“In the heart of Colorado wine country”
Carlson Vineyards, a small farm winery, produces premium wines in the heart of Colorado wine country above the town of Palisade. We're known for pioneering Colorado wines using sun-ripened local grapes and fruit grown on the slopes of the Rocky Mountains at an altitude of 4700 ft. While we take the art of winemaking seriously, we like to have fun too. A favorite of locals since 1988, come taste our wines and discover your favorite - Riesling, Cherry, T-Red, Laughing Cat Sweet Baby Red, Shiraz, Cougar Run Gewurztraminer - or? Savor the scenic vistas of the Grand Valley too.
The Traveling Winers on Colorado Wine Trail
Carlson Vineyard was the last stop on our wine trail through the Grand Junction – Palisades, CO area. We were told by several other vineyards and by other winers to make sure and not miss visiting Carlson Vineyards. Unfortunately, our timing was a bit off. We had written down that their closing time was 6pm, and although it took longer to get there than we expected, we still arrived at 5:35 leaving 25 minutes to taste. Or at least we thought! It turns out that they close their doors at 6pm, but the tastings stop at 5:45 – can’t experience the whole experience in only 10 minutes! We will say however, that our tasting room host, Liz, after telling us we had only 10 minutes to taste, did a great job making suggestions on which wines we should taste and why. We appreciated her guidance based on the time limitations.
Our time spent here did not allow sufficient opportunity to experience all this vineyard had to offer. However, based on recommendations, we will definitely be back to embrace the full experience.
