Stunning views of Lake Coeur d’Alene are just the beginning: This spot has more than 2,000 labels, making its list one of the largest in the state. Take the daily cellar tour before sitting down to duck in a cherry-Port reduction with Idaho-grown wild rice, or huckleberry soufflé.
From The Sommelier: “More than just a different style than Chard from California or Burgundy, the style of Willamette Chardonnay is gradually being refined with some great results. Some really beautiful, complex and elegant wines are being crafted and the future is bright. I think Oregon Chard will be regarded in the same high esteem as their Pinot Noir. I am delighted to see a gradual increase in interest in Merlot, especially from Washington state. We produce some truly exceptional Merlot here and they deserve recognition.” —Sam Lange, Beverly’s
