Going For Gold!
Wow! What an exciting week at Huston Vineyards! The Idaho Wine Competition was held on Tuesday and industry judges really had a palette for Huston Vineyards Wine. We were humbled and elated to find that 6 wines in the Huston Vineyards Snake River Valley Series and Chicken Dinner Series received Gold Medals! The judges came from as far away as North Carolina, Indiana and California and included a Master Sommelier, wine writers, restaurant wine directors and wine shop owners. It’s exciting for us to see the national industry interest in Idaho Wines.
Here is the recap:
- 2X GOLD | 2017 Chicken Dinner White (only 2 awarded in the competition)
- BEST IN CLASS, GOLD | 2017 Chicken Dinner Rosé
- GOLD | 2015 Huston Vineyards Merlot
- GOLD | 2016 Huston Vineyards Malbec

Chicken Dinner Red Release Party
Saturday, September 8
We have a fun day planned with the release of our 2017 Chicken Dinner Red. Join us as we uncork this new vintage between 12-5 pm. Musician Douglas Cameron will join us as well as food available from Willowcreek Grill.
We had so much fun last year raising money to help Houston Texas rebuild from Hurricane Harvey that we wanted to help a little closer to home this year. Hunger is a serious issue in the Treasure Valley. We are raising funds for the Idaho Foodbank Backpack’s for Kids program. All profits from our wine bar and corn hole tournament will go toward providing backpacks. We will also accept donations on behalf of the Idaho Foodbank that day for the program.
The Backpack for Kids program provides over 2600 kids weekend food support during the school year. There are currently 350 kids on the waiting list. We would like to help as many kids on the Treasure Valley as possible. Practice your corn hole skills and join on Saturday, September 8th.
Capital City Market
We are at the Capital City Market for just 1 more month. Stop by and try our wines in front of Pie Hole on 8th in Boise
