Founded in 2004, education paved the path to success for Clearwater Canyon Cellars. Coco, the winemaker, earned a PhD in wine science. Karl, the vineyard manager, earned a MS in soils and worked for many years in agricultural research. The Clearwater Canyon team approaches grape growing, wine making and customer service with thoughtfulness, authenticity, and sustainability.
Named 2015 Idaho Winery of the Year and 2020 Winery of the Year by Wine Press Northwest, Clearwater Canyon continues to prove that hard work and the dedication to the science of wine pays off.
The winery is located on the Umiker’s Idaho Century farm and is home to their Umiker Estate Vineyard. The tasting room and patio offer a laid-back atmosphere with a view into the barrel room and vineyard. Visit Clearwater Canyon Cellars Tuesday-Saturday, 12pm-5pm or by appointment!
