We Believe Wine is to Be Enjoyed

It’s nature’s gift, “…a constant reminder that God loves us and wants us to be happy,” said Benjamin Franklin. People have been drinking wine since the dawn of time. Talon Winery strives to craft nature’s bounty into superb wines from locally grown grapes here in Palisade, the Fruit & Wine Capital of Colorado.

Our founding winemaker, after learning the business from the ground up in Sonoma, moved here in 1995 to join the recent but rapidly growing wine culture. Wine and falconry are two passions that converged in Talon Winery, a small family-owned winery specializing in big classic-style wines that sport a raptor on the label.

On your hunt for excellent wines, stop by our tasting room, located just off I-70 Palisade exit 42, gateway to Colorado’s Fruit & Wine Country. Or find us throughout Colorado at fun events, tastings and retail outlets.
