At Snake River Winery, not only are our wines hand-crafted, but so is our vineyard. Along with a personal drive to create and be inspired by our unique vineyard, the health of our vines is one of our top priorities. We begin the growing season hand pruning all 75 acres of vines. Throughout the growing season we are in the vineyard, caring for our plants by removing over abundant fruit, opening up the canopies to sunlight, and trimming excess growth. These techniques help ensure the consistent quality of our wines. We also strive for sustainable and organic vineyard management practices including composting pomace for fertilizer, eliminating harmful pesticides, using organic fungicide and a goal of biodynamic certification. From vine to barrel to bottle the wine never leaves our estate ensuring our hands are the only hands that craft your wine.
