There are over 3,100 whitewater river miles in the state of Idaho. Our story started on the Middle Fork of the Salmon and has had many meanderings through just a fraction of those thousands of miles. Marshall was a river guide and Hailey was a guest on a trip, we both love the river, and we both love Idaho.
The sparkling wine we make is a tribute and thanks to the whitewater that has shaped our story. We strive to make a wine as alive as the rivers that inspire it.
COVID-19 Update - we are able to offer limited tastings at this time. Groups must be under 10 people (sorry no exceptions) and can reach out to schedule a tasting at 208-949-6613.
100% Bitner Vineyards Chardonnay. Aged sur lees for 36 months, riddled by hand, disgorged by hand, and finished with 14g/l sugar. Showcasing the high acidity of this vintage can stand up to a sugar addition and not taste the least bit sweet. Pear compote and apple strudle dominate with pops of fresh white nectarine.
100% Skyline Vineyards Chardonnay. Aged sur lees for 12 months, "pet nat" style (cloudy), and finished with a hint of sugar (4g/l). Fine bubbles, anjou pear and golden apple that climb into a more zippy granny smith and hint of golden raspberries.
100% Bitner Vineyards Chardonnay - bright and slightly golden, a nose of vanilla and honeysuckle with some caramel tones underlying the fresh apple juice aromas, a sip leads with fuji apple, anjou pear, and a traditional apple tart, strong bubbles and a full mouthfeel. This wine is swift and dynamic, like entering 5 mile canyon on the Brunea River.
100% Bitner Vineyards Syrah. Aged sur lees for 22 months, riddled by hand, disgorged by hand, and finished with a hint of sugar (4g/l). Fine and persistent bubbles burst as you inhale giving a zing to the berry compote and strawberry tart aromas. The flavors as you sip develop from cranberry, to red apple.
The most sure way to get ahold of some 3100 wines, is to “get on the boat” and join our club. We make a very limited amount of wine each year and always give first dibs to our wine club members. If we don’t sell out to our club we also have an email list you can get on to make sure you know when we have wine available. We think you should always have some bubbles to toast all the adventures in your life.
Drop us a line, call us and let us know where you enjoyed a bottle of our wine, we love hearing from you.
