Why This Scenic Little Colorado Town Could Soon Be The Next Napa Valley
California is famous for its wine country, but few out-of-staters realize that Colorado is also home to its own beautiful vineyard town! If you enjoy a great glass of wine with equally spectacular views, don’t book a trip to California; instead, visit this scenic Colorado town that could be the next Napa Valley.
Located in western Colorado (near the Colorado/Utah border) is the small and scenic town of Palisade, which has earned the nickname of "Peach Capital of Colorado."
While Palisade is famous for its juicy peaches, many do not realize that the town of 3,000 also produces something else...
Home to a few dozen wineries, Palisade has a wine for every taste, ranging from sweet White Zins and bold Cabs all the way to the driest of Chardonnays.
As if the wines themselves weren't reason enough to visit Palisade, the area is also home to a number of other wine-related attractions, like the beautiful Fruit & Wine Byway...
Spanning 25 miles of scenic backcountry roads, the Palisade Fruit & Wine Byway is one of Colorado’s newest byways, created to drive traffic to the local businesses around the Palisade area.
...charming bed and breakfasts...
Pictured is the Wine Country Inn; a wine-themed hotel that is home to lovely rooms and complimentary wine tastings!
...and, of course, wine festivals and special events.
The 2018 Colorado Mountain Winefest takes place September 13-16 and features food and wine pairings, vineyard tours, and special workshops.
