Maison la Belle Vie (French for “House of Beautiful Life”) had its first vintage from the 4.5 acre vineyard in 2006 that included Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and a Vin de Peche made from a Muscat grape aged in peach leaves and peach wood with a slight sweet finish, which is a traditional wine in the Loire Valley, France. Three years later the winery was open to the public and the wait was well worth it.

Our Winemaker’s experience and expertise in winemaking as well as an intimate knowledge of the arid high-desert region of western Colorado has helped in the transition from growing fruit in France, to Colorado. The age-old practice of “dry-farming” is still used today in their vineyard allowing them to achieve maximum results by adding to the complexity and flavor of the fruit.

Maison la Belle Vie Winery respects their vineyard and those who supply them grapes. They strive for a minimalist approach with their wine so the content of the bottle will always reflect an unmanipulated purity for the grape to shine.

In 2011 Maison la Belle Vie added 3 Reserves, a Merlot, Syrah and a Petit Verdot all aged for 4 years and a walnut liquor that is a must have for the port lovers. Maison la Belle Vie (French for “House of Beautiful Life”) is a 4.5 acre vineyard, winery & eatery and wedding & event venue. Growing premium quality grapes such as Marechal Foch and Muscat. Since opening its doors in 2009 Maison la Belle Vie Winery has quickly become the place to be. The winery is currently producing 2500 cases.

Then in 2021, Nicholas and Holly fell in love with the property, with the atmosphere, beauty and wines at Maison La Belle Vie on their first trip down to Palisade from Denver. After joining the wine club and coming down every few months to pick up their wine, they decided to make the leap and acquired the property in 2021. A recent addition is a hand crafted walnut port style wine that is simply delicious.
