Tempranillo’s Heated Patio!

heated patio

We are thrilled to announce that Tempranillo’s heated patio is open for nightly dinner service! We want our clients to feel comfortable and safe, and so we’ve created a patio heating system that is as enjoyable in the Winter as it is in the Summer. When you make a reservation, please request seating on the heated patio. 

What can you expect with heated patio dining? 

Tempranillo’s patio is now divided into two sections, each of which features high-tech infrared heaters, socially-distanced tables, and soft walls that allow for fresh air circulation.

What is an infrared heated patio?

Well, you know how the Colorado sun warms you up even if it’s 10 degrees outside? That is the effect of infrared heat! These heaters have been installed on the patio ceiling, and provide smaller temperature differentials than your typical gas heater (meaning everyone is warm, not just the lucky one sitting under the heater). Another benefit of infrared patio heaters is there is far less movement of air, which means that particles do not circulate around the room as they do with a convection heater. 

Why install patio heaters now?

We have been trying to heat our patio for months, but the outdoor heating industry has been backed up serving the many restaurants in the area. We also have been hearing the increased request for outdoor dining year-round. Tempranillo Restaurant is known for the “Best Outdoor Dining” in the Roaring Fork Valley in the Summer time, and it is our intention to maintain that title in the Winter as well! 
We encourage you to make a reservation on OpenTable, or call us at (970) 927-3342, so we may set a table for you! Of course, take out is always an option, including bottles of organic wine, cocktails, and our full menu.

Wishing you health and wellness, community and support.

¡Hasta Pronto!

A reminder that masks are required by Eagle county until you are seated at your table, and then you are free to remove your mask and simply enjoy yourself. You are required to wear a mask any time you move from your table. Our team will always wear their masks for your added safety. Every dish, table, napkin, is sanitized (as always!).
