Free wine tasting.

Friendly staff. Wide variety of wines to choose from. Also other things to buy in the gift shop. A little on the pricey side.

The Winery is a fun place to stop and taste the awesome selection of wines. The tasting room is lovely and has a nice gift shop. If you enjoy wine, you will find it difficult to choose from the wonderful varieties. Very enjoyable and a super friendly staff!

Every time we visit Canon City, we stop in the Abbey to taste the wines. It is a great place to stop. Each year the locals provide grapes for a vintage blend representing the available fruit.

We stopped in on our way back to Denver, thank goodness the toilets outside were not locked because we'd been in the car for 3 hours! The little shop is lovely with all sorts of cool things to buy. The wine tasting is free and they also had bread with oil & balsamic, crackers and pretzels on the bench to... More

Stopped in here - very interesting. Participated in a tasting and loved all of their wines. Great store loaded with lots of items. FYI - they ship to selected states so you don't have to consider ways to get it home safely.

Were in the area and saw the signs and while I really wanted a tour of the monastery, it was closed when we stopped. The gift shop was of course open, and had a lot of different products and we got bought several books and a bottle each of their Cabernet Sauvignon and a Blackberry wine which was quite good....

I used to live in Canon City and had never gone to the winery. Recently on a business trip, I stopped in over the weekend. The staff were friendly, helpful and answered every question I asked them. If you like wine, go visit!! It's such a neat experience. And the best part - almost all of the tasting is FREE!!

This is a lovely spot. You can taste a large variety of wine- moist of it free. Very knowledgeable lady, explained in detail about the wines. Very nice gift shop, interesting and uniques items .The wines are very good. Also took a quick self guided tour of the old abbey building- very interesting.
