Idaho’s Food and Wine Festival
Sunday, June 12, 2016
It’s early in the season but it’s the
perfect time for thinking ahead. Idaho’s Premier Food and Wine Festival is on the horizon.
Be sure to get your tickets early in
March so you don’t miss out.
STE. CHAPELLE WINERY
Ste. Chapelle Winery is the original and largest winery in Idaho. Started by Dick Symms in 1976, owner of one of the largest fruit ranches in Idaho, it has become an Idaho Winery Icon.
As you drive through the impressive gates and up the long dirt road you notice the chapel like structure built on top of the hill overlooking acres of vineyards below it. As you stop and gaze out at the view of the Snake River Valley you wonder how can it be so beautiful! You just want to linger awhile.
Step inside the structure with its’ cathedral ceilings and stained glass windows, modeled after King Louis the IX during the 13th century when he had his court chapel built, you are in awe!
Ste. Chapelle is known for its Rieslings. However, they have one of the largest selections of wines in Idaho. They have a wine for everyone from dry wines to sweet. As you stroll around the tasting room sipping wine, you might just find a great little gift to take with you.
Be sure to stop by and visit. Don’t miss out on a piece of history!
