You'd never confuse northwestern Colorado with the south of France, but when it comes to winemaking, Palisade is the state's Bordeaux. Three-quarters of the state's premium wine grape vineyards are located here. Near-perfect terrain and climate foster the growth of quality varieties of chardonnay, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, sauvignon blanc, and reisling grapes. Palisade is more famous for its peaches, honored annually during the Palisade Peach Festival. Local orchards also produce sweet and sour cherries, apricots, plums, pears, and apples. Palisade was named after the starkly dramatic Mancos Shale north of town. The region was settled in 1881 but orchards weren't established until 1894. Northwest of town is Litde Bookcliffs Wild Horse Area, one of only three areas in the western U.S. devoted to wild horse herds. The Colorado River flows past Palisade's Riverbend Park, home to more than 150 resident and migratory species of birds.
