Rioja - Grilled Colorado Peaches
Most people don’t know that we have the best peaches in the country in Colorado. They really scream summer; most grow on the Western Slope, where it is a bit warmer year round. In the 10 years I have lived in Colorado, especially being from Santa Barbara, I have come to appreciate the local products that make Colorado so special, and peaches in August are one of them.
