Terroir


The foundation of Canyon Wind Cellars is a river bench filled with loose cobblestones, sand, and mineral-rich soil, a combination which provides the vineyards with ideal growing conditions for award-winning grape production. The finest wine growing regions in the world share this same foundation, but they do not share in the dramatic cliffs that tower over the stunning Colorado River, channeling the cool mountain breeze over the vineyards of Canyon Wind Cellars.

Perched at 4,710 feet above sea level, Canyon Wind Cellars enjoys a high altitude growing location without a significantly cooler climate or a drastically reduced growing season that often comes with higher elevation vineyards. Indeed, Canyon Wind Cellars is unique in its location and in the wines it creates.
