Welcome to Idaho wine country! Known for its breathtaking wilderness and, perhaps more famously, for its potatoes, Idaho is also home to a fast growing wine industry and award-winning wines. Nestled between the Rocky Mountains and the Snake River, Idaho wine regions nurture the grapes with a moderate climate, limited precipitation, and a consistent growing season that add complexity to the grapes. Idaho is know for growing and producing vinifera varieties such as Syrah and Viognier and classic varietals including Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Riesling.

Snake River Valley American Viticultural Area Approved in April 2007, the Snake River Valley was Idaho’s first designated American Viticultural Area (AVA). The AVA is located in Southwestern Idaho and features the largest density of vineyards and winteries in the state. The area encompasses more than 8,000 square miles at latitudes comparable to many famous wine regions around the world (43º-46º). Formed more than four million years ago, the Snake River Valley overlays the ancient Lake Idaho bed, which creates its natural boundaries. The result is a distinnctive grape growing region whose ancient volcanic sediment have bestowed fertile, welldraining soils that give growers better control throughout the

It wasn’t until 1970 that wine grapes were again Valley, planted in Idaho, along the Snake River Valley, and Idaho wines began to emerge. The Idaho wine industry boasts nearly 1,600 acres of vinifera grapes, harvesting 3,000 tons and producing 200,000 cases in 2010. Idaho’ Idaho’ss cold winters and long, warm summer days, allow for an ideal growing season, producing grapes with good structure and balance.

grape-growing process. More imporantly, this soil contributes to a unique terroir that - in the hands of talented winemakers - consistently delivers premium wines that are as memorable as they are delicious.


Idaho Wine History Well we better start with the beginning. Idaho is considered, by some, part of the new frontier of wine-growing areas in the United States, however the first grapes planted in the Pacific Northwest were actually grown in Lewiston in 1864.

industry down.” An article dated September 5, 1865 in the Idaho Statesman reported that a vineyard of Royal Muscadine cuttings had been planted early in the spring of the previous year (1864) and it had survived the winter well and was beginning to produce grapes. Robert Wing,

John Thorngate, formerly a professor at the University of Idaho, now Applications Chemist, Research and Development, Constellation Wines U.S. says, “in Idaho we’re the oft-forgotten “other” state in the Pacific Northwest. Which is rather ironic, considering that the first wineries in the Pacific Northwest were located in Idaho, and that Idaho had a nationally renowned wine industry until Prohibition, as in other regions, closed the

FACTS F ACTS Valley It was in the Snake River V alley that Idaho’s Idaho’s first American Viticulture Viticulture Area (AVA) (A AVA A) was approved in April 2007. Wine grapes were planted in Idaho before they were planted in Washington Washington or Oregon.

The first wineries in the Pacific Northwest were located in Northern Idaho.


who has a vineyard in Lewiston, ID, researched and authored an article on the “History of Wine in Lewiston” for the Nez Perce Historical Society in 1990. Grapes were introduced into the Clearwater Valley by 1872 and thanks to the pioneering efforts of two French, Louis Desol and Robert Schleicher, and one German immigrant, Jacob Schaefer, the region rapidly became known for its wines. Schleicher was most successful, taking a number of gold medals for his wines at expositions in Omaha, Buffalo, St. Louis and Portland.” Thorngate concludes his assessment with, “I think that in a few years people could well be scrambling to find a bottle of wine produced in this ‘other’ state.” The Frenchmen and the German, planted grapes in Idaho before any were planted in Washington or Oregon. They were winning awards around the country before Prohibition took a debilitating toll on the industry and brought production to an absolute halt.

FACTS F ACTS Wine grapes are called V Vinifera inifera grapes.

In 2002 there were 1 11 1 wineries in Idaho. Today, To oday, it’s it’s home to more than 45, with 1,600 acres of grapes planted.

The Idaho wine industry has a $73 million dollar impact according to a 2008 economic study and created nearly 625 jobs. Idaho wines have been discovered across the country ranking 22nd in the nation.

National prohibition, which followed state prohibition in 1916 and lasted until 1933, took its toll on the wine regions, its growers and makers, and it wasn’t until 1970 that wine grapes were again planted in Idaho, this time along the Snake River Valley in the southern part of the state where most of the state’s wineries are located. It was in the Snake River Valley that Idaho’s first American Viticulture Area (AVA) was approved in April 2007. The immense size is a great advantage, allowing for tremendous growth. The approval of the AVA was a vast undertaking and has truly helped propel the industry, gaining attention around the world. From a purely geographical standpoint, area vintners insist, both Northern and Southern Idaho offers ideal growing conditions. Vinifera, or wine grapes, actually thrive in this distinctly four-season climate. The characteristic cold winters, which might at first seem a disadvantage, are in fact quite conducive, allowing vines


to go dormant, to rest and conserve important carbohydrates for the coming season, while ridding the plants of bugs and discouraging disease. In addition, the region’s summer combination of cold nights and warm days serves to balance grape acids and sugars favorably. In the 30º-40º diurnal temperature variations typical of this higher elevation—swings from 1º to 65º are common—sugars remain high, nurtured during the long day by the abundant sunshine, while acids are maintained at favorable levels by comparatively cool evenings. These natural acids, important for the wine’s taste and longevity, can be difficult to maintain in, for example, the warmer California climate. Adequate sugar, on the other hand, is often the obstacle in Oregon, where early rains absorbed by the grapes and vines in the final stages of ripening dilute the fruit’s natural levels of the substance. Because such potentially ruinous precipitation is also responsible for assorted other agricultural woes, including mold and rot, the Snake River Valley’s lack of rainfall is considered a plus; here, water is one element that can be controlled by the grower through irrigation, according to calculated timing.

The Idaho wine industry has been a steadily growing community for the last 30 years with remarkable growth in the past decade. With 11 wineries in 2002, Idaho is now home to over 40, with 1,600 acres of grapes planted. In order to see the impact Idaho wine industry is having, the Idaho Wine Commission worked with Boise State University to create an economic impact story. The results were startling. It was concluded that the Idaho wine industry had a $73 million dollar impact in 2008 and created nearly 625 jobs. This growth led to an increase in visibility, more tourism, an enhanced reputation, and has created tremendous opportunity for expansion. The industry will continue to grow as national wine consumption increases, as well as Idaho’s grape growing potential. Idaho wines have been discovered across the country ranking 22nd in the nation. The Idaho wine industry is just in its infancy and is expected to see remarkable growth in the next 15 years. It is just coming into its own, receiving a great deal of recognition, and winemakers and growers are learning as they go while making great wine along the way.
