Open for Winter 2015-16.
Alpino Vino is a quaint European hütte offering a nighttime dining experience like no other at the highest elevation fine-dining restaurant in North America at 11,966 feet. Guests travel via an enclosed Snow-Coach to Alpino Vino near the top of Gold Hill, where they will enjoy fantastic views of the Wilson Range as they enjoy a five-course Italian themed menu with an optional wine pairing. 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.
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. Originally a private retreat built on a historic mining claim, Alpino Vino is a cornerstone of Telluride's award-winning restaurants. Guests must be a minimum 21 years of age to attend the nighttime experience.
To visit Alpino Vino during the day, take Gold Hill Express (Lift 14) and turn left off the lift to ski down See Forever to our front door. At night, make a reservation through the Culinary Concierge, and ride Alpino Vino's enclosed Snow-Coach from the top of the Gondola to the front door of Alpino Vino. Alpino Vino is closed for the Summer season and is open for reservations in the Winter.
Alpino Vino is available in the Winter for private nighttime events for groups and families. Enjoy an evening snowcat ride up to 11,966 feet and cozy up by our warm fire for a 5 course delectable meal. With a seating capacity of 28 people indoors, Alpino Vino is the perfect location to host your small private event.
