graphicThe majestic valleys of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains are blessed with warm days, cool nights and low humidity - conditions perfect for the cultivation of wine grapes with the complex character and chemistry required to produce award-winning wines.

Winemaking began on Colorado’s Western Slope more than a century ago. With the advent of Prohibition, however, the early vineyards were uprooted and replaced with orchards. Modern vineyards featuring the world’s classic wine-grape varieties have been reestablished in the area’s fertile climes, and once again the art of winemaking is flourishing in Colorado.

Today, Colorado’s vintners enjoy a well-earned reputation for producing a wide variety of premium wines. From rich Chardonnays to robust Merlots to wines made from cherries, peaches, plums and honey, Colorado wines consistently win top national and international awards for their quality.

Vineyards in Colorado are mostly nestled in the temperate, high elevation Grand Valley and the Valley of the North Fork of the Gunnison River. There are seven of these fine wineries located in the Palisade area.

We invite you to visit Colorado’s magnificent wine country, tour our wineries and sample our award- winning wines. The complimentary tours and tastings are friendly and informative and we welcome the entire family. Visit us soon. It’s the perfect way to spend a Colorado day!
