3 Horse Ranch Vineyards – Idaho wines of honest place and origin in the Eagle Foothills AVA. In 2003, Gary and Martha Cunningham broke ground in the foothills above Eagle, Idaho, planting historic Vitis Vinifera rootstock in Idaho’s fertile organic soil. Some of this rootstock traces its heritage to the 17th century Côtes du Rhône wine region in the southern Rhone Valley of France.
Utilizing environmentally sustainable farming practices and the organic approach to vineyard production illustrates not only their personal commitment to future generations of Idaho families, but to the preservation of the land itself.
3 Horse Ranch Vineyards chose organic growing methods to obtain the strongest and richest grapes possible, with the fewest detrimental environmental impact. They harvest their grapes by hand rather than by machine to reduce stress or damage to the fruit, vine or soil.
