Palisade, Colorado and Surrounding Area

    life

    Wine Country Inn, located in the heart of Colorado’s popular wine industry in Palisade, has much to offer harried city dwellers. Imagine rocking on our porches or your personal patio and sipping a glass of wine produced from grapes grown right on the property. Now, that’s a Vineyard Retreat!

    After you’ve relaxed in our hot tub or cooled off in our seasonal pool, you will be ready to visit orchards, wineries, shops or galleries nearby, then take in dinner at the Inn or local restaurant. Year-around events make life interesting in Palisade, no matter the time of the year.

    Even when the weather chills down, our wineries and local fruit producers have tasting and showrooms with wonderful products for you to sample and purchase. Once you’ve caught your breath and rested up, there are adventures awaiting for you on our bike trails, on the beautiful alpine Grand Mesa or the magnificent Colorado River.

    We’re a tank of gas away from Denver and Salt Lake City or a few hours flight from most points in the U.S.
