I am from Michigan. My husband and were driving through while on vacation When I saw the road side advertisements. It was a pleasant stop. Did some wine tasting and bought a case to take home for souvenir gifts. Especially love the wine made from local grape donations. What a great way to keep the community involved.

My husband and I had a couple of hours between zip-lining and our dinner reservation so we decided to stop here for a bit. Got to taste nearly all of the wines they offer free of charge. Found a couple that we liked and bought a bottle of each to bring home. The staff was all very friendly and knowledgeable... More

Visited The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey in Canon City, CO. Had an outstanding wine tasting session, which was free of charge and we got to sample a number of their wines. Very reasonable priced on their wines as well. Ladies explained the history of the winery and all about the process they go through and where the majority of... More

We loved visiting the Wine Festival in September 2014. We were NOT able to purchase a glass of wine and it was very expensive for a 1-oz drop of wine. Then we found out, the exact same wine, made by Abbey at another liquor store is cheaper than buying it at Abbey, so from now on, we'll just buy their... More

Fun taste testing. Wine is made locally but grapes grown elsewhere. No monks working there but servers were knowledgeable on the wines.

Great place for an afternoon wine tasting. We stopped there on a rainy Friday afternoon and were happy that we did. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly and the wines were delicious. They only charged for the 3 higher end wines on their list, so the other 10 or so were free to taste. They also have a great little... More

The Winery has a nice cozy tasting room and gift shop. We looked forward to visiting the Holy Cross Abby and Winery as the view from the road is spectacular. The Abby looks like it was lifted from England and dropped in the middle of Colorado. We were sorely disappointed with our visit to the winery as the staff was... More

The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey has a beautiful tasting room and gift shop. The Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is spectacular! Found some wonderful little wine accessories for a birthday present for a friend. Lovely little peaceful place!
