I smile as I take in a glass of wine at the community table at The Kitchen Next Door. Somehow the wine has captured those nuances of flavor that arise from Colorado’s unique terroir.
The wine I am savoring is a Riesling from the Jack Rabbit Hill Winery located in western Colorado’s North Fork Valley. With each sip I find the natural residual sweetness and the crisp, refreshing acidity that should be present in a wine from a winery that is just around the corner from a Jonathan Apple Orchard.
As I finish off my glass, I peer once again at the wall of Colorado wines and beers on tap at The Kitchen Next Door and wonder where else in town I would be able to taste Colorado’s diverse terroir in a glass. The Kitchen Next Door provides its customers with a real tasting of the the spectacular wines and beers of Colorado communities, each one capturing a different piece of Colorado’s terroir.
