Northern Colorado is known for its beer but some places have a wine selection that's not too shabby either.

Wine Spectator released its annual restaurant awards last month. There were seven Northern Colorado restaurants listed. Nearly 3,800 restaurants around the country were honored.

It's my mission to visit all seven of these places.
