When most wine lovers stop and think about wine country in the western part of the United States of course Napa Valley comes to mind. Napa is renowned for its premium wines and beautiful scenery. Of course for those looking for new wines and new places then maybe a trip to Nampa may just be the answer. This area in the canyon country of Idaho is growing quickly with a boom that now has 40 wineries operating in the region.
Idaho is more than just potatoes and wine lovers should grab their four bottle wine totes, carriers, & bags and head to the area looking for new wines to bring home in them. While the region may never be the equal to Napa Valley it is quickly matching areas in Washington and Oregon both in production and in how they are so accessible to guests who want to experience more than just a bottle of wine.
If you are planning a spring or summer wine vacation then consider heading off the beaten path to experience a wine region that is growing when other areas are experiencing economic troubles.
