Discover the Majestic Snake River Valley Wine Region

For those that are adventure seekers and have passion for the outdoors, you are going to absolutely fall heals over head in the burgeoning Snake River Valley wine region, located just about 30 minutes from downtown Boise, Idaho.

There’s wineries in Idaho? Yep, today there’s over 50 wineries scattered throughout the state of Idaho, but you’ll find most of them clustered around two grape-growing regions. Today, we’re going to open your mind to exploring the Snake River Valley region that is quickly gaining notoriety from famous west coast winemakers.

You will not have any shortages of options when to comes to wine tasting (downtown or out in the vineyards), a wide range of lodging and accommodations and sumptuous places to eat.

With daily flights on Alaska / Horizon Airlines from many of the major west coast hubs (flights as low as $69 round trip from Seattle or Oakland), you can make it an extended weekend getaway and leave plenty of budget to haul some wine home for the holidays. And remember, wine flies for free on Alaska Airlines!

 

Local Insider's Tip

What we absolutely love this region is that you have down-to-earth people, producing stellar wines and an active nightlife that allows you to keep the party going long after the sun sets. The downtown Boise food scene is spectacular, the accommodations deliver a level of hospitality that will exceed even the most discerning guest folk.
