Snake River Valley

If you want to REALLY get away from it all, yet still have the option to visit some wineries, the Snake River Valley is for you!

Most of the AVA is located in Idaho (in fact, 90% of Idaho’s vineyards are located in this AVA). This is truly a four season climate, so during the winter months expect cold and snow, which helps keep bad bugs at bay.

The Snake River Valley AVA is in its infancy, and with little tourism in the area (compared to the more popular and populated parts of the Pacific Northwest) it is expected that the Snake River Valley AVA will remain under the radar. (I have not yet experienced a single wine from here.)

There is not much information to be found on this AVA, and you’d be hard pressed to find a wine from here without traveling to the region.
