Join us at the signature event for the New Vintage Festival -- the annual Tailgate Party. We will be offering some amazing wines to sample including our newly released 2012 Cabernet Rose, 2011 Sauvignon Blanc and 2010 Laura's Red. This amazing event features 30 wineries and a gaggle of local chefs all nestled into a scenic Niagara Vineyard. Tickets can be purchased through the festival office or online at www.niagarawinefestival.com.
Our culinary comrades [Chef J. Mark Hand from Feastivities and Beth McIntee from Sweetie Pie's Bakery] are teaming up to bring the proud tradition of the Supper Club to Creekside. Our Sunday Supper Clubs will be a harvest seated, 4 course dinner featuring local cuisine and Creekside wine in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Upon arrival, you will be treated to a four wine tasting flight at the winery bar, then the Chef’s along with the crew at Creekside will take you through an amazing farm—to—table dining experience, all under the winery’s covered deck overlooking the vineyards and tranquil pond! The evening will also feature live music from local musicians. For the 2013 season, Feastivities and Sweetie Pie’s bakery will be offering four amazing culinary journeys:
- June 23: Cherishing Niagara Cherries. A sweet and savoury journey highlighting on of Niagara’s most sought-after tender fruits. Chef Hand and Beth will explore the amazing range of flavours that cherries can contribute to dinner.
- July 21: Savour Summer Stone Fruit. From apricots and peaches to nectarines and plums, Mark and Beth showcase the amazing entrées, sauces, sides, and baked treats that stone fruits from Niagara orchards can add to the table.
- Aug 18: Heirloom Tomato-Fest. We celebrate the return of tomato diversity to Niagara’s gardens. Heirloom varieties are back and offer the delightful range of flavour and colours to the plate.
- Sept 15: The Niagara Harvest. Harvest time at the winery is an amazing time of year. We take a look at the incredible bounty that Niagara gives us for the fall in the form of amazing plates and sumptuous pies.
For two weekends in June Creekside is offering a fresh start to summer, Chef Hand’s house smoked salmon rillette served with ‘Niagara marmalade’ on herbed crostini.
This delicious dish is then perfectly paired with some great fresh wines, our 2011 Sauvignon Blanc and new 2012 Cabernet Rosé. Part of the Niagara Wine Festival Discovery Pass program.
