Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colorado – Atwater on Gore Creek at the Vail Cascade Resort was recently honored with the 2010 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. The award is designated for wine lists that offer a well-chosen selection of high quality producers, along with a match to the menu in both price and style.

Typically, these lists offer at least 100 selections; Atwater offers more than 285 hand-picked selections ranging from wines by the glass to “celebration” wines such as a 1982 Chateau Mouton Rothschild.-

Atwater on Gore Creek joins only a handful of other distinguished restaurants in Vail in this recognition. Sommelier and Atwater General Manager Adam Lewis worked closely with Executive Chef Adam Votaw to select the offerings.

Also, Atwater on Gore Creek is debuting the new Chef’s Tasting Menu this week. It includes a choice of either three or four courses focusing on locally sourced produce and meats, and food items procured from businesses that utilize sustainable food principals, such as the green olive and pistachio crusted salmon dish. The fish is farm-raised in the Atlantic waters of Scotland’s Northwest Coast.

Additionally, many of the dishes are adorned with herbs from the chef’s garden on the resort’s property, and every diner is offered several selections in each category of appetizer, entree, salad and dessert. The current menu will change slightly to accommodate seasonal availability and customer demand, and is priced at $45 prix fixe for three courses, and $55 for the four course option. The award-winning wine list can be viewed upon request from media contact Kirsten Texler at ktexler@destinationhotels.com.-
