The Lewis-Clark Valley is the newest American Viticultural Area in Idaho and Washington. Winemakers are using locally grown wine grape varietals to craft bold, award-winning, premium wine. Visit and taste the difference....after all, we've been doing it since 1872.

Cabernet Sauvignon: Old World Grape in the New World

The premier Lewis-Clark Valley Wine Festival toasts our heritage variety, Cabernet Sauvignon. The 3-day celebration features winery events, Riedel glassware presentation, wine and history seminar, and the winemaker’s signature dinner event. Meet with Lewis-Clark Valley AVA producers and winemakers as they highlight their wines paired beautifully with eclectic eats throughout the weekend.









That's what you'll find when visiting the wineries of the Lewis-Clark Valley. We're easygoing about most things, except the quality of our wine. That, we take seriously.
