Creekside Vineyards, Preemption, Illinois

Creekside Vineyards Front Porch Traminette

We recently planned a trip to visit some wineries on the Northern Illinois Wine Trail, but, unfortunately, we only ended up visiting one, Creekside Vineyards. The business was started in 2006; today the winery and tasting room are located in a historic 1940’s building on Hwy 67, in Preemption, IL (great name for a town). Also part of the endeavor is the Creekside Vineyards Inn, a bed and breakfast with the winery's seasonal terrace -- when we visited, they were offering wine tasting and live music. It's a beautiful location, with the Inn surrounded by the winery's vineyards. They also source grapes from other Illinois wineries.

Tasting notes for the Front Porch Traminette NV: Lemon yellow in color; muskmelon and lemon aromas; melon, gooseberry and lemon flavors; medium mouthfeel; lingering finish.
