Grande River Vineyards is a premier wine and grape growing estate that has been doing business since 1987. The vineyard produces award winning wine and is known throughout the world for its world class tastes. The vineyard is located just off Interstate 70 at the exit for Palisade, Colorado but is technically situated in Grand Junction, Colorado. The winery is open seven days a week from 9 am to 5 pm and Sunday wine purchases from gift shop are available.
The tasting room is open daily and has a large variety of wines available for sampling. A nice gift shop carries many of the wines offered by Grande River as well as oils, vinegars, wine related gifts and tools, and a variety of gourmet foods to complement the wine purchased. The gift shop is a popular place near the holiday season.
The winery is nestled just under the Bookcliffs which provide a 2,000 foot backdrop above the vineyard. The area is uniquely set up to protect the vines from frost in the late fall and early spring as well as providing warmth to ripen the vines at the right stages. The setting and location make for a perfect vine ripening experience.
