This fall, Gateway Canyons Resort & Spa in Colorado will be offering travelers a wine tasting experience as part of this year’s Colorado Mountain Winefest.

The 26th Annual Colorado Mountain Winefest will take place from September 14-17 in Palisade, CO – a little over an hour drive southwest from Gateway Canyons.  At the Winefest, travelers can sip on regional wines – as Palisade itself is home to more than 25 wineries – while also exploring the “undiscovered” nature of the area. The festival was recently nominated by USA Today "10Best" as a contender for “Best Wine Festival in the U.S.” 2017. 

On Friday, September 15, Gateway Canyons Resort & Spa will host an event leading up to the festival, which will include a guided tasting tour at two wineries, a multi-course lunch with wine and entrance to the Gateway Auto Museum.
