We alternate between the US and Europe for our ski vacations and generally the food is so much better in France and Italy than it is in the US. They do just love their food over there. However, Alpino Vino is the exception. Perched near the top of the mountain it is a beautiful little slice of Italy in Colorado.... More

Terrific food and unique ambience that reminds me of LeChamonix! It's pricy as is everything in Telluride but worth a visit at least one day while skiing!

This little place at the top of the mountain delivers a limited menu, exquisitely prepared with a European flair. We had the tomato basil (?) soup of the day - a small cup instead of a bowl - and a large plate of cured meats and cheeses. The presentation was exceptional, but the tastes even better. Prosciutto and salamis were... More

we skied up for lunch on a big blue sunny day. The views were outstanding but equally outstanding was the food. We had the tomato soup and grilled cheese and a glass of red wine. Excellent experience with a very professional staff.

Alpino Vino is a tricked out version of a mountain hut, all stone and wood, similar to the structures that dot the mountainsides in Alpine resorts like Megeve and Chamonix. The smiles that greeted us when we walked through the door were just as warm as the fire crackling away in the fireplace – and the vibe, which, despite the... More

Alpino Vino was a pleasant break from the slopes. They were very busy but the service was very good. Our waiter was attentive and even had some fun with us when we asked to get our picture taken - he had a great attitude. The seating hostess was such a hard worked that day! She was directing foot traffic, cleaning... More

A magical evening... indeed. We went to Alpino Vino for a celebration dinner in December 2015. It was an absolute delight. You meet you special transportation - a snow cat!, in the lobby of All Reds, and head up the mountain. When you arrive at Alpino Vino about 15 minutes or so later, you're greated by a waiter with a... More

Description
Originally a private retreat built on a historic mining claim, this new addition to Telluride’s award-winning restaurants is a quaint European hütte perched near the top of Gold Hill.With hand-hewn beams and furniture crafted from reclaimed wine barrels, Alpino Vino provides a high alpine ambience and is reminiscent of restaurants found throughout the Dolomites of Northern Italy. Inside, a warm and inviting atmosphere, complete with a wood burning fireplace, stone floors and exposed wood beams, provides a perfect retreat from the slopes.Situated at 11,966’, Alpino Vino offers fantastic views of the Wilson Range. The expansive multi-tiered deck is a truly unique spot to enjoy a glass of wine with its European teak furniture, coveted daybed and comfortable sheepskin throws. An outdoor wine bar offers a spectacular setting for a midday escape.To visit Alpino Vino during the ski season, take Gold Hill Express (Lift 14) and turn left off the lift to ski down See Forever to our front door.Come enjoy the unique experience that is Alpino Vino!
