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

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
