2015 Idaho Winery of the Year

by Wine Press Northwest

A Labor of Love

Karl & Coco Umiker are growing grapes and living as fourth generation farmers on their family’s land in the Lewis Clark Valley.

Local Grapes

We produce wines made from grapes grown within 20 miles of our winery.

Education paved the path to success for Clearwater Canyon Cellars. Coco, our winemaker, capped her formal education with a doctorate degree studying wine microbiology.

We are inspired to bring notoriety back to the valley as a world-renowned area for growing wines.
