There are wineries in all 50 states, but there’s a good chance that California comes to mind when you think of the epicenter of wine and wine culture in the US. When it comes to wine history, however, people may soon start looking to Colorado.
Zoning and logistics for a museum of wine was recently discussed in Palisade, Colorado, that will house the largest wine artifact collection in North America, the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports. Scott High, the owner of Colterris Winery in the Centennial State’s small-but-growing wine region, proposed the museum. High and his wife Theresa would also contribute the artifacts to be shown from their own collection, including centuries-old wine bottles and more than 18,000 wine-related objects.
