Carboy Winery, brainchild of restauranteurs Craig Jones, Gabriel Aragon, and Eric Hyatt, will open on August 25 at 6885 South Santa Fe Drive in Littleton. Set in geographical proximity to the mammoth Breckenridge Brewery, Carboy describes itself as an urban winery that offers a signature collection of wines, both bottled and on tap, alongside a menu of small plates, curated by chef Scott Hybbeneth.
The group behind Carboy owns and operates other restaurants, including Angelo's Taverna, currently located on 6th Avenue in Denver. A second location of the Italian concept will emerge in a 10,000 square foot space, adjacent to the upcoming winery.
"After two years of researching, we narrowed our search to Littleton for the Carboy Winery location," co-owner Gabriel Aragon shared. "With the booming success of the Colorado craft beer and spirit industry and the advent of other urban wineries, a seed was planted to create a Colorado Urban winery adjacent to the new Angelo's. We will source, blend, and age our own wine, and sell it by the same method commonly practiced by crafted brews, through a tap system and glass growler, or Carboy. Patrons will be able to come back again and fill up on any of our tap wines," he added.
When it opens, Carboy will serve Sunday through Tuesday from 2 to 10 p.m. and Wednesday through Saturday from 2 to 11 p.m. with two happy hours every day.
