Talon at Palisade's Newest Wine Bar
Talon Palisade Winery
We are pleased to announce three of our wines (Talon Wingspan Red, Wingspan White, and St. Kathryn White Sangria) can now be sampled and sipped at the newly re-branded Palisade Cafe and Wine Bar. The Palisade Cafe offers nightly dinner specials that feature food and wine pairings. Owner John Sabal, and house sommelier, says, "As a full-service wine bar, our patrons can now learn more about Colorado wines in one location unlike anywhere else. We’re excited to be a year-round Colorado wine enjoyment center.” We are grateful to be alongside our other local winery peers at this local hotspot. Visit the Palisade Cafe and Wine Bar at 113 W 3rd St.
Newly Released: The Falconer
The much anticipated new 2016 vintage of The Falconer has been released and is showing promising reception from our customers. Only 99 cases were made of this reserve blend, making it truly an exclusive, one of a kind red blend. Head Winemaker Hillary Eales says, "This vintage of Falconer has a unique toasted chocolate aroma that honestly surprised and delighted me as it came out in the wine. It's smooth enough to drink now, yet tannic enough to cellar." The Falconer is a proprietary blend of premium, Old World “black” grapes originating in Portugal, and the Pyrenees of Southern France. Its deep, rich color and dry flavors of black cherries, cocoa, and coffee with an undercurrent of oak make it enjoyable now and for many years to come. With cases being sold at a time, we know we have made a uniquely premier product. Give us a call today to find out how you can get your hands on this unique vintage: 970-464-1300.
Caprese Bites with Pinot Grigio.
This time of year calls for refreshing, light pairings that will work perfectly for your next outdoor get-together. One of the biggest challenges as a consumer of wine is finding a food and wine pairing that will work well together. That’s why we offer them to you here! It's our job to not only provide you with the highest quality wine, but to make sure you have the right wine for the occasion.
We recommend Talon Pinot Grigio with these easy to make Caprese Bites. Both are light and refreshing. When finding pairings, it’s important to keep the flavors either similar or opposite (spicy and sweet).
Cherry Chip Cheese Ball or Dip
This recipe highlights our Meadery of the Rockies Cherry Honey Wine. It’s a delicious, sweet Cheese Ball filled with Maraschino Cherries and mini Chocolate Chips.
Behind the Scenes Look: Featuring Wholesale Assistant Natalia
Our Wholesale Assistant Natalia helps us keep our relationships strong with our local wine providers. If you are local, you may even recognize her! Her weeks get pretty busy working for us here at Talon Wine Brands, as we are one of the only wineries that locally distributes our own wine here in the Grand Valley (Outside of the valley we use a distributor, such as Breakthru Beverage). She stocks the wine, delivers it, and takes orders just to name a few of her responsibilities.
