Planted in 1998, on what was once an apple orchard, Parma Ridge Vineyard's vines were selected for Idaho's long, warm summer days and cool nights. The vineyard is planted with Merlot, Chardonnay, Syrah, Gew├╝rztraminer, Viongier and a small block of Zinfandel. The unique layout of Parma Ridge allows the varietals preferring a cooler climate, such as the Gew├╝rtztraminer, to be planted on a northeast slope, while the red varietals are planted in the warmer sections of the vineyard. Due to the cold winters that control insect populations, all vines are planted on their own roots, thereby preserving the true varietal flavor of the grape.
The vineyards and winery are located on 9.5 acres at an elevation of 2400 feet, overlooking the Boise River in Parma, Idaho. All Parma Ridge wines are produced and bottled at the winery on site, allowing the grapes to be processed within a very short time of harvest.Parma Ridge Vineyards is owned and operated by Dick and Shirley Dickstein. Dick is the winemaker and Shirley handles design and marketing.

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.
