In 1996 Clyde’s wife, June, inherited some land on North Washington Street. Clyde decided to plant grapevines in this plot of land, and, of course, once you have planted grapes, you then need a winery. The Spero Vineyard was just north of another vineyard at the corner of 66th and Washington. It was just next to J & J Storage.
Although it was much smaller than the vineyards on the Western slope, it was at least convenient for Denverites to visit and get a feel for the viticultural process. The first harvest for the vineyard was the fall of the millennium (i.e. 2000), an auspicious date indeed, for the beginning of a new venture. Unfortunately, the vineyard no longer exists, but it was a fun experiment while it lasted.
