Overview

Talon Winery & St. Kathryn Cellars offers a full range of traditional locally produced wines. We make reds, whites, dessert wines and 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 with our Colorado Wine History display. Finally, we are home to the Colorado Fudge Factory, which makes a tantalizing array of constantly changing flavors of fresh fudge. Since our sister winery, St. Kathryn Cellars, is in the same building, it is like visiting two tasting rooms in one.

Make sure to stop by this winery right off of the highway. It has 2 tasting areas: one has some excellent reds (cab is fantastic) and classic whites; the other has much sweeter, fruit-based wines. The fruit used exclusively comes from local vineyards and orchards....More

Attached to the other winery, this shop had some great tasting options and super awesome wine accessories. They sell fudge here as well. The jalapeno fudge was very interesting but you can't go wrong with rocky road or walnut blends. I put the raspberry chocolate...More

Felt like just another customer. Glasses were not rinsed between tastes, a minor infraction, but makes a difference. Several wines to sample. There is a fee after five tastings. Lots of local merchandise available to sample. However, we felt the Gewurziraminer 2014 was the tastiest...More
