If you look at a map, it's hard to see why Idaho wouldn't grow wine grapes about as well as eastern Washington. Until recently, it wasn't close, except geographically. Today, better viticulture, an influx of talent, and global warming are contributing to an increasingly interesting Idaho wine scene.
Having visited wine regions around the world, I believe Washington State is one of the most exciting you’ll find, located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Washington boasts an interesting history, has a perfect climate for grapes, produces many varieties into award-winning wines, and offers many regions to explore.
