Sawtooth

 

 

 

Idaho is a state known for spectacular mountains, rivers and lakes. However, many are unaware that this beautiful area is also a great wine growing region. The unique combination of geography, climate and soils found in Idaho’s vineyards can produce grapes with outstanding varietal character. High vineyard elevations, extra long hours of daylight during grape ripening, cool nights, volcanic ash soils, and ungrafted vines all contribute to producing grapes with concentrated flavors and naturally high acidity. Sawtooth Winery produces several Vinifera wine varietals, including 100% barrel fermented Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Gris, Syrah, Viognier and Roussanne-wines that are continually recognized for their high quality and exceptional taste. Brad Pintler carefully guides each variety of fruit to bring out the intricate characteristics of the wines. Most of the wines are fermented and aged in small French oak barriques until it is time for blending. Sawtooth Winery believes there is no compromising the winemaking process and will take every measure to ensure every bottle is of the highest quality. Check with Siema offices for current vintages.
