USA TODAY 10BEST - Idaho wine is the Pacific Northwest's greatest secret

When you think of Idaho, you might think of outdoor adventures and potatoes. But, wine? Believe it or not, the young, small, yet mighty and quickly growing wine community is producing some pretty fantastic wines. It makes sense, considering acclaimed wineries sit just over the border in Oregon, Washington and even the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia. The terroir for growing grapes in Idaho is ideal: hot summer days and cool nights, vine-loving volcanic soils, good water sources and cold winters that allow vines to go dormant and rest.
