Meadery of the Rockies, Palisade

4.7
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.

  • Fun times! I am not usually a fan of sweet wine but this was a unique experience. The honey wines were delicious! We had a great time and came away with a couple bottles of yummy mead. One tastes like chocolate covered cherries! Also had delicious honey butters and sauces and jams. I bought some organic lotion.
  • Mead is amazing! It seriously changes the game. So much smoother than wine. The staff was so friendly and made the experience really fun. We got a passport to all the Talon wineries which turned out to be a super fun day. Had to pick up a bottle of mead at the end of the day. Will definitely want more mead in the future.
