Colter’s Creek, the small river that flows past our vines, was named by Lewis and Clark to honor John Colter, a reliable tracker and trusted member of their expedition. Colter went on to become a true mountain man and an enduring American legend.

His is most renowned for a single epic story of survival. While trapping along the Missouri River, John Colter was met by a band of Blackfeet warriors, stripped naked, and forced to flee for his life. After seeking refuge from his trackers under a beaver dam, surviving on breadroot alone, and spending 7 days naked in the blistering sun, Colter arrived at Lisa’s Fort some 300 miles later. He had endured the unimaginable, and his legend lives on today.

In 2007, our love of Earth & Wine...

led us to purchase an abandoned vineyard in Juliaetta, Idaho and it has become our life.

Our lives have been cultivated by the wine we make - quality & joyful.

We dedicate ourselves to cultivating the best grapes that the vintage allows.

The Bounty

The grapes are carefully harvested by hand, one cluster at a time.
