Overview

Quite simply, WineTrails of Idaho is the most comprehensive guidebook to the wineries of the Gem State. It's fresh, it's new, and it's thorough. In it, wineries open to the public are grouped into easy-to-experience WineTrails. Trekking from tasting rooms reminiscent of French Gothic churches, with vaulted ceilings and stained-glass windows, to those ensconced in restored farmhouses, you will learn firsthand why Idaho wines get rave reviews.

Join Northwest author Steve Roberts as he guides you through memorable wine tours from the Idaho panhandle to the southwestern pare of the state. The guide features four unique WineTrails, more than 30 wineries, dozens of stunning photographs, and easy-to-follow maps and directions to make your touring easy. Most WineTrails can be experienced in a day or two; others require a long weekend. Profiles of each winery include a description of the winery, the winemaker's philosophy, winery hours, and contact information. Bonus material includes tasting-room etiquette, wine tasting 101, descriptions of common Idaho grape varieties, and tips for decoding an Idaho wine label. Take along this guide and read aloud as you uncork, swirl, and sip your way along Idaho's WineTrails!
