Picking the right spot for your Colorado wedding is an important step in planning for the big day. So why not plan a wine-themed wedding? There are many fantastic wedding venues around Colorado's Wine Country, allowing a bride and groom to celebrate their matrimony while enjoying the romance and prestige of Colorado wine.
So we at the Wine Country Inn are extremely proud that PerfectOutdoorWeddings named us a "Top Five Location for a Vineyard Wedding" in the United States in 2008. This accolade received press coverage at The Denver Post, The Palisade Tribune, The Grand Junction Free Press, Bride.Net and The Business Times of Western Colorado.
We are also pleased that The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel wrote up the award. Under the headline,"Area Inn Gets National Praise For Wedding Site," Sentinel Reporter Anna Maria Basquez wrote:
"Atlanta-based PerfectOutdoorWeddings.com this week ranked Palisade’s Wine Country Inn in the Top 5 Vineyard Wedding Locations in the United States."
"--The inn joins the company of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, California’s Napa and Sonoma regions, Newport, R.I., and the Catskill Mountains region of New York in the listing."
“We’re tickled to death about that,” said Jean Tally, co-owner of Wine Country Inn. “It will help us with the destination-type weddings. People from out of town might not want to go to California or to Martha’s Vineyard.”
"Wine Country Inn, 777 Grande River Drive, is described on the site as having a “dreamy outdoor wedding venue” with a range of outdoor activities for wedding parties, including horseback riding, fishing and hiking. The site describes the facility as “the perfect place for a ‘Cinderella’ wedding.”
"The inn boasts a large, outdoor gazebo with a paved path for an aisle. It has a salon inside and can do the catering on-site."
“We also have what we call an elopement package,” Tally said. “Sometimes brides, if it’s a second wedding and they don’t want a large group, will do a formal wedding with a smaller number of people. The budgeting really depends on what they want.”
