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. The blend is different each year depending on the growing conditions and what type of grapes are available. Ask about the history of the... More

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.

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

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
