Napa Valley Register - Idaho wines -- and Idaho winemakers

A historical marker atop a levee in Lewiston, Idaho, commemorates where Meriwether Lewis and William Clark camped Oct. 10, 1805, as part of their grand survey of the recently purchased Louisiana Territory — stretching from St. Louis to the Pacific. Here, the Clearwater River confluences with the Snake, which, as its name suggests, meanders in a sinuous fashion westward to the Columbia in Washington’s Tri-Cities on its inexorable path to Portland and the great ocean beyond.
