On the slope of a valley carved by the majestic Snake River, sits the Arena Valley Vineyard. Southwestern Idaho's ancient riverbeds provide the unique cobbled soil that allows us to grow a diverse range of grape varietals. This combined with our elevation and consistent hot, dry summers give us the climate of old-world wine growing regions such as the Rhone Valley (Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre), the Douro Valley (Tempranillo, Touriga), Austria (Blauer Zweigelt), and Northern Italy (Barbera). The sand and river rock naturally restrict the vines' growth producing small grapes with intense and concentrated flavors. Inspired by our passion for traditional wine making and viticulture, quality over quantity is always emphasized on our 75 acres.
At Snake River Winery, not only are our wines hand-crafted, but so is our vineyard. Along with a personal drive to create and be inspired by our unique vineyard, the health of our vines is one of our top priorities. We begin the growing season hand pruning all 75 acres of vines. Throughout the growing season we are in the vineyard, caring for our plants by removing over abundant fruit, opening up the canopies to sunlight, and trimming excess growth. These techniques help ensure the consistent quality of our wines. We also strive for sustainable and organic vineyard management practices including composting pomace for fertilizer, eliminating harmful pesticides, using organic fungicide and a goal of biodynamic certification. From vine to barrel to bottle the wine never leaves our estate ensuring our hands are the only hands that craft your wine. As owners of Snake River Winery and Arena Valley Vineyard we believe sharing food and wine should not be reserved for special occasions. Wine should be enjoyed year-round. We started the winery in 2000, with the mission to produce affordable, delicious, food-friendly varietal and blended wines. We believed then, as we do now, that we have found the perfect place to accomplish this goal.
