Great Day in the Snake River AVA


View from the patio at the tasting room.Clearish, cool, great food and great wines. We started the day at Parma Ridge Winery, here is the Parma Ridge “Bistro” Brunch and if you have not been there for brunch, you need to put it on your bucket list To Do! Awesome brunch, as you can see by looking at the link.
We visited 5 wineries in all and most of them I got photos. Williamson Vineyards, Fujishin Winery, Snake River Vineyards, Hat Ranch Vineyards and Houston Winery. It was great to see the crowds at each of these wineries. Standing room only! And some really good food at each one. The theme was essentially that wine is meant to be consumed with food. And it is. And at Hat Ranch Winery, they had different cheeses that were meant to accompany the specific wine they were serving. Here are some photos from the day. Left Click any of these photos to see them enlarged. Look in the sidebar for a link to these wineries. Happy sipping!
