Sawtooth Riesling Snake River Valley Idaho

The winery, formerly known as Pintler Cellars, was founded in 1987 and started as a fifteen-acre vineyard in the heart of the Canyon County region of the Idaho's Snake River Valley.

The vineyards surrounding Sawtooth Winery were once rich pastures owned by Charles Pintler.

The Pintlers saw a greater potential in the steep, south sloping hills, and set out to grow wine grapes.

Seven acres of European vinifera vines were planted in 1982, including Chenin Blanc, Riesling, and Semillon grapes.

In the following year, four additional acres were planted, including Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.

In 1987, the first harvest of fruit was available for the winery.


Winery Notes / Critics Reviews

A wonderfully fragrant Riesling with apricot, peach nectar and clover honey aromas welcome you.

A merriment of layered flavors such as poached pears, citrus and peach lead to a crisp long finish with a hint of minerality.
