In the Boise Markets: Split Rail Winery

Split Rail Winery has no vineyards and no fax (business cards say, "Fax: those still exist?"). Located in the heart of Garden City, Idaho, Split Rail is an urban winery. The vintners buy grapes from vineyards in the nearby Snake River Valley American Viticulture Area, add yeast and water, and make wine. Breweries have been buying ingredients and making beer for ages.

Split Rail Winery is "the stampede for local agriculture, the epitome of pleasure and the turning wheels of evolution." Their goal is to "keep Idaho's lips red and our hair and minds in temporary disarray."


  1. An admirable goal! I'll drink to that.

  2. Rangewriter, Amazing, isn't it--urban wineries. But, why not?
