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. My husband and I do not engage in wine tastings... More

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

Don't change a thing! We loved it all. Bill was tremendously helpful and knowledgable and we were thrilled with the variety of offerings. I loved the Cabernet Franc, so we had to take a bottle of that home. The Anemoi wines were very nice, and we had been introduced to the 2012 vintage of "Lips" the night before at dinner... More
