If you have never experienced the portales, please do. We are open all year round, 12-5 Daily, and we are always delighted to share the beauty and the wines with visitors.

Tastings are $10/person and include four wine selections.

No reservations necessary. But if you know you are headed our way, we love a quick call at (970)-565-0825 or email to let us know to expect you. Or better yet, make an appointment!


Head south out of Cortez on Hwy 491. After 2 miles take a right on Road G at the traffic light marked Hovenweep National Monument and airport. After 13.8 miles there is a sign on the left marked Sutcliffe Vineyards. We are immediately following the parking lot for the Canyon of the Ancients trailhead.
