Sample the Idaho Wine Harvest
Autumn in Boise marks a canopy of fall foliage and harvest season, including wine grapes, apples, pumpkins and so much more. Winegrowers shift into overdrive come late September for the annual crush with many wineries hosting special harvest events, tastings and tours. Hit the Sunnyslope Wine Trail or the Boise Urban Wine Trail to sip new releases and view vineyards in their purple and gold glory. Amp up the fun by joining the Idaho Wine Commission’s Sip Local Bingo challenge. Get your bingo card at a local business, or at Visit Boise’s Visitor Information Center located within the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce. Then head out to participating wineries before September 30 for a chance to win prizes. See a full list of winery tours here.
