CONCIERGE TOURS

   Book Now

From seeing a hawk gliding on the wind, to catching a fish jump in the Clearwater river from the corner of your eye, you can almost see Lewis and Clark paddling up the scenic river.  Viewing the historic homeland of the Nez Perce (Nimiipuu) Tribe, you can feel the ancient tribal drums pounding a steady beat, and see the native peoples as they lived on this land for thousands of years.  The rich complexity of the wines in the Lewis-Clark AVA is reflective of this rich cultural heritage.

Each of the Twisted Vine Wine Tours will be customized to meet your needs and interests by the owner and guide, who has spent the last 25 years living in this amazing land that Lewis and Clark journeyed through over 200 years ago.  For many, learning about the fascinating culture of the Nez Perce Tribe and their many stories and cultural sites located on the way to Colter’s Creek Winery, will fit the bill (winery not available on the Muscat Quick Tour).  Hearing about the sordid history of the founding of Lewiston and the Idaho Territory will be intriguing while enroute to Lindsay Creek Winery.  Idaho is known for its many outdoor activities, and Vine 46 is a great example of Idaho’s other most known attribute:  friendly, helpful people.

Naturally, learning about the nearly perfect terroir  of the Lewis-Clark AVA, the varietals currently grown, and the accolades our featured wineries have garnered will impress most while being comfortably transported to Clearwater Canyon Cellars.

Want to learn more about wine making?  The founder of the WSU Viticulture program, Carter Clary, will interest and educate you, all the while drinking his wine at Woodie Cellars!

Of course, some people are more interested in certain parts, and less interested in other parts of this fascinating story.  Rest assured, your cheerful guide will focus on what you are interested in, and answer your questions, throughout the journey.

You are a discerning traveler, and certainly do not want to miss out on anything.  With this in mind, ADA compliant headsets will be distributed so every word can be heard crystal clear, and your cheerful and helpful owner operator guide will then usher you to the clean and comfortable 2014 Ford Econoline Van.

And should you decide that you are having an incredible time and the tour is not long enough, there is the option to extend the tour for $70/hour.
