Holesinsky’s Vineyard and Winery—the first of a growing trend in Idaho’s organic vineyards and wineries—was created by winemaker James Holesinsky to honor of his father Frank’s lifelong dream. Holesinsky’s Vineyard and Winery began in 2001 with the planting of 1000 chardonnay. In 2002 the vineyard grew with the addition of 3000 syrah, 2000 Merlot, and 200 Port (Sauzao, Tiuta Cao, Touragia); the growth continued in 2006 with 1000 Cabernet Sauvignon, 1000 Riesling, and adding Muscat in 2007.
With a love for his product, a dedication to his family, a wide comprehension of wine quality, chemistry, and farming, James Holesinsky has become more than a lab rat or a wine socialite. He has developed into a true artist; creating wines that please the palate and challenge the standards of wine lovers everywhere.
The mission of Holesinsky’s Vineyard is to create world class wine with no short cuts, impurities, over processing, filtering, additives, or new oak. All of Holesinsky’s wines are made using certified USDA organic grapes.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
