BookCliff Vineyards

BookCliff Vineyards The winery is located in Boulder and the vineyard is located in the "Vinelands" east of Palisade, where grapes were grown at the turn of the century. Situated just west of the De Beque Canyon, across from the Colorado River, and underneath the Bookcliffs escarpment, our vineyards benefit from evening winds that prevent frost and provide moderate growing temperatures. The vineyard was planted in 1996 and the winery opened in 1999. Most of the BookCliff wines are aged in French oak barrels. The selection of our wines is based on what we grow in our vineyard. We are known for our award winning Ensemble ( a Bourdeaux varietal blend) and popular Viognier. We also produce Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and a desert wine made from Black Muscat grapes.

Directions
Coming from the east on I-70, take the first exit (#44) and head west (straight ahead). The road makes a gentle curve following the Colorado River. Our vineyard is on the north side of the road as it straightens out. Coming from the west on I-70, take the first Palisade exit (#42) and head south on 37 1/3 Road to G Road. Head east on G Road through Palisade and cross over the Colorado River. The vineyard is on the north side of G Road about 1/2 mile east of the Colorado River bridge.
