Event Recaps and Upcomings

It's been another great event season for Colorado wine lovers and Talon Wine Brands.

At right, Talon's Tyler Phillips is pictured with Andrew Adams (left) at the Orpheus event.

Upcoming, select your Halloween wines at Fisher's Liquor Barn at 2438 Patterson Road in Grand Junction on October 26 from 4-6 pm. Other tastings and pourings will be posted on our events calendar on our web site.

In the Vineyards and Orchards: Harvest Progress

The harvest is just about over for us except for Riesling grapes which are scheduled to arrive next week for crushing and pressing. Wikipedia say that "Riesling is an aromatic grape variety displaying flowery, almost perfumed, aromas as well as high acidity", and is used for our acclaimed Talon Riesling Wine as well as our top-selling St. Kathryn Cellars Lavender Wine.

Viognier is another white wine grape that we recently pressed. At left, head winemaker Brian Stevens savors the scent of this full-bodied wine grape. Our tanks and casks are full of delicious juices from the vineyards, orchards and berry patches. We are thankful for a fruitful season!



Try These Fall Flavors!

St. Kathryn Cellars fruit and botanical wines taste fresh and crisp, perfect for toasting to autumn!

Golden Pear

Enjoy the unique flavor of ripe, golden pears. There's a touch of spiciness that PEAR-fectly balances the gentle sweetness of this fruit wine. All-around goodness and a delicious base for mixed drinks or hot mulled wine with spices. Great with fruit, cheeses and fish or fowl.

Apple Blossom

Beautiful golden hue, clean, tart aroma and flavor brimming with ripe apples. This wine will transport you to an autumnal orchard. Mull it with cinnamon swizzle sticks!




Cranberry Kiss

Kiss the holidays hello with this bright and beautiful wine. The berry nose promises delight and follows through with a touch of sweetness balanced by lots of pucker power! Enjoy it chilled, mulled or topped with bubbly for extra festivity.


Featured Fudge
Pumpkin Spice Latte

Fresh fudge from the Colorado Fudge Factory in our St. Kathryn Cellars tasting room: stock up for harvest and Halloween treats! During October, obtain this sinfully delicious fudge for snacking and gifting. And consider acquiring some extra for fall and the holidays! It makes a great Colorado-themed gift.
