A word from Tempranillo
Welcome to Tempranillo Restaurant, where internationally acclaimed Chef Javier Gonzalez-Bringas, along with his partner and wife Laura, offer a daily menu of drinks, tapas, dinner and lunch. Gonzalez-Bringas, a Madrid Native, combines an old-world style with a new-world flair in his signature cuisine. The name Tempranillo, itself, pays homage to one of Spain's premier grape varieties, and true to its name the restaurant features a selection of over 100 hand-chosen wines and a hearty blend of fruit filled Sangria. The atmosphere at Tempranillo is notable for its rich colors, dual fireplaces, and community gathering table-all reflecting the equally rich depth of flavors and influences which are at the heart of the restaurant's origins. "Our desire is to create a brilliantly charming place in the community where people can gather and enjoy the dance with exists between the flavors of Spain and Italy"Continued

  • "This restaurant has a diverse menu selection including full dinner selections and a huge array of wonderful tapas to choose from. Our family of 4 made the decision to share tapas, so we picked several of them -- and we made a fantastic choice!! Every one of the tapas were excellent! We even ordered more after the first round. Our waiter -- didn't get his name (had a beautiful accent) was incredibly knowledgable regarding the wine menu and so helpful with our selections of tapas -- one of the nicest and most professional waiters we have had in our travels! Needless to say, we enjoyed our dining experience at Tempranillo! Next time we are in Aspen, we will definitely drive back to Basalt to this new favorite restaurant!"

  • "Tempranillo offers an eclectic menu of both main dishes and small plates, presented in an attractive and appetizing manner. Prices are within reason for the quality and quantity of food served. The menu is definitely influenced by the owner's Spanish origins. Dishes are prepared with sometimes surprising but delicious twists. It was a treat to find this local gem in the small, charming town of Basalt, CO."

  • "Whenever we are in the area we visit this place. Everything about it is outstanding. I especially love the Spanish ham and sausages, which are presented in a great variety of ways. We were there after Christmas and there were many large groups including ours. Staff did an excellent job of keeping up with everyone. Staff is very knowledgeable about the great variety of food and wine available. As Arnold said, I'll be Bach."
