Wine Away the Days of Idaho Wine Month

June is Idaho Wine month and July transitions us into Washington Wine month. North Central Idaho borders Washington on the western side and when two border communities are home to wineries, we’re more than happy to celebrate both!

North Central Idaho is home to the newest American Viticultural Area, the Lewis-Clark Valley AVA, formed in 2016. Home to seven wineries (and growing) and accompanied by three more in this region, this is the place to visit, relax, and sip your way through the area.
