Wines of Colorado

Wines of Colorado

About

True to its name, the restaurant, tasting room, retail wine sales and gift shop, all do a brisk sip-and-sup business, but while oenophiles can be found sniffing their way around the tasting room, epicureans retire to the wood planked deck or Creekside dining area to feast on towering sandwiches and burgers, including the very popular buffalo wine burger, a juice-dribbling, hand formed patty sky scraped with grilled onions, sautéed mushrooms, and roasted green chilis. Shielded from the sun by wispy willow trees and aromatic pines along the creek, The Wines of Colorado is the perfect place to enjoy your getaway.

Location Description

Nestled at the foot of Pikes Peak in Cascade, Colorado, The Wines of Colorado is an unheralded, romantic oasis and an easy 15 minute drive from downtown Colorado Springs.

History

Marv Parliament gets a twinkle in his eye when he talks about building his business. It was the challenge that he loved. The mechanics of fitting together the right food, atmosphere and location had him intrigued.

As the marketing director of the Pittsburgh Penguins years ago, he remembered a roadside barbecue restaurant that specialized in grilling chicken and burgers outdoors. He wondered how they attracted so many diners. He also remembered an outdoor burger joint near his hometown in Ontario, Canada. People by the droves would park up and down the road and wait in line for a lousy burger. Marv thought about what would happen if you served a good burger? He watched what would become his current location for a few years, as a variety of businesses opened and closed in the old 7-11 building at the turnoff to Pikes Peak Highway in Cascade, Colorado.

When the opportunity presented itself 15 years ago, Marv’s intrigue into opening a roadside restaurant became a reality. What better location than at the foot of America’s Mountain with constant traffic year round. To further enhance the appeal to stop in, Marv was able to offer complimentary wine tasting and the sale of Colorado Wines.
