We were so excited to feature very special champagne made in Idaho by 3100 Cellars at our recent Bubbly Tasting Fundraiser for World Central Kitchen.
There are over 3,100 miles of whitewater in Idaho and there are approximately 1 million bubbles ascending through a single flute of quality sparkling wine. For winemaker Hailey Minder, those numbers are interconnected. Hailey and husband Marshall are co-owners of 3100 Cellars, which started producing sparkling wine in 2014. They have the distinction of owning the only Idaho winery devoted exclusively to this category of wine.
"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," says Hailey.
Whitewater – sparkling Chardonnay wine
Runoff Rose – sparkling rose wine
General Phunk – sparkling ancestral method wine
