Take in the breathtaking sight of the Lewis-Clark Valley and experience part of the new frontier of grape growing in the United States, where Idaho winemakers are taking advantage of rich volcanic soils to craft award-winning wines. You will visit two award-winning Lewiston wineries (Clearwater Canyon Cellars and Lindsay Creek Vineyards) to sample their offerings and learn about the winemaking process from vineyard to bottle. Transportation, appetizer/snacks and two wine tastings are included. Minimum 10 participants, maximum 20 participants.


Micro-Brewery Tasting

Leave 1:30 pm – Return by 5:00 pm ($50)

In recent years, the Moscow-Pullman area has seen a proliferation of breweries and other spaces to enjoy beer. Washington and Idaho are currently first and second in hop production, while Washington consistently ranks near the top of states with the most breweries. This outing will involve a trip to two of these local breweries. First, we will visit Moscow Brewing Company, the area’s only nanobrewery. Co-owner Andy Severson will talk about their relationship with farmers and how they use local ingredients in their beer and provide a tour, while you enjoy a tasting flight and bread made in-house. Our second visit will be to the newly opened Paradise Creek Trailside Taproom. Transportation, snacks and beer tastings are included. Minimum 10 participants, maximum 20 participants.
