We just happened upon this lovely vineyard while looking for the Canyon of the Ancient Ruins--what luck!! It was the whole family-Mom, Dad, a 15 y/o, and a 12 y/o (no we don't usually take the kids to wine tastings-but when the opportunity arises...). The kids moaned as Mom insisted on visiting. We were greeted by the friendly staff in... More

I cannot say enough about our visit to Sutcliffe Vineyard. It was a perfect way to end a hike in Canyon of the Ancients. We had the grand tour from John Sutcliffe. The guy is truly amazing! Reminded me of "The Most Interesting Man in the World" on the Dos Equis commercial! The wine was so good! It had style... More

We had a great time visiting with John. He is very enjoyable to visit with while trying his wines. It is a great stop after visiting Hovenweep!

John is a hoot. We almost did not want to leave. Be sure to allocate time to visit and drink. We ate all sorts of vegetables right off of the vine. His wines were well-priced and delicious and his anecdotes and accent were delightful. I get migraines from other wines but not these. We stayed at Canyon of the Ancients... More

Wine tasting is always fun. Listening to great stories from a really interesting guy while he pours samples of wine from bottles with his name on it is even more fun. Our whole group had a blast. Just a perfectly picturesque setting.

We were having a family reunion in Durango and decided to visit Sutcliffe Vineyards in Cortez. We enjoyed hearing about the wine and tasting some excellent varieties. John and Judy were warm and welcoming to the five of us and made our visit particularly memorable. The next time we are in the area we will be sure to stop by... More

If you like good wine, charming places, and lovely people, try to make a stop at Sutcliffe vineyards when in Cortez. En route to Hovenweep we stumbled upon the vineyard and felt it was one of the highlights of our visit to the area. The little sign on dirt road "G" is unassuming, but we were well rewarded for taking... More

This winery is miles and miles from our stay in Cortez, but sharing time/stories/wine with John Sutcliffe is almost worth it. The wines are generally very good ,but they are costly. He poured from a full-size bottle of an excellent sweet red wine, but we discovered after we bought 2 bottles that the for-sale bottles are much smaller. Interesting and... More

My family and I were fortunate enough to have been able to visit with John Sutcliffe at Sutcliffe Vineyards today. It was the perfect end to a perfect trip to Colorado. Mr. Sutcliffe took his personal time to show us about his operations, explain his farming efforts, show us his vegetable and herb gardens as well as his wonderful fruit... More
