Founded in 2017, The Storm Cellar is a collaborative vision between sommeliers Jayme Henderson and Steve Steese. The Storm Cellar is a boutique winery based at the historic Redstone Vineyard in Hotchkiss, Colorado, which produces high-elevation, aromatic white wines and rosé. The Redstone Vineyard had been conventionally farmed for decades, but since purchasing the property, Jayme and Steve have begun the shift towards more conscientious, organic farming. They currently have 16 planted acres of grapevines, they planted the first grafted vines in the valley in 2017, and they have plans for at least 1,000 new plants a year until the 23-acre vineyard is filled. They are releasing their first vintage this summer of 2019. They produced seven different wines under The Storm Cellar label – Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Dry Riesling, Riesling (off-dry), Reserve Riesling (sweet), a rosé of Pinot Noir, and a rosé of Pinot Gris. They have already begun initial phases of construction on their new winery facility with plans for completion before the 2020 season.
