Snake River AVA

By Ray Isle Posted March 13, 2007

Idaho's Snake River Valley has been approved as an AVA by the US Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau. This is a good thing for Idaho, of course, as it is now the only state with an approved AVA that (a) is bigger than both Connecticut and Delaware combined, and that (b) a portion of which was almost jumped over by Evel Knievel on a rocket-powered motorcycle back in 1972. Terroir? Hah. I got your terroir right here, pal.
