Creston provides a breath of fresh air for wine lovers. Serene tasting excursions complement the down-home cowboy feel. Scenic meadows and vineyards merge with ranches to create a unique setting for enjoying the area's Italian, Bordeaux and Rhone varietals. A long growing season, hot days and cool nights create fruit-forward, juicy red wines. Supplement all that wine tasting with a few slices of beef tri-tip, a local menu favorite, found mostly at any nearby watering hole. Be sure to try Creston's homegrown olive oil, too; it's perfect when paired with a little bread, glass of wine and simple country sunset.
