Make the Drive to Creekside Cellars

I’m sharing a blog entry by D Vine Girl, Amanda, who recently interviewed winemaker Michelle Cleveland of Evergreen’s Creekside Cellars.

Nearly every time we entertain out-of-town guests, we take the drive up to Evergreen and stop at Creekside. the wine is innovative, especially for Colorado grapes, and food is truly amazing. I’m a disciple of flourless chocolate tortes and Creekside has a fabulous dessert called Chocolate Pâté. Swirling a nibble of the chocolate in your mouth with a sip of the winery’s robusto, tempranillo or cab franc is totally worth the gas money to get up there! I recently tried their gewürztraminer on a hot, sunny afternoon: Sweet, effervescent and refreshing!

The winery also boasts bountiful antipasto plates, served on gorgeous wooden platters. It’s a small joint but you’re welcome to grab a glass and stand at the pouring counter or sit at a table in the front. You’ll see in Amanda’s interview that the gold star seating is in the back on a deck overlooking the creek.

Take a trip up to Creekside, and even consider going in the winter!
