2018 WINE COLLECTION
In this third collection, we are proud to partner with 3 Horse Ranch Vineyards and Indian Creek Winery. Be sure to visit these wineries in their locations. The custom wine labels were created in partnership with alumni-owned businesses Journey Marketing Communication and Branched Roots Marketing.
2014 White Blend
Our white wine blend honors the visual fine arts at Boise State and beyond. Share this wine with all your friends to celebrate creativity and innovation. Raise your glass to the arts!
The 2014 dry white blend is 75% Viognier, 20% Roussane and 5% Marsanne. Floral tones of lilacs and violets compliment the natural fruit profile of honeysuckle and honeydew melon. The end result is a white wine that pleases many a crowd and pairs with numerous dishes, especially poultry, pasta, seafood and cheese!
3 Horse Ranch Vineyards
In the 1990’s, pioneering winegrowers Martha & Gary Cunningham began planting Rhone and Bordeaux vines of noble origin on the remote the Sawtooth Range north of Boise Idaho. Today, this vast, historic ranch is now home to Idaho’s largest family-owned vineyards. We invite you to experience our remarkable vineyards and wines from America’s newest and most fascinating winegrowing frontier, The Eagle Foothills District of the Snake River Valley Appellation in Eagle, Idaho.

Our Malbec wine honors the performing fine arts at Boise State and beyond. Just as an orchestra blends rich, full, sumptuous sounds, this wine is the perfect full-bodied melody. Share with all your friends and you will be shouting, bravo!
This Malbec is full-bodied, silky and soft mouthfeel with loads of blackberries and dark fruit. Hints of anise, black licorice and earthy notes on the finish. Try it with a barbecue chicken pizza or a juicy marinated grilled steak and veggies.
Indian Creek Winery
In Kylie’s travels from the mountains of Northern California, she has observed wine’s ability to bring people together. Living in South America, she was struck by how wine bridged gaps between people diverse in culture and language. Another great Idaho winery, Periple, officially introduced her to the wine industry while she was in college. Although she took a different career path upon graduation, she could never quite stray from wine and its connective qualities. Click here to learn more about Indian Creek Winery.
