It jumped out at me as soon as I read it. I was downtrodden when I arrived in Boise in September of 2016, lost and weary from a year of heartbreak and personal loss. I had never been to the Idaho capital, and I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the downtown area was welcoming and easy to navigate, as were my hosts and fellow media companions. I traversed tastings and tours over the course of the long weekend, filled with small talk, wineries, and restaurants. But it was at Meriwether Cider where I found renewed inspiration next to their incredible Foothills Semi-Dry.
