Snake River Valley AVA

If a wine is labeled with an AVA, or for wines to bear the Snake River Valley AVA label, at least 85% of the grapes that make up the wine must have been grown in the designated AVA, and the wine must be fully finished in the state where the AVA is located.


The Snake River Valley AVA is an American Viticultural Area that encompasses an area in Southwestern Idaho and two counties in eastern Oregon. The Idaho Grape Growers and Wine Producers Commission and the Idaho Department of Commerce and Labor filed the petition to recognize the AVA, and it was granted in 2007.
