The Fine Print
About Evergood Elixirs
Wine made from lemons, not grapes! Think adult lemonades.
Ten years ago, Matthew Hexter started making citrus wine. At home, one of his sons saw the yellow liquid fermenting and called it "Skier Pee." The name stuck -- hey, it's Colorado! More importantly, friends asked for sample bottles. And then more bottles. And more bottles. We learned the name Skier Pee may be memorable, but the wine is unforgettable.
Matthew kept experimenting with the wines and Snow Bunny was born. A strawberry lemon wine, most tasters call it "dangerous" and an "adult juice box." Next came Switch Stance, our refreshing lemon-lime wine. It's best described as an "instant margarita." Finally, he created grapefruit wine, Citrus Stomp, which tastes like an "adult Squirt."
Evergood Elixirs, located in Palmer Lake, opened its doors in June 2018. We make small-batch wines that are all 10% ABV, gluten-free, vegan and low in carbs. Once you pop the top, they are good for 2-1/2 to 3 weeks (which is weeks longer than a traditional red or white). Citrus is a natural preservative so our wines have a long shelf life and don't seem to give those nasty red wine headaches. (Ever gotten a lemonade headache?) Our entire family is involved in fermenting, bottling, marketing, deliveries, graphic design, tastings, tours and the best part, product development.
Currently, our wines are available at 200+ Colorado liquor stores, restaurants and bars. We have plans to introduce new flavors and distribute to other states.
Tasters LOVE our wines over ice so at each Tasting and Tour, that's how we'll pour them. Ice just seems to make them sparkle. Bartenders tell us they love our wines in cocktails. Imagine a Pee Sour, Bunny Mimosa, Switch Mojito or a Stompaloma. Whether you pour them in a wine glass, a rocks glass, a copper mule or an insulated tumbler, we think wine should be fun! (And please don't fuss over what to pair them with, either.)
In 2018 Snow Bunny won a silver medal at the prestigious Colorado Wine Governor's Cup. Not to be outdone, Switch Stance won a silver medal at the 2019 Colorado Wine Governor's Cup. Also in 2019 we were awarded the TOP SIPS Winner at the Taste of Golden. We were thrilled to be called "something new in the beverage world" (Denver Westword, July 2019). Most importantly, from the renowned Colorado Mountain WineFest's Grand Tasting (Palisade, Colorado) to the Denver Mac 'n Cheese Fest, organizers have called us "the talk of the event." We appreciate the love for our citrus wines!
When you come to the winery, don't expect snobbery, oak barrels or a Cali vibe. Our winery is set in a quaint Colorado mountain town at 7,200 ft elevation. Do expect delicious samples, a discussion of how citrus wine is made, easy-at-home wine cocktail recipes, mountain views and maybe even a visit from the vintner.
Thanks for considering our Tasting and Tour. Cheers!
