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!

I can't say enough about the beauty of this area. The Colorado river supplies water to this valley and the local growers make the most of it. You can stand among rows and rows of green grape vines and look up to see the red rocks of the mesa. I had not been to the winery before; but several years... More

My husband and I were traveling through Palisade and had time for one quick stop. We picked Canyon Wind Cellars and are so grateful we did. Kris talked us through a lovely tasting and the wines were surprisingly less fruity than than we've come to expect with Colorado wines. We even bought a few bottles to bring home. If you... More

Pam in the tasting room is always pleasant and knowledgeable about the wines. The Anemoi wines are definitely a must to try.

Happen to drive by Canyon Wind Winery on our way back to Steamboat Springs. Never really liked Colorado wines since the ones I've tasted tend to be on the "fruity" side and both my husband and I like more dry wines. But, the vineyard looked really nice and we stopped. So glad we did. The first wine we tasted, a... More

Stopped by this winery on our way home from Colorado to California and WOW what a great choice that was! We were traveling with our young dog and we weren't sure if she would be welcome. So we were a bit slow to go inside. Well one of the ladies came out with a big smile and invited us and... More

Beautiful location and beautiful vineyard. We tasted outside and the setting was so pretty. The wines were plentiful with their specialty in dry reds. They had a nice range of age, complexity, and price point and we walked away with many....even a wine that gives back to the local pet adoption and you get a free stuffed animal of their... More

From an oenophile, these are some of the best wines out there, especially for the price (although there are a lot of truly outstanding $10 bottles and even best-in-show Grand Champions out there). A very nice tasting room in a great location on the east end of Palisade. There are three wine labels associated with Canyon Wind; 47-Ten, named for... More

There were about 6 couples tasting wines when we arrived but we didn't have to wait long for someone to help us with the tasting. Each person gets to taste 3 wines at no cost. So we each tried 3 and shared our samples which gave us a chance to try 6 wines total. We purchased 4 different wines -... More

A little off the beaten path makes this lovely tasting room a nice treat after biking past the peach trees. We enjoyed all of their wines but really liked the forty seven ten white and red blends which we are happy to find are distributed in Denver.

Visited Jay and Canyon Wind Cellars on Friday of last week. A stop in Palisade to visit wineries without a stop here would be an unforgivable offense.
