The Lewis Clark Valley AVA
Home to One of the Country’s Newest & Fastest Growing Wine Regions – The Lewis-Clark Valley AVA is the first and only AVA in Idaho or Washington to be nestled in the unique mountainous backbone of northern Idaho, the Bitterroot Mountains. The first vineyards were planted as early as 1872 with varietals such as Petite Sirah, Petite Verdot, and Cabernet Franc being cultivated. By 1908, 40 varieties of grapes were being cultivated. Two years later, Lewiston voted for a ban on alcoholic beverages and the industry crashed. Most of the wine was turned into vinegar and winemaking virtually disappeared until the late 1990s.
In 2016, the Lewis-Clark Valley officially became an AVA and hosts some of the lowest elevation vineyards in the state of Idaho at 950 feet over 479 square miles, approximately 307,000 acres. While the AVA average is shared with Washington, about 72% is located in Idaho, and it’s currently home to nine wineries and 16 vineyards growing 20 grape varietals.
Northern Idaho’s Premier Event Space
Lindsay Creek Vineyards has established itself as one of the premier, go-to locations to host weddings and private events in Lewiston and Northern Idaho.
