A hobby begun in the early 1980s turned into a family business for Bill and Anita Donahue and their son, Tim. Anita and her Italian family cultivated the Donahue's deep appreciation for the sharing of wine and food with family and friends. Creekside Cellars became a bonded Colorado limited winery in 1996. We opened our doors to the public in 2000, the day after Thanksgiving, and in 2002 we planted our own vineyard in Palisade, Colorado, called Vinelands.

More than a winery, Creekside Cellars doubles as an Italian café featuring an outdoor deck overhanging Bear Creek. We pride ourselves in offering excellent wine and food to share among good people. Creekside is a special destination for a lunch of panini sandwiches…or to linger over one of our famous antipasto platters with a bottle of wine and the company of friends and loved ones.
