This Wonderful Vineyard setting on rolling hills  and views will get your painting inspiration going. There will be spectacular views the Grand Mesa, Colorado National Monument, the Bookcliff formations and local farm houses.  I am hoping we also get to add the pink peach blossoming trees which are one of the main features of East Orchard Mesa. Bring your hats, sunscreen, and bug spray just incase. Wine tasting is available for your palette delight. Restroom and water are available.
