Pend d’ Oreille Winery Production
After many years of producing our Wines in downtown Sandpoint, we needed to expand our production capacity. We found the perfect piece of land and built a hangar located at 2625 N Boyer, right on the Sandpoint Airstrip. With a backdrop of the beautiful Selkirk Mountains and private aircrafts arriving and departing throughout the day, we couldn’t be happier with our selection.
We source the majority of our grapes form the Columbia River AVA in Washington, with the exception of our Chardonnay from Vickers Vineyard in the Snake River Valley AVA.
Our head Winemaker Jim Bopp continually makes trips down to the vineyards to check the grapes and ensure that their taste structure is ready for harvest. Once the decision is made, the grapes are handpicked and trucked back to our Winery where the real fun begins.
