If you want to try some of the very best wine in Idaho stop by HAT Ranch/Vale Winery. Tim makes some top notch wine, ranging from the Viognier to the Tempranallo; there's not a so-so wine out of the entire bunch! The staff at the tasting room are fun, easy going and very knowledgeable.I highly recommend stopping by for a... More

The HAT Ranch Winery is one of the newer additions to the Sunnyslope district (there are ~12 wineries on the trail), but is rapidly growing in prominence. The tasting room staff are friendly and welcoming, and the selection of wines very interesting. The wines range from traditional varietals (under the Vale label) to the more esoteric and blends under the... More

Great visit with awesome wines! Make sure to do a little walk around the vineyards. You're not far from Bitner Vineyards and Koenig, hit them as well.

The Hat Ranch Winery is a small family operation that makes some of the best wines in the area. They are off the beaten path in a quite and peaceful area near the Snake River. They also operate a Bed & Breakfast.

Whenever I have people in from out of town, we try to do the Snake River Valley wine tour. Visiting Hat Ranch Winery is a must. They are friendly and knowledgeable, though the tasting room is small. I stop in sometimes just to see what's new. I also belong to their wine club and greatly anticipate receiving my new bottles!

Thank you so much!! We really love our customers and we especially enjoy seeing our wine club members. Some of you start to become like family to us over time and that makes this winery one of the most worthwhile things we have ever done! The new Vale Syrah is available to Wine Club now and we hope you love... More

Liked the white and red wines, bought a Hat Ranch Chardonnay and a Vale Cabernet but didn't stay long. Small tasting room and not really set up for relaxing afternoon but I gave them a 4 because the wine was very nice and worth the stop.

Helen H, Owner at HAT Ranch Winery, responded to this review

Thanks for reviewing and liking the wine!! The wine, the tasting room and the vineyard were all put in place within the last five years. There is a plan for expanding the tasting room setting that will happen along with continued growth. If you liked the wine, imagine what the next five years could bring! Check back again later. :) More
