Categories: Fine Wines, Italian Delicacies

Closed for the season

Alpino Vino, the highest elevation fine-dining restaurant in North America at 11,966 feet, is an exclusive, yet quaint European hütte offering leisurely lunches and evening dining experiences like no other! Ski-in during the day or travel via an enclosed snow-coach at night to peruse a world class wine list and enjoy Chef Nicola Peccedis Italian Alpine gourmet comfort food. Alpino Vino offers fantastic views of the Wilson Range with an appropriately Italian alps themed al a carte lunch menu and five-course dinner menu, including optional wine pairing. The exterior expansive multi-tiered deck with its European teak furniture, coveted daybed and comfortable sheepskin throws is truly a unique spot to celebrate the day over a glass of wine, beer or digestif in a comfortable, yet charmingly rustic outdoor setting. Inside, hand-hewn beams, furniture crafted from reclaimed wine barrels, exposed wood beams, stone floors, and wood-burning fireplace provide a high alpine ambiance reminiscent of restaurants found throughout the Dolomites of Northern Italy. Originally a private retreat built on a historic mining claim, Alpino Vino is a cornerstone of Telluride's most award-winning restaurants!


Take Gold Hill Express (Lift 14) and turn left off the lift to ski down See Forever to the front door during the day or make a reservation for the evening and ride Alpino Vino's heated snow coach from the top of the Gondola to the front door of Alpino Vino, just meet at Allred’s lobby 15 minutes before your seating to hop aboard!
