If you’ve been to Huston, you know we are crazy about Malbec. Our Malbec has been a shining star in our Snake River Valley Series, consistently winning awards in competitions in Idaho and throughout the US. Malbec is a varietal that grows very well in the Snake River Valley AVA and is gaining momentum year by year.
You can learn about the history of Malbec in our blog post or purchase our Malbec online.
