Owner description: Maison La Belle Vie (French for "House of Beautiful Life") was planted 8 years ago. The first vintages from the estate winery, were introduced in 2006 and included Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Rosé and Muscat; a dessert wine that is traditional in the Loire Valley in France. Maison la Belle Vie has now added 3 Reserve wines, a Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot all aged for 4 years as well as the famous Vin de Peche; a Muscat, fortified with peaches - a recipe from John's family that has been handed down through the generations since the late 1800's. A new addition is a hand crafted walnut liquor that is simply delicious.

Thank you Evan for being such a nice host and letting us enjoy the beautiful yard for our post-tasting picnic. Great wines, friendly staff and beautiful location. Really liked the wine barrel bike rack out front!

We've visited this Winery several times over the past year, as our daughter chose it as the venue for her October, 2014 wedding. The outdoor area of the winery is charming. As John, the owner is French, it has a definite French feel to it. The wine is wonderful, and you can have a great meal there with bread, meats,... More

Bring your own food and grab a bottle of their red blend then sit out in their patio/garden area surrounded by vineyards. Best ambiance of all the wineries.

With just a turn down the driveway, we knew we were going somewhere special. The setting was perfectly nestled in the vineyards under the shade of large trees. The staff was exceptional - friendly and knowledgable about their wine. Don't miss this stop!

Food and wine in one spot to enjoy. Wines were of high quality and the staff was exceptional. Worth the price and time to stop here. Hard to choose with all the choices and tastes. You won't go wrong here.

I was shocked when the charcuterie platter showed up. The platter for 2 is more than 2 people can eat, but we did our best. The proscuitto and salami were both amazing. I highly recommend the Syrah Blend from this winery.

This is the only winery where you can buy food to enjoy with the wine right at the winery. A chacuterie lunch will cost you $35, but the cheeses and presentation are superb. Try a tasting before you order and then get a glass of your favorite to enjoy with the food. Sitting under the trees outside the winery...it's heaven.

This is BY FAR the best in Palisade. Skip the others and spend time here and enjoy a snack and nice class of wine. The setting is perfect. It feels like you are in france or napa. Excellent wine, we had a bottle of cab sav and enjoyed sitting outside. We didn't try them, but the cheese and meat boards... More

Wine of the Walnut!! A smooth port that I'll never get enough of!! The front room is small so be patient because the tasting is well worth the wait. All six of us had favorites here; I chose the peach and walnut port but the they were all very good. We found if we were willing to share glasses we... More

We had a sensational and leisurely visit to Maison la Belle. Carla our tasting host and Corey, winemaker and winery manager were wonderful hosts for our morning adventure. Carla was very engaging and attentive while Corey was great describing the wine making, grapes and style of the wines. After a tasting of three wines we settled in on the outside... More
