Great Facility Tour - and some good wine too
May 2021
We enjoy wine. But, not wine connoisseurs. Our big wine discriminators are white-red and sweet-sour. We do like the wine making process and learning about the grapes and wineries. We chose Grande River as it has tours of their facilities. We got there late in the day thinking that they wouldn't have any tours. We were wrong.

Upon asking about a tour, one of the servers said sure, let's go. He was great. Randy, agreed to take us on a tour of the back room where they turn grapes into wine. He spent a long time with us showing us the machinery for separating the grapes from stems, crushing the grapes (and separating the juice from skins for white wines), wine fermentation and finally wine aging. Along the way he told us about the barrels, cleaning the fermentation tanks, topping off the barrels. And the final room he took us to was the bottling area. What a nice tour.

Oh, and the wine. We were allowed three free tastings each (six since we shared). We could tell red from white and found several we liked. And actually bought two bottles.

A nice experience. The tasting room is average, but comfortable. it's the people that made it special.

We stopped by a snowy December morning, had our three complimentary tastes, got a bottle to take home, and felt very safe! Delicious wines for Colorado.

Always delicious!

We are actually wine club members and really like the wines here. The place has been for sale forever so if you have a couple million, step right up. The wines are excellent and vary from casual to slightly expensive but they’re all really good. Whether you red or white, you’ll find something great in a lovely setting. Can’t wait for the return of the summer concerts!

We visited this place twice. Good location and nice service. The wines were delicious. And they open at 9am which is nice for travelers coming and going. There were a couple of outdoor picnic tables with lots of lavender nearby and close to some great peach markets. Check it out.

this is one of the first wineries in the valley and it had incredible tastings and wonderful store. Now it is up for sale, the wine is so so and definitely is showing it's age.

Because they open at 9, this was our first stop of the day. We were the only ones in the tasting room so we had a super wonderful, personal tasting! The workers were great to talk to and we enjoyed a good amount of the wine.

Nice room, OK wines.
Aug 2019
The tasting room itself is inviting, and the bottles are all decked out with ribbons the vineyard has won. We weren't crazy about the wines, but that is subjective. We noticed that there is an inn next door so we asked about it. The server said she didn't know anything about it, like how many rooms, etc. Hmmm. She didn't seem to have much knowledge about the wines, either. Oh well.

Once again, our visit to Grande River was a sheer joy, right off the highway, with gorgeous Colorado wines. We had the pleasure of being served by Pam, who was friendly and very welcoming. Cute tasting room overlooking the Bookcliffs and their vineyards. Bought six bottles! We highly recommend this fantastic find!

Stopped by here since it was next door to where we were staying. Did the tasting and found that their reds were definitely better than the whites they offered.
