Vineyard A great wine begins in the vineyard. Our first harvest yielded a very special Dry Moscato. Don't prejudge this wine by the varietal name. It is very different. This year, 2016, we will be harvesting our first Estate-Grown red, Cabernet Franc, as well as our Dry Moscato and Sauvignon Blanc. Winery We make our wines with dedicated care to each small batch. When the time is exactly right to pick the grapes, they are expertly harvested and sorted. Then we make each small lot by hand with careful attention to things like temperature, pH, and other important factors. This process is a labor of love. Harvest season is called "Crush" in the wine world. It is a time of lots of hard work and very little sleep for our winemaking team. The results are worth it. Tasting Room Our Tasting Room has a view of the vineyard and of the Owyhee mountain range. It is beautiful in all seasons. Located on the Sunnyslope Wine Trail just 40 minutes from downtown Boise or the airport.

Hat Ranch is our favorite winery in the Snake River Wine Region. We like dry wines and when Hat Ranch advertises their wine as dry they mean it. Very customer oriented and the owner and staff really go out their way to make you feel...More

HAT Ranch introduce us to likely the most surprising white wine ever. They're 2016 Sauvignon Blanc has a unique aroma and taste of grapefruit, kiwi and lime---no lie! Marvelous on a hot day.

Thank you so much! That was the very first harvest from our Sauvignon Blanc vineyard that we planted in 2013. We worked hard to grow that wine and we appreciate your comment.
