Idaho continues to evolve and get better! Paint n Sip was again
a welcome addition which gave attendees a creative outlet while
they were at this event. We chatted with the folks from the
Playhouse Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre www.PlayhouseBoise.com
and look forward to attending soon. We appreciated that
the Boise Co-op was there so you could buy and take home the
wines that you tasted and enjoyed. We had a terrific time with
our friends and other wine lovers and look forward to tasting
new vintages of Idaho Wines next year! Also remember to enjoy
wine tasting and events which are close by along the Sunnyslope
Wine Trail, as well as other tasting rooms around Idaho. Also
