Annual Idaho wine event scheduled for June
Savor Idaho, billed as the state’s premier wine and food event, is celebrating its five-year anniversary this year. Hosted by the Idaho Wine Commission, Savor Idaho will be held on Sunday, June 9 from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Idaho Botanical Garden in Boise.
Savor Idaho is an experience like none other in the Treasure Valley, organizers said.
Attendees are given the opportunity to taste their way through Idaho’s best wine and food, all in the setting of one of Boise’s most popular venues. The event will host a number of Idaho wineries and restaurants, miscellaneous other vendors, and a “Wheel of Wine” where participants have the opportunity to win a wide array of prizes.
All proceeds from the “Wheel of Wine” go to the Idaho Wine Education Scholarship Fund.
The Boise Co-op Wine Shop will be hosting the on-site wine shop, where favorite wines tasted throughout the event can be purchased.
Tickets for Savor Idaho will be $45 and will go on sale March 1. There will be 900 tickets available for purchase. You can purchase tickets for Savor Idaho online at www.savoridaho.org, or at the Idaho Botanical Garden, 2355 Old Penitentiary Rd. in Boise and at A New Vintage Wine Shop 1400 N. Eagle Rd., Meridian.
The Idaho Wine Commission’s goal is to market and promote all Idaho wineries and growers. There are a total of 50 wineries with 1,600 vineyard acres planted. Industry officials said the wine industry contributed $73 million to Idaho’s economy.
