Anyone living or visiting Park City knows it has stunning views, a range of activities to suit every member of your family regardless of their age, and some of the best food you’ve ever tasted. But did you know that Park City is also a wine aficionados paradise? Yes, the renowned mountain town also offers an array of wine selections that are the perfect complement to exceptional, all served in a relaxed surrounding. For the sommeliers of the world, you’ll be pleased to learn that Park City can offer even the most discerning gourmand a journey into a world of flavors and textures. Utah has come a long way since the days of prohibition, including wineries in the Park City region!
Cognition Winery is the only one of its type in Park City and is the creation of Dennis Romankowski. After several years of studying winemaking in both Italy and France, Dennis returned home to Park City to establish a vineyard here – at an elevation of 7,000 feet. This intention might seem impossible to anyone else, but Dennis was determined. Suffice it to say he was successful, but the only way to truly appreciate what Dennis and his wife Gina have achieved here is to sample the wines themselves, which can be done by appointment.
