This winery has a very small tasting room, but the wines are good. It has a beautiful outside event area with a stage for bands. The lawn is well manicured with the book cliffs in the background. Definitely would recommend going in the summer for their concerts.

This was the first winery we stopped at in Palisade/Grand Junction and it stands out as the best. Excellent service, great wine selection, and the experience to taste the various grapes right off of the vine outside. We even ended up buying two bottles of wine!

This was a first and favorite winery in Palisade. It is literally right off I-70 and we walked from our hotel next door. Very pleasant staff who was excited about the wines and telling us about the local area and other things to check out. They had 19 different wines, and allow 5 complimentary tastes per person. Our favorite was... More

For being the largest Winery disappointed in the tasting room being so small. The wines we tried were nothing special.

Very friendly staff and good atmosphere. I stop here nearly every time we drive through Grand Junction and usually end up buying their meritage red. Most of the wines are fruit forward and young, and honestly over-priced. But there's usually a gem amongst them like the meritage, and I enjoy unpretentious tasting rooms where the staff is excited about what... More

At the time we were the only ones in there so we received undivided attention. Some great selections and super service by Susie! Well stocked gift shop and even has some snacks at picnic tables on the grounds.

The wine they offer is OK, my husband liked one of their whites. I find the same taste here as at a few other Palisade wineries, a young grape taste without much depth.

This tasting room has very nice, kind of more bar-like than a lot of wineries. There were very nice staff and as always, cool gifts to buy.

We stopped in on a whim. We each got 3 tastes, so we shared and got to taste 6 wines. The staff were very knowledgeable about the wines and they helped us choose some very good tasting wines. The showroom was lovely and the landscaping was beautiful.
