While visiting friends in the area, I was surprised to discover I was in the midst of a Colorado wine region. Lucky me! I didn't get to taste at all the wineries in the area, but after 3 days of tasting I have to say that Canyon Winds was our favorite winery. The tasting room is well-constructed and professional, yet... More

My husband and I walked in having never done an actual wine tasting and were welcomed with a warm smile and nothing but patience. She was very knowledgable of the vineyard and wines alike and you could tell she enjoyed her job. After tasting a few different varieties we purchased one of their specialty wines, the 47ten White, named after... More

Staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. Sat out back on their patio and enjoyed a nice glass of wine and the fresh country air.

My friends surprised me with a tour and private tasting, what a wonderful experience! Our guide was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions! After the tasting we enjoyed a glass of wine outside at a table in the shade. Beautiful surroundings, delicious wines and a very memorable day...can't wait to go back!

This is our second trip to this area. If you are coming from the East this is the first good winery you will come across. The wine is very good; we liked the 47-Ten red, Boreas, and the Petit Verdot in particular. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, the small tasting area very welcoming and the outside area very... More

We found this winery a couple years ago by chance and we have gone back each year since. It is such a lovely place to not only enjoy a glass of wine outside in their small patio area but the view is amazing and everyone is very kind and helpful.

If you are lucky enough to go into the cave, like during the Barrel Tasting, this is an Excellent experience. On our visit, there were two large groups scheduled for tastings and the tasting was in the Fermentation area just inside from the Tasting Room. They have a number of wines to taste, from the 47-Ten, Canyon Wind Cellars Varietals... More

Just a short bike ride out side "downtown" Palisade, CO, this has become one of my "go to" places for a delightful white wine, "47-Ten". It's a dry, but fruity white for a summer afternoon or evening (89% Chardonnay & 11% Pinot Grigio). Goes with lots of summer dishes. Also a favorite is a "blush" - a Pinot done "white"... More
