There are over 3,100 whitewater river miles in the state of Idaho. Our story started on the Middle Fork of the Salmon and has had many meanderings through just a fraction of those thousands of miles. Marshall was a river guide and Hailey was a guest on a trip, we both love the river, and we both love Idaho.
The sparkling wine we make is a tribute and thanks to the whitewater that has shaped our story. We strive to make a wine as alive as the rivers that inspire it.
Did you hear the news?! We have been named the 2018 Idaho Winery to Watch by Great Northwest Wines and Wine Press Northwest. We are so excited and honored to be in a little bit of the wine spotlight. Check out the full article here, and the other great stories about wine in the PNW.
100% Bitner Vineyards Chardonnay fermented dry and then bottled with additional sugar and yeast for a secondary fermentation in bottle. A true “methode traditionale” sparkling wine made in Idaho, with Idaho fruit, by Idahoans to boot! Riddled by hand, disgorged by hand, and finished with just a hint of sweetness. Very fine bubbles and a cheerful yellow hue with tart apple, juicy pear flavors, and fresh brioche.
100% Bitner Vineyards Syrah fermented dry and then bottled with additional sugar and yeast for a secondary fermentation in bottle. A true “methode traditionale” sparkling wine made in Idaho, with Idaho fruit, by Idahoans to boot. Aged sur lees for 26 months, riddled by hand, disgorged by hand, and finished completely dry. Very fine bubbles in the glass with a light pale dried apple skin. Dusty raspberry aromas with a hint of rosehip tea. Apricot, pear, and sandalwood flavors are enhanced by the fine bubbles on the palate.
The most sure way to get ahold of some 3100 wines, is to “get on the boat” and join our club. We make a very limited amount of wine each year and always give first dibs to our wine club members. If we don’t sell out to our club we also have an email list you can get on to make sure you know when we have wine available. We think you should always have some bubbles to toast all the adventures in your life.
Drop us a line, call us and let us know where you enjoyed a bottle of our wine, we love hearing from you.
