Purgatory Cellars

Purgatory Cellars Owner Marko Copic originates from Jastrebarsko, Croatia and brings 20 years of “Old World” and Mediterranean style wine making experience to Colorado, combining them with his modern wine making techniques to offer a vastly different wine tasting experience to the Colorado viticultural scene. Purgatory Cellars works hard to source most of their grapes from Colorado and to exploit the qualities of Colorado’s unique climate and significant elevation features. Purgatory Cellars is working to bring specific qualities of grapes from the Western Slopes and Four Corners regions of Colorado to the Front Range. Purgatory Cellars is making and aging wine in Amphora containers with their origin going back about 5,000 years in ancient Greek and Roman history when Amphorae were used in the preservation and transportation of various products both liquid and dry, but mainly for wine making. The Amphorae are made from special clay in the country of Georgia and infused with bees wax and then baked in a wood fired kiln until the bees wax is completely infused in the pot. This wine making technique provides flavors and characteristics different from other aging methods. Amphora production will be about 3,000 liters per year including at least 5 different varietals.
