Maison La Belle Vie (French for "House of Beautiful Life") was planted 8 years ago. The first vintages from the estate winery, were introduced in 2006 and included Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Rosé and Muscat; a dessert wine that is traditional in the Loire Valley in France. Maison la Belle Vie has now added 3 Reserve wines, a Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot all aged for 4 years as well as the famous Vin de Peche; a Muscat, fortified with peaches - a recipe from John's family that has been handed down through the generations since the late 1800's. A new addition is a hand crafted walnut liquor that is simply delicious.

Most wineries want to get you in, get your tasting done and get you out. That's fine if you're in a hurry. Here, you're invited to hang a while. You get your tastes in, decide what you'd like a glass or bottle of, and even order a lovely charcuterie platter. You can sit at the large community table inside, or... More

We stopped here to try some more traditional style wine. We liked the Rose', but the Port style wasn't something we liked. The vineyard has a great atmosphere and a beautiful patio to sit among the grape vines and enjoy a glass.

Grounds were beautiful and chatting with other visitors was great, but I have a hard time overlooking the staff's lackadaisical attitude. First host was an Aussie and provided little knowledge about the grapes or processes. Second host was pleasant but when asked about how Ports were fortified she was a t a loss of words. I jokingly asked if they... More

A bid board full of meats, cheeses, crackers and olives with a basket of bread and butter with homemade spread contocted with apples and peaches. We also had a... More

I think this winery had the largest number of wines to try. There were a ton, and they were good. The interior and grounds are beautiful.

My husband and I had a fabulous wine tasting at Maison la Belle Vie Winery. The facility is inviting both inside and outside. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. They were happy to spend a bit of time with us and answer questions. I work at a winery in CO that also uses grapes from Palisade. It was fun to... More
