Very nice winery with helpful staff. Wines from the western slope tend to be on the fruity side, but I had good wines previously from Grande Vineyards and wanted to visit the physical location. Everyone gets 3 complimentary tastings. The tasting area itself isn't very large, and it was a bit crowded that afternoon given that it was the same... More

The winery is located close to the highway and the Wine Country Inn. The wine is very good and they have some cute gift shop items. If you want to try their full line of wines, you can pay $9.95 and you get to keep the glass, otherwise you can do the free wine tasting that has limited samples.

This winery had a great selection of wines, many with multiple rewards. I especially enjoyed their "havin' a cow" red wine!

This was our first stop on our wine tour. We enjoyed the tastings and the friendly service--some good wines. Cute gift items in a small space.

We loved going to this winery - the people there are so friendly, and the wine is fantastic! Our favorite is the Malbec! The winery is situated in the heart of the Palisade valley along with other vineyards and fruit orchards - just a beautiful place to spend the day!! It's great for a couples trip, or just a trip...

Randy was our pourmaster and he was quite interesting and knowledgable. We had tasting room to ourselves and enjoyed the sample tastes and conversation. Then a group of bikers came in, so we took our 2 bottles of wine and continued our tour. Got 2 very good wines and time well spent. Very convenient to I 70 also.

Really enjoyed this winery and the delightful wines they carry. Wish we could have stayed longer but it was close to the end of the day for us. Will definitely make it back when around town again! Must see winery!

One of the originals. I believe they make some of the wines for Wine Country inn. A good first (or only) stop..tho' Palisade has many great wine venues to offer.

I was not impresed with this winery and would not recommend stopping there. When I arrived the cashier was busy with a customer and another employee had to come downstairs to help me. She made me feel like I was interupting her work to taste their wines. The wines I tried were not very good. You only get three tastes... More

I have stopped by and/or made special trips when in Denver to Palisade for the tasting and purchasing of what I consider fine wine. I make annual trips in the fall September/October and have made it a must to visit Grand River Vineyards. Last September (2012) we were given a tour of the winery and were able to sample many...
