Welcome to Colorado’s gorgeous wine country, where guests can find sprawling vineyards and wineries just a few miles from their cozy accommodations. Those wanting to truly make the most of local vino can look at our competitively priced winery and vineyards package tour, which keeps you from missing out on any of the local Pinots, Cabs or Rieslings. The Grand Valley boasts over 20 wineries in an idyllic region shaded by the mesas and red rock cliffs. Endless wine tastings, tours and of course the beloved Colorado Mountain Winefest make Grand Junction a wine lover’s paradise. However, you don’t need to be a vino aficionado to fall in love with this wine country.
Plan your trip in September to indulge in the Winefest, but rest assured that the wineries are open for tastings year-round. St. Kathryn Cellars/Talon Winery is a boutique, family-owned winery that’s been creating a buzz since 1999. The Colorado Cellars Winery/Rocky Mountain Vineyards holds the title of Oldest Winery in Colorado, open since 1978. You’ll find it in a hillside, still offering that family-owned small winery atmosphere. For those who appreciate the art of winemaking, Hermosa Vineyards handcrafts each wine from grapes that flourish in the high mountain desert.
Chardonnay and Bordeaux fans meet their match at Desert Sun Vineyards, while Colterris Wines is known for a bold Cabernet. Prefer a more urban vibe? DeBeque Canyon Winery is situated in the Town Center and is within walking distance to numerous shops, galleries and restaurants. There’s a way for everyone to enjoy a glass (or three) here—even in the hotel’s enclosed, romantic courtyard where a wide collection of local wine is served.
