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

A vacation isn't a vacation for us without wine tasting - I was skeptical of Colorado wines but was pleasantly surprised at the excellent quality. Canyon Wind has a lovely tasting room and extremely kind and knowledgeable staff to guide you through their wines and to allow you to learn about their winery. After recently tasting poor after worse overpriced... More

Rode our bicycles to this winery and then drove back to load up on their great wine. Joined their wine club too. We will get three bottles every quarter. Nice people, great atmosphere, excellent award winning wine. Met the young couple who own the winery and were impressed at how hard they were working.

Hosts were gracious and gave us directions to continue our Journey to Utah "off the major highway" so we could experience fruit and vegetable stands along the way. Scenery was beautiful.

If your driving through the Palisades area. Definitely stop by at Canyon Wind Cellars. We love dry red wines. We drink reds 80% of the time and whites 20%. They had a red 47 - Ten (the elevation of the vineyards at 4,710 feet) which was a blend and very nice. The best wine there was a Petit Verdot!!!!! We... More
