Idaho Wines?

Submitted by on January 21, 2013 – 7:59 amNo Comment

Southwest Idaho keeps a secret most wine lovers are desperate to hear. The naturally abundant Snake River Valley is home to more than 16 wineries and 1400 acres of vineyards.

It has been designated an American Viticultural Area, making it one of the country’s more significant wine growing regions. This is a piece of the United States making a name for itself slowly, but surely.

Your Own Itinerary: Take some time with friends or family to travel the vineyards at your own pace. Stay in Boise at one of the beautiful B&B’s and take day trips to any of the picturesque vineyards, including award winning choices such as Bitner Vineyards, 3 Horse Ranch Vineyards or Snake River Winery.

Group Tastings: During the summer and harvest season there are many opportunities to visit the vineyards for concerts, tastings, and seasonal celebrations. You can sign up for a tour with one of Idaho’s wine tour companies, like Idaho Winery Tours.

Expert Advice: Most of Idaho’s wineries are small and bottles haven’t yet made it to shelves outside of local liquor stores. So, stock up while you are there and take some home to share.
