Hello, there! We’re the Idaho Wine Commission!
In Idaho, you’ll find that we’re not short on warmth or character. You’ll find it in the wine, in the people who make it, and in the folks who work at the Idaho Wine Commission.
We’re a group of movers and shakers, and some of us are even winemakers who have the happy job of promoting and supporting the wine and cider industry in the state of Idaho. It’s a fun job, and an important one too. Our responsibilities include marketing support, industry advocacy, education and research, as well as enhancing the tourism experience across Idaho wine country. And as Idaho continues to grow in recognition locally and globally as a wine destination, we’ll be here to help nurture it along every step of the way.
