BookCliff Vineyards Tasting Room
BookCliff Vineyards is located in "the Vinelands," a region east of Palisade, Colorado, where grapes were grown at the turn of the century. Situated just west of the DeBeque Canyon, across from the Colorado River and underneath the BookCliff escarpment, our vineyards benefit from evening winds that prevent frost and provide moderate growing temperatures. Our wine is 100% Colorado grown. We apply sustainable farming practices, and minimize the use (once in our six years of operation) of herbicides or pesticides are used.
As the owners and operators of BookCliff Vineyards, we (John Garlich and Ulla Merz, husband and wife) started in the winemaking business in 1999.
