing the grapes, through fermentation, aging, and bottling at the Parker, CO. Please join us at the winery or at any of our tasting rooms!

Our Uniqueness


Using Georgian Amphora (Qvevri) clay pot 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 because of the incredible flavors this process can produce. 

Currently, there are only a  handful of wineries (we only know of 3) in the United States utilizing this method for significant production. 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. It is an incredible experience to try these wines. All our amphora are onsite, so you can see them for yourselves!
