Across the moon-like landscape of the Four Corners region, it’s difficult to anticipate the beautiful oasis of McElmo Canyon which is home to two unique vinters: Guy Drew Vineyards and Sutcliffe Vineyards. Both wineries are located near the Canyons of the Ancients National Monument.
If a tall, cold beer is more your style, stop by the Main Street Brewery, WildEdge Brewing Collective or J. Fargos in Cortez, the Dolores River Brewery in downtown Dolores, or The Mancos Brewing Company in the heart of Mancos for a freshly brewed hand-crafted ale, lager or seasonal beer. Venture off Grand Avenue in downtown Mancos any Friday between 5 and 10 p.m. to enjoy Ian’s Alley Artisanal Rum. Whatever glass you prefer to raise, Mesa Verde Country has something for everyone.
