Honestly very disappointing. The atmosphere was underwhelming and the servers were preoccupied with their friends. We sat outdoors and it was very dark some lighting and music would be nice to step up the atmosphere.

First of really nothing to complain about still I was under the impression that we could order food directly from the winery and not have to go get ourselves. Also I felt that we were left one our own to determine what we were tasting. There wasn’t a lot of information given which is part of the fun of doing the tasting and that may be because we were sitting outside but still some genuine follow up about our experience would have been nice. Overall all though not a horrible way to spend an hour in Breckenridge.

Not to confuse you, but CDW is a locally owned winery and tasting room. Jeffrey and Anna Maltzman come from CA with decades of wine making experience. Wonderful place, nice staff. This is for wine tasting, special wine blending and other events. Perfect to go to after a nice hike in the summer or skiing in the winter. They will be expanding their facilities in November. Yea! The wine is excellent. You then order food easily from next door BOLD or Quandary Grille or other easy places. Outside seating even in winter with gas heaters.

Love the place and also check into being a Club member. Dwight Mikulis, local resident of Breck.

No food was offered. Maybe some crackers?
The service was minimal. All tastings brought at the sane time. Hard to remember each individual wine.

I feel the location has gone downhill as far as customer service. We had a reservation and the host originally wanted to seat us in the direct sun although the tables in the shade were available. When I requested one of the numerous ones in the shade (a simple switch of reserved tables-to my knowledge, reserving shaded tables was not a choice on Open Table), she made us feel like it was a huge deal and we felt like she had a bit of a bad attitude about it. Another disappointment was having to drink our wine out of plastic cups, with no explanation, although some of the outdoor tables had glass. I was singing the praises of the winery before our visit and selling the club I was a part of for several years, but none of us were impressed. I know there are challenges with COVID and I appreciate everything they are doing to keep us safe, but all of this was avoidable.

Do not book at 630. The place closed at 7. We spent 100$ and had to take the wine to go. We felt bad that it was only staffed by one girl, but we were very excited to spend the evening and unfortunately were not able to do so

The wines are good. They have a combination of California and Colorado wines. We did the wine flights. One red and one of the premium. It is definitely a flight and not a tasting where they talk about the wines and give you some background on them. If you buy two bottles the tasting is free. We were able to ship ours back home and the price of shipping was the price of the tasting so it was like free shipping. They don’t have any food but we brought in the charcuterie board from the restaurant across the court which was delicious!

Great outside seating. All the staff was attentive and friendly. There wasn’t a big selection but the wines we tasted were good. It was a little pricey but it’s a winery in Breck so as expected. They didn’t have any food selection.

Continental Divide is always fun to visit and have a glass or two, or bottle of wine...even during COVID! We continue to sit outside until we are fully vaccinated and the fire tables are great. We even sat in a snowstorm the other night and looked like snowpeople when we left 🤣. Be sure to bring a blanket if you do sit outside so you can stay awhile.
Wines are tasty and fine!

My husband and I had a reservation for a snowy evening. A lot of people arrived at the same time, there was only one hostess, and quite a few tables were still set with used tasting glasses. With limited reservation times due to COVID I was disappointed that it took a bit of time to get a table (even tho we had a reservation), and once we had a table it was more than 15 minutes before she could come to the table to take an order; as she was pouring To-Go wine for walk ins (that was frustrating).
The wine was okay; the 3 reds I tried were all more dry than I prefer. I was hoping to try “Colorado” wine, but most of the vineyards featured were from CA...It makes sense, but a little disappointing not to be able to try something new or different.
Overall, I wasn’t excited about the experience. Although the hostess was kind enough to make a substitution in the flight and was nice.

It was a fun experience! The only complaint, by the time we were seated and served, we maybe had 40 min for tastings. Our reservation was for an hour inside, which wasn’t enough time. They accommodated our table outside with a fire pit table and had a blast! Andy was informative and fun! Visiting the store is our annual tradition and plan to come up again on the Spring/Summer timeframe.

Great experience! Very popular, so reservations are usually needed. Outside fire table seating is great, and you can pop over to the cheese store to get a fantastic charcuterie tray to go with the wine. If the fire table is on, you might need to relocate your wine away from the heat, but ambiance is great. Dog friendly too!

We had several of the wine flights and everyone was happy with each of the wines. The outdoor seating was a little bit of a challenge on a cold night, but the firepit table is a good option for when there is no space inside for seating. The wine server was really knowledgeable and helpful with info about the wines, as well. Great experience!

This is not a restaurant. They do not serve food. You can walk across the plaza and order food to go and then return 30 minutes later to pick it up. They allow you to eat that food in their storefront winery. Agen, I assume all Open Table vendors are restaurants, this shop should not be on your website.

Good for the wine, but it was very slow. I felt bad for our waitress because she was clearly the only person working when we were there and managing several tables both inside and out. She was kind and polite and gave us big pours, and we were understanding, but the service was underwhelming nonetheless. Considering that we had vouchers for free wine flights, I was surprised that our bill ended up as high as it did.

They do not serve food. The service and wines are friendly and plentiful. Many interesting varietals to try and buy. Best wine club terms I’ve ever seen. Fire tables are gorgeous, but don’t provide a lot of warmth so bundle up if it’s cold. As long as you dress warm, tasting/drinking wines in the snow at 10k+ feet is a treat! Looking forward to our coming wines.

You could not ask for a better location with personal fire tables. You can even order carryout from Bold Restaurant and eat at your table. We are also wine club members, and the personal perks are worth it.
