Explore Colorado: Palisade Wineries
Jennifer Broome explores some of the different wineries in Palisade.
Palisade is known for its outdoor adventure opportunities, peaches, and wine. As part of Colorado’s Wine Country, you can sample some of Palisade’s estate-bottled, small-batch wines as you visit the 16 wineries in the small town that is filled with vineyards and orchards.
A great way to visit the wineries is by bike. You can rent bikes at Rapid Creek Cycle in downtown Palisade. There’s a loop that is flat and perfect for cruiser bikes. On that loop you can visit 7 wineries in 7 miles.
We visited several of the wineries on this trip. Talon Winery and Saint Katheryn Cellars are in the same complex. Maison la Belle Vie is a little bit of Paris in Palisade. Canyon Wind Cellars and Anemoi Wines are part of the Canyon Wind Estate Winery.
The food scene in the Grand Valley is also getting a lot of nods from foodies. Bin 707 in downtown Grand Junction is winning rave reviews from locals and tourists. Don’t miss out on their Brussel sprouts. Number one item on their menu is their burger.
Check out the Palisade Peach Festival this weekend in Palisade.
