A Truly Magical and Tasty History

Updated on July 8, 2015

Idaho is an exciting frontier of grape-growing areas

People love Idaho for a wide variety of reasons. Among my favorites are the mountains, the friendly people, and the big , starry skys at night. But there is another part of this area's appeal which is coming to light. The wine regions of Idaho are truly magical.

That is why Peppershock Media Productions has developed a new documentary. The film promotes local business. It enhances economic strength by showcasing Idaho’s vineyards and wineries.

The feature length Idaho Wine From Bud to Taste Bud explores from bud to tastebud–including culinary features. It will highlight the past and fruitful future, as well as educate and explore modern agricultural, specifically viticultural, practices by seamlessly blending the voices of those whose lives are impacted by the Idaho wine industry.

Idaho is an exciting frontier of grape-growing areas known for unique viticultural practices to grow high quality outputs in its vineyards. These strategies include he use of open canopies over the vines, drip irrigation and aggressive pruning to ensure lower yields.

Ice wines or Eiswein, was originally developed in Austria and Germany. It was been noted as far back as the 1700’s. The huge different way this wine is processed gives it the name. You actually press the grapes while they are still frozen and before.

Recognition

People all across the world are aware of Idaho wine. In the popular 2010 book Idaho Wine Country, writer Alan Minskoff and photographer Paul Hosefros explore the back roads of Idaho. For fifteen months, the authors interact with and and photograph more than fifty winemakers and grape growers. The text documents all stages of grape and wine production.

Wine specifically from Idaho also receives mentions in The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Muppet Movie, and in the Ingrid Bergman film Cactus Flower.

A fruitful future: The Industry Will Continue to Grow

Why is the future so bright? Idaho's vineyard elevations (ranging up to 3,000 feet) are higher than most others in the Northwest. Soils in the state are mostly made up of volcanic-ash. The extended, toasty daylight hours during grape-growing season and arid climate combines with cool summer evenings.

There could be no better scenario for the growth of wine grapes and the industry. With Idaho's grape growing potential, these fruits will continue to blossom. This region's unique combination of environmental and ecological factors -- including concentrated fruit flavors and naturally high acidities -- results in the production of the highest quality fruits.

There is a tremendous foundation of Idaho's wine optimism.
