"Noble Riot is the definition of grunge meets class. Ever-changing menu of honest wines, incredibly friendly and knowledgeable staff, and the best fried chicken in Denver. (I'm also a little biased because I used to work as a table somm here.)" - Corey Braccialini
Sunday Vinyl - 1803 16th St Mall, Denver, CO 80202
- Dine-in and takeaway
"I love Sunday vinyl because they have an amazingly knowledgeable team. They get excited to talk to people that are also excited about wine. They also work to make their guests feel comfortable and want to talk about wine all night long. Their wine list is extensive with a ton of natural wine producers. Additionally, their somm and GM are both some pretty badass ladies!!" - Katie Schaenzer

"Don't sleep on Denver's own natural winery with a great tasting room right in town. Grapes are bought from the Western Slope of CO and made without sulfur, fining, or filtering in Denver. Especially exciting is Balistreri's take on their whites, all of which are always intensely skin fermented. Delicious, complex, challenging wines that are local/regional too!" - Peter Szilagyi
