Idaho Wine Country

There are nearly 70 vineyards and wineries in Idaho.[/caption]People have a tendency to think “potato” when it comes to Idaho - and that’s just fine. We’re proud of our potatoes - but you’re missing a bet if you’re not also thinking “wine.”

We’ve been growing wine grapes for nearly 100 years, now, and our rich, volcanic soil allows our vineyards to produce a diverse variety of quality wines. Great wine begins with great soil and Idaho's vintners consistently craft award-winning wines in styles ranging from classics like Merlots, Cabernet Sauvignons, and Chardonnays to lesser known varieties such as Tempranillos, Viogniers, and MourvĂ©dres.
