Our Story

The OBC Wine Project

Urban Winemaking

We’re bringing wine country to small town Colorado. The OBC Wine Project is committed to handcrafting premium wine right here at our winery in Fort Collins. With thirty years of fermentation experience on the beer side of our operation – Odell Brewing – co-workers were inspired to start a winery in 2020. We asked Travis Green, who had built and operated his own vineyard and winery for 10 years, to join as a co-worker and Odell’s first winemaker. The 2025 harvest will be his 16th vintage. Genevieve Swartz started assisting Travis in the cellar starting with the 2022 vintage.

Our urban winery sources grapes from independent growers in Washington, Oregon and Colorado, we then crush, ferment and package right here in Fort Collins. We’re crafting wines that satisfy our independent spirit and bold curiosity. Come sip with us!

Visit the Winery (right next to Odell Brewing!)

Our wine bar and gorgeous patio offers pours from our bottles, cans and draft wines. Enjoy wine by the flight, glass or bottle. Some of our small batch wines are only available at the taproom, so be sure to check back for new releases. And, if you happen to be in the mood for an award-winning beer, just walk over to Odell Brewing and grab a pint. You can enjoy it right alongside our wines in our shared patio.

Grapes from Washington, Oregon & Colorado

We’re in search of fruit that is full of flavor and expresses its terroir, whether that’s well known vitis vinifera like Pinot Gris or cold-hardy hybrid varietals like Aromella. Each harvest, our winemaking team carefully plans, selects, and sources the highest quality grapes before they make the trek to our winery. Our vineyard-partners in Grand Valley, Colorado, Willamette Valley, Oregon, and Columbia Valley, Washington are always checking the vineyards for our ideal specifications.

Wines for wherever your palate takes you

Yes, we put wine in a can. We’re a big fan of cans, we’ve been using them for our world-class beer for years! Cans are air-tight, light proof, crushable, recyclable, park-ready and picnic-ready, what more could you want? Fun fact: one of our 355ml cans are equivalent to two generous glasses.

Looking for the perfect bottle for your next wine night? Explore classics like Cabernet Sauvignon as well as our more experimental side with wines like our Skin Contact Pinot Gris.

Find our wines by the bottle, can, or glass at our Fort Collins Winery Taproom or throughout Colorado.
