Top travel recommendation website, TripAdvisor, named Palisade in the Top 10 Wine Destinations in the U.S. in their Travelers’ Choice Awards 2012, and Meadery of the Rockies as a DON'T MISS stop.

As Colorado’s first and most beloved (or bee-loved!) meadery, Meadery of the Rockies makes an array of honey based wines, all starting with pure, raw Orange Blossom honey.

Owners Glenn and Natalie Foster have been involved in the Colorado wine industry for more than 16 years. Due to growing up and working in northern California’s wine country, Glenn is a second generation winemaker whose father, Reed Foster Sr., co-founded and operated Sonoma’s Ravenswood Winery for 30 years. This foundation, along with a leap of faith to take part in Colorado’s burgeoning wine business in the 1990s, led to a successful career in winemaking for Glenn. A passion for falconry inspired Glenn to name his company Talon Wine Brands.

Talon Wine Brands encompasses Meadery of the Rockies and sister wineries St. Kathryn Cellars and Talon Winery. Talon Wine Brands produces 40+ wines, employs 20 people in Palisade, and ships to 19 states.

  • If you like Mead, this is the place for you. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The rating is for the facility and staff. It turns out mead isn't to our taste. However, the people who liked mead seemed to enjoy.
  • The best honey mead wine you will find in Colorado... great selection and really kind waitstaff... I'll be back for more!
  • Delicious mead and honey products from Colorado producers.
  • Definitely a place to check off your list of things to do in Palisade. Unique wine list (the chocolate dessert ones were my favorite), with an incredible staff.
  • Great mead (honey wine) here. The Lancelot semi-dry was my favorite and the best classic mead I've had to date. The guy who helped us was very nice and also gave us some good advice for things to do in the area. They offer tastings so if your in the area and have time I definitely recommend the stop.
