The Grand Valley AVA is an American Viticultural Area located in Mesa County, Colorado, west of the city of Grand Junction. The AVA includes the agricultural area around the Grand Valley of the Colorado River. Viticulture began in the area in the late 19th century. State Governor George A. Crawford planted a convert|60|acre|ha|0 vineyard in the Grand Valley in 1890. Approximately 75% of all wineries in the state of Colorado are located in the Grand Valley AVA. Vineyards in the valley are planted at elevations as high as convert|4700|ft|m|-2 above sea level. The valley has consistent breezes that provide good air drainage, reducing the risk of frost. During the growing season, the valley has hot and dry days with lots of sunshine. Winters are mild.
