We visited Sutcliffe Vineyards and met John Sutcliffe. He was very friendly and made us feel at home. Very nice staff and the Chardonnay and Reiling was awesome. If you are around, stop by and do some wine tasting.

We sampled the wine and were very disappointed when we were served warm Chardoney, really warm. The bottle was sitting in the sun and when I suggested that they serve colder wine, I was told that he was busy and didn't have a chance to...More

Excellent wine and a very friendly host (Don). We are going to Mesa Verde this fall and plan to visit the vinyard north of Cortez. It is unusual to find such exceptional wine from such a small vinyard.More
