Founded in 1991, Canyon Wind Cellars is a family-owned, estate winery named for the mountain breezes that keep the fruit on our vineyard cool under the hot Colorado sun. With the assistance of renowned Napa Winemaker, Robert Pepi, the Christianson family produces award-winning, signature wines utilizing low-intervention winemaking and sustainable practices. We look forward to sharing our passion with you!

Canyon Wind Cellars was the first vineyard we visited on our trip to Palisade. We walked there from Wine Country Inn, which was ridiculous. You should drive. The tasting room staff was friendly and helpful, Lance in particular.

Wine tasting in Palisades was the start of a day trip up to Grand Mesa... we chose two that were open today. Canyon Wind has a very cool location, beautiful grounds that I would have explored with my camera, if it hadn't been raining hard. The wines were good, and we enjoyed our visit.

Nice setup and landscape. wines are average good but way overpriced. Other wineries in the area are definitely a better value for the money.

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

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.
