Owner description: As Colorado's first and most bee-loved meadery, Meadery of the Rockies makes an array of honey based wines. We start with pure, raw Orange Blossom honey, then ferment it. We also craft fruit 'n honey wines. They're blends of mead and fruit wines such as blackberry, strawberry & peach. We also carry fortified dessert wines. Mead is one of the oldest alcoholic drinks known to man and has a rich and interesting history. Stop in to our tasting room in the heart of Palisade, CO to learn more and have complimentary tastes of our mead.

I've never been to a meadery or even had mead to drink so we were curious about this place. Once inside Cindy was super helpful and really friendly. They have 14 different types of Meade to sample plus 2 that are served hot and spiced. We sampled all of them and were totally impressed. The King Arthur is great if... More

Start with the people: warm, knowledgable, welcoming and customer oriented. Took time to explain their products and the range of flavors, sweetness, and potential food pairings. They have one of the larger selections of mead - straight honey wine to fruit infused blends. There are 5 complimentary tastings. My tastes run to the sweet side, but they had drier varieties...

Made with honey. Yes honey, honey. Very unique and full of flavor. More on the sweeter than drier side. Very refreshing for a hot day or when you desire a taste of summer when the weather turns to winter. The staff was knowledgeable and very friendly. They made it fun and educated us on the differences of wine vs mead.... More

Mead is something you can't get everywhere, but the Meadery of the Rockies is certainly worth the stop! Definitely try the Cherry Satin.

I like that they infuse honey in their different wines. The bottles are gorgeous! During the tasting I couldn't decide on a wine, and they didn't give me a hard time about 'repouring' certain ones. We ended up buying two bottles and then hung around in the gazebo on the premises, taking photos and just enjoying the gorgeous Labor Day... More

I've never really been a mead person, but as a beekeeper, I decided to give it another shot by checking out this local meadery. Everyone gets 5 complimentary tastings. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. In the end, I've decided I'm still not a mead fan but I'm glad we stopped here as it's really cute inside. The space... More

This is one of the places we cannot pass up when we come to Palisade. We love their Mead, they are very friendly and the tour is very informational. They also have a great gift shop!

A friend asked me to get him some mead since I would be at the peach festival, and I'm glad he did! I went in and was immediately hit with a fabulous aroma. The friendly, knowledgeable staff on hand guided us through a few tastings and we walked out with a few of our own bottles. Terrific experience all around!
