Palisade will host “Pig Tails & Wine Trails” - free art & wine tours – on Sunday, March 15, from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM. The tour includes several of Palisade’s art galleries, studios, and wineries. Guests can start their tour at the Blue Pig Gallery in downtown Palisade, where self-guided tour maps will be available.
Each participating winery showcases a selection of wines including red, white and varietals, and award-winning wines. The Meadery of the Rockies offers an assortment of meads (honey wine). Participating art galleries and studios give visitors a unique perspective, reflective of the area. Guests are encouraged to visit with each artist and see his/her works.
The first ten people to arrive at the Blue Pig Gallery receive free wine glasses. Free appetizers will be available at each business. Wineries on this tour will extend a 15 percent discount on select wines.
“A visit to Palisade is worth the drive itself,” said Palisade Chamber of Commerce Director, Leif Johnson. “Guests will not only enjoy visits to art galleries, studios, and wineries, but a tour through Palisade’s beautiful orchards and vineyards with the Book Cliffs and Grand Mesa as their backdrop.”
