Clearwater Canyon Cellars Blog

Wine writer recommends Clearwater Canyon

June 18, 2012

We participated in Savor Idaho on June 10th. About 1,000 people tasted wine from 28 Idaho wineries and nibbled on gourmet food prepared by Boise area restaurants. We had the opportunity to dine (at Fork in Boise) with Ben Weinberg prior to the event. Ben is a well traveled wine writer and recommended two of our wines to his blog readers! Click here to read what Ben wrote about us and to get a good laugh at the picture he posted of me slurping and swirling our wine! Can’t take me anywhere!

This is a great stop if you are driving between Missoula Montana and Lewiston. Great food and a compelling wine list ….yup it is a must do…sip Clearwater Canyon Cellars Lochsa at the Lodge after a long day on the Lochsa! Peter Grubb, the owner, is a real wine lover. I took this picture of Peter in front of one of the cabins (COMPLETE WITH HOT TUB). Can you see the wine stains on his teeth? He seemed to really like our Cab Franc 😉 Check them out at
