Aspen Peak Cellars continues work on rebuilding their business that was destroyed when a semi-truck drove through it in September. Marcel and Julie Flukiger are still dealing with insurance and legal issues before the new building can be built.

The Flukigers are hopeful that the winery will be rebuilt by the end of summer in the original location and are working hard with Park County government and their insurance company to make that happen.

In the meantime the Flukigers have taken out space in the back room of the Sasquatch Outpost/Platte River Outfitters building in downtown Bailey.

The new tasting room will debut this Friday and will be open all summer on weekends. The tasting room will have samples of the winery’s award winning wines as well as by the glass or bottle purchases available.

The tasting room will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. starting Friday, May 5, until the end of August.

In the next week or so Aspen Peak hopes to open a small outside patio area for people to enjoy their glass of wine.

The community has been very supportive throughout their rebuilding and hopefully everyone will come and visit the new tasting room.

The tasting room is located at 149 Main Street in downtown Bailey.
