As Idaho enters Stage 4 or reopening, plenty of events all over the state have been canceled out of caution due to the coronavirus. However, June is Idaho Wine & Cider Month and for the 11th year, celebrations will look different. Even with the rollercoaster of COVID-19, there are still several ways to support your local wineries across the state - and especially around Boise.

Boise’s wineries fall into the Snake River Valley AVA, originally formed in 2007. This AVA is home to both urban and rural winery locations. Luckily, several are located in the area and continue to offer curbside pickup as well as indoor & outdoor seating if you prefer to visit the location. 

Cinder Winery

Located at 107 East 44th Street, Garden City, Idaho, you’ll find reservations available for their indoor tasting experience (with a required $10 fee). You can also take a seat at one of their outdoor tables - bring your flask or buy a bottle to enjoy in the warmer spring weather. Or, if you aren’t ready for that, Cinder is still offering curbside pickup and local delivery. 

Split Rail Winery

Non-traditional wine lovers, or anyone seeking to expand their wine tasting palettes, should place an order with Split Rail Winery. Their tasting room, located at 4338 Chinden Blvd. Garden City ID, is open and complying with CDC guidelines Wednesday through Sunday. They’re also hosting patio happy hours with drink specials during the week! Curbside pickup and online orders do remain an option for those who wish to use them. 

Telaya Wine Co. 

Telaya Wine Co. reopened to the public on May 16th with guidelines to protect the health of staff and visitors. Tables and chairs are set up to promote social distancing and are also open to families. Instead of typical tastings, they’re selling bottles only at the moment until regulations change. Curbside pickup and shipping via FedEx remain available. Telaya Wine Co. is located at 240 E. 32nd St, Garden City, Idaho.

Coiled Wines

With two locations to visit, there’s no reason to miss out during Idaho’s Wine & Cider Month! If you’re planning an in-person visit, book a reservation on their website to guarantee a seat as they work through the reopening process. At the moment, there are no tastings, but sales by the bottle only. Visit the downtown Boise wine bar location or the Garden City tasting room!

Potter Wines

Known for bringing you a mix of traditional wines and jalapeno wines, Potter Wines has reopened their tasting room in Garden City.  Enjoy their newest summer offerings in person, or pick up to enjoy on your own patios! Potter Wines is located at 5286 W Chinden Blvd Garden City, Idaho


The state of Idaho is home to more than 60 wineries and over 1,000 acres of grapes. If you’re looking to explore a little bit more as restrictions are lifted, a visit to a winery or vineyard might be the perfect opportunity for you this month. Where do you plan to go for Idaho Wine & Cedar Month?
