Welcome to Carlson Vineyards, Colorado Bonded Winery #13. Located in Palisade, Colorado our family-owned winery is focused on producing premium wines in the heart of Colorado's wine country. Pioneers of the Colorado wine industry, we use sun-ripened local grapes and fruit grown on the high elevation slopes of the Rocky Mountains to create easy drinking, regionally distinctive wines.
A visit to our winery and tasting room provides the opportunity to experience everything from our internationally awarded Riesling to our unique T-Red Lemberger to the perennial favorite sweet treat, Cherry 'n Chocolate. Our enthusiastic, knowledgable, and friendly staff and family members look forward to sharing our passion for our award-winning wines, beautiful region, and most importantly, our family, with you.
