What's New At Carlson's
Carlson Vineyards, a small farm winery, produces premium wines in the heart of Colorado
wine country above the town of Palisade.
We're known for pioneering Colorado wines using sun-ripened local grapes and fruit grown on the slopes of the Rocky Mountains at an altitude of 4700 ft. While we take the art of winemaking seriously, we like to have fun too. A favorite of locals since 1988, come taste our wines and discover your favorite - Riesling, Cherry, T-Red, Laughing Cat Sweet Baby Red, Shiraz, Cougar Run Gewurztraminer - or? Savor the scenic vistas of the Grand Valley too.

Wine of the Month
Laughing Cat Riesling
Carlson is famous for Rieslings, we were honored with the World Riesling Cup in 2004, DOUBLE GOLD at the same prestigious International Eastern Wine Competition in 2009, and this 2014 won Silver at Indy International. Carrying on the tradition of excellence, this 2014 fruity Riesling is produced from Colorado-grown grapes with tastes of apple, apricot, and pear. It is a semi-sweet white wine, with a balance of tartness and fruity floral aromas. Very versatile with both people and food, pleasant before dinner, and delicious with light dishes such as melon, prosciutto, baked ham, chicken, trout, "Swiss" type cheeses and fresh fruit. Serve chilled.  more
