ste chapelleFrom high atop "Winery Hill," Ste. Chapelle Winery overlooks thousands of acres of fertile orchards and farmland in Southwestern Idaho known as Sunny Slope, with the famous Snake River winding through the valley below.

Founded in 1976, Ste. Chapelle Winery is named after the beautiful La Sainte Chapelle in Paris, built by King Louis IX as the court chapel during the 13th century. The winery tasting room follows the airy feel of La Sainte Chapelle with its high, bright cathedral-style windows, vaulted ceilings with wooden beams and a stained glass grapevine window greeting its visitors.

Built with the intention of being a small operation, Ste. Chapelle quickly expanded to meet consumer's demand as the Idaho wine growing region built its reputation. Today the winery is owned by Corus Brands and is producing approximately 135,000 cases of award winning wine annually which are distributed throughout the United States, Europe and many Pacific Rim countries

Ste. Chapelle Vineyards

In 1971 the first experimental vinifera vineyards were planted in Idaho by Symms Fruit Ranch, a family-owned fruit producer mainly growing apples and peaches. It is a viticulture rule of thumb that any area that can grow peaches can also grow premium vinifera wine grapes. Today, Ste. Chapelle produces award-winning Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Johannisberg Riesling, Pinot Noir, and Syrah from the finest Idaho vineyards.

Johannisberg Riesling was the first wine produced by Ste. Chapelle from Idaho grapes, soon followed by Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Noir. Riesling was Ste. Chapelle's first success due to the great, cool growing conditions for the grape. Ste. Chapelle found continued success with their first vintage of Chardonnay, soon followed by 25 acres of Sauvignon Blanc planted in 1986. Ste. Chapelle constantly continues to explore and expand Idaho's wine-growing horizons.
