We visited Sutcliffe Vineyards and met John Sutcliffe. He was very friendly and made us feel at home. Very nice staff and the Chardonnay and Reiling was awesome. If you are around, stop by and do some wine tasting.

Excellent wine and a very friendly host (Don). We are going to Mesa Verde this fall and plan to visit the vinyard north of Cortez. It is unusual to find such exceptional wine from such a small vinyard.More
