Idaho's wine industry was born in our Northern Region. As early as the late 19th century, vineyards covered the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley. For decades, the vines produced award-winning, internationally-recognized wines. Then came Prohibition, halting the growing success of the region's industry.
In the past few decades, several vineyards have been established in the region with hopes of reviving a once thriving industry. Wineries from the North-Central region are once again turning out award-winning wines from premium grapes grown in the valley.
