Palisade Makes Top List
Small town Palisade makes big time list. Congratulations.
Top Value Reviews Website recently published it's Top 30 Small Towns list.
Palisade equals peaches, right? Well, yes, but this list is for wine lovers. California pretty much dominates the entire list. Michigan and Oregon get a couple of mentions. Even Alaska gets a shout out on this list.
Palisade stops in at number 16. Here is what the website had to say about our awesome town:
'Located just 12 miles east of Grand Junction is tiny Palisade, Colorado, with a population of just under 3,000 people. Palisade, which sits on the western slope of the sunny Grand Valley region, gets a whopping 290 days of sunshine per year, making it an excellent — if not unexpected — wine region. Plum Creek Winery produces a deliciously fruity merlot and an award-winning Riesling featuring hints of peach and fig. The barn-turned-tasting room, with its redwood tasting bar and cozy couches, has rustic charm, as does the seven-and-a-half-foot rooster made of farm equipment by a local artist. A number of other wineries are situated nearby, where wine lovers can experience Palisade’s increasingly popular Rieslings, Syrahs, and Cabernet Francs.'
So, raise your wine glass and salute. Here's to you Palisade!
