Award Winning Wines with a Pedigree
Talon Winery is known for classic style, fruit-forward wines made from the finest grapes available. Our methods preserve and enhance the flavors that develop naturally in grapes grown in Western Colorado’s high desert arid climate and mineral-rich soils.
Talon’s founder Glenn Foster carries on a family reputation established at Sonoma Valley’s renowned Ravenswood Winery, reliably producing wines that are outstanding whether enjoyed on their own or paired with a variety of cuisines.
Our vision is to marry Sonoma expertise with the vitality of the Colorado wine industry. We make local wines of the highest quality, brimming with the exuberance and taste that wine enthusiasts want to enjoy now.
“Our goal is to share the joy of wine by offering wine lovers hand-crafted wines of the highest quality at a reasonable price” – Glenn Foster
Our winemaking team is completely focused on creating authentically crafted wines that show great varietal character. For us, that means starting with the best grapes available.
Our winemaking techniques are somewhat proprietary, but we can share a few insights. First, we ferment our white wines cold to retain as much of the fruity aromas and flavors as we can in the finished wine. This requires a chilling system and tanks with heat exchangers.
For our reds, we ferment at warmer temperatures to extract the deep, rich flavors we want from the skins before pressing.
To learn more about our winemaking, please call ahead to arrange a tour. All our wines, including Talon, St. Kathryn’s and Meadery of the Rockies, are made at the same production facility located at 3701 G Road. We look forward to seeing you soon!
