During our stay at the Dolores River RV Park we decided to do some side trips to explore this corner of S.W. Colorado. We chose to do one winery visit. To get to Sutcliffe Vineyards you drive west of Cortez, Colorado on Rd. G thru the beautiful McElmo Canyon. Arriving at the entrance I almost drove past the little dirt... More

Beautiful views. Spoke with the hostess, told us history of some of the wines, history of the local people, sites to see, restaurants to try in the four corners. She was a fountain of information. Best places to hike, off the beaten path. Hidden gems like the vineyard to try. She was utterly delightful. So sweet and nice, very knowledgeable... More

We came to visit Sutcliffe Vineyards after my husband tasted their wines at The Tinderbox restaurant in Flagstaff. He was impressed with the wine so we made sure to look them up when we were passing through Cortez on our way to Telluride, Colorado. We stay in Cortez on our way between California and Colorado on a regular basis and... More

Amazing wines - I stumbled upon on this Winery quite by accident. During a happy hour at a Brew-Pub in Durango I noticed Sutcliffe wines on tap and asked the bartender about them. He told me that there big sellers and that people love them. So I Goggled Sutcliffe and the next day I was out to Cortez. The tasting... More

Staff was friendly - we surprised the owner out of a late breakfast but he was more than happy to introduce himself and show us around. We were given exactly the kind of tasting that we wanted (it was before noon) and the staff led us through all of the buildings. Since we were the only ones there we had... More

This was a serendipitous venture to visit a Colorado winery while in nearby Durango. We were greeted on the patio and enjoyed a tasting of the wineries offerings. The other visitors were friends of the owner and we had the pleasure of meeting John Sutcliffe when he arrived. He was gracious in telling us some of the background of the... More

We had first tasted and were impressed with Sutcliffe wines in Flagstaff, AZ. On our trip to Crested Butte, CO, we were excited to add a visit Sutcliffe Vinyards along the way. Although Google maps dropped us off 10 miles short of our destination, we persevered until we found the address, nestled in the canyon, with beautiful views We were... More

I had seen good reviews for this vinyards and wanted to go. We were very disappointed because we went for a tasting and tour, but they were really not interested in giving us a tour. Quite a few of the reviews had raved about the tour and the owner. We never met the owner and the lady that helped us... More
