Food. Wine. Beer. Atmosphere. Drink it all in!

You’re coming for the food, right? But, to enhance the trance, we’ll be serving up some of Idaho’s most acclaimed beverages at the Sun Valley Harvest Festival, just days away now, Sept. 24-26. For instance …

Who knew Idaho had so many award-winning wines, beers and spirits? Prepare to be shocked, but in a good way! It’s all about terroir, carefully hand crafted products and knowledgeable winemakers, brewers and distillers.

Who will you see in the tasting room? Cinder, Frenchman’s Gulch, Fraser, Hell’s Canyon, Coulter’s Creek, Indian Creek, Vale, Holesinsky, Koenig, Wood River Cellars, Pend d’Oreille, Snyder and Three Horse Ranch Wineries.

Local distributors S & C Importers, Tastevin, Nouveaux and JW Thornton will be offering Ste. Michelle, Whitman Cellars, Cardwell Hills, Sokol Blosser, Ross Andrew, Mercer Estates, Siduri, Robert Sinskey, Cold Springs and a selection of additional Washington, Oregon and California wines.

You’ll also discover some extraordinary vodkas and liquers distilled right here in Rigby, ID at Distilled Resources, Inc. Locally made and internationally enjoyed, these smooth shots, some of which are organically crafted from our famous Idaho potatoes, will warm your heart and ease your mind.

The tasting room will be open from 2 to 5 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday. Admission is included with the purchase of a pass, but if you’re ordering à la carte, $25 will get you in.

If you’re all about the hops, then you’ll just HAVE to hit the Beer Garden on Saturday! It will feature brews from Laughing Dog, Sun Valley Brewing, Grand Teton Brewing, Idaho Brewing Co, River Bend Brewery, and Sockeye Brewery. Those Rasberry sisters and their outrageously delish dishes will make an appearance, bringin’ street tacos. Atkinsons has promised to make your chin messy with some fallin’ from the bone Country Natural ribs out of Mackay, and Toni’s will be dippin’ some delightful ice cream for ya!

The Beer Garden will be open from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, and again, it’s included in the price of a pass, but à la carte, it’s 15 bills, a portion of which goes to the Sun Valley Nordic Ski Team, so pony it up and celebrate Oktoberfest in style. Sponsored by Sun Valley Magazine, there will also be music by Cow Says Moo and Seattle’s Danny Barnes.
