There are over 3,100 whitewater river miles in the state of Idaho. Our story started on the Middle Fork of the Salmon and has had many meanderings through just a fraction of those thousands of miles. Marshall was a river guide and Hailey was a guest on a trip; we both love the river, and we both love Idaho.
The sparkling wine we make is a tribute and thanks to the whitewater that has shaped our story. We strive to make a wine as alive as the rivers that inspire it. 3100 Cellars is Idaho's first, and only sparkling winery. We use 100% Idaho grapes to make all of our wines, and we believe that the Idaho wine industry can stand shoulder-to-shoulder with any great wine region of the world. All of our wines are made in the traditional method, refermented in bottle to get the bubbles, then disgorged to get the yeast out and showcase the wine.

About Jose Andre's World Central Kitchen in Ukraine
World Central Kitchen is serving millions of fresh meals to Ukrainian families fleeing home as well as people remaining in the country. Under the leadership of Chef Jose Andres, WCK has been delivering tens of thousands of meals daily in Kharkiv and the surrounding region to bomb shelters, hospitals, churches, seniors, and people trapped on the front lines.
“Those fleeing the violence in Ukraine could spend days traveling before they're able to reach safety.
That's why famed chef José Andrés, through his nonprofit World Central Kitchen, quickly set up facilities across the country to provide meals for people fleeing the war. They were on the ground in Ukraine one day after the Russian invasion.
"Why we are so quick? Because we don't plan. We don't meet. We come, and we begin cooking," Andrés told NPR's Michel Martin.
The nonprofit, which partnered with restaurants in the country, is serving food at hundreds of locations in 12 Ukrainian cities, he said. It also has sites in Poland, Hungary, Romania, and Slovakia for refugees who crossed the border to safety.
"It kind of breaks your heart, because you wonder why we need to be putting young people – men and women – in this situation of having to go to defend their country and putting their lives at risk. Nothing makes sense," Andrés said from the western Ukrainian city of Lviv.
