Talon Winery & St. Kathryn Cellars offer numerous locally produced wines. We make reds, whites, dessert wines, fruit wines and amazingly popular blends. Our location is right next to the highway, so we're super convenient. Aside from wine, we offer a large selection of excellent gifts for your friends and family. You can also learn about Colorado's fascinating wine producing history on our Colorado Wine History display. Finally, we are home to the Colorado Fudge Factory, which makes a tantalizing array of fabulous fudge flavors that is constantly changing. You'll get a lot of variety and a big bang for the time you have available. We look forward to your visit.

Great wine tasting experience, plus fudge!

The woman who helped us with the wine tasting was extremely knowledgable and enthusiastic. She also recommended other things to do while in town, which was very helpful!

This was my second time and I always buy some wine there. I like their Pinot Grigio in particular although I also got some Gewurtztraminer. They have a nice collection of food gifts too. Sometimes you have to wait for tasting because they are so busy.

Must have the Viognier. Lovely white wine! Perfect blend of white grapes and I would say best in the valley. Not to miss this treat

While not as good as the better California wines, Palisade wines, as represented by Talon, are quite drinkable and a great value for the money. The winery makes a wide range of Whites, Rose, and Reds. Tasting is free (unlike their California counterparts.) Salute!

First off if you like dry wines and fudge do the wine first then sample the fudge, that way you get a better taste for the wine. Love the Chardonnay, and the wingspan white and red
