EAGLE, Idaho (STPNS) -- The State of Idaho Department of Agriculture officially certified 3Horse Ranch Vineyards in Eagle to operate as an Organic producer of wine grapes on July 30, 2008. This is exciting news for the vineyard and for the city of Eagle. There are very few organic wines produced in Idaho and it further promotes Eagle as an innovative wine district, which could provide tremendous revenue for this area in the future. 3Horse Ranch issued the first release of their Rose', Viognier and Chardonnay wines this spring and a new issue of Malbec, Syrah, Pinot Grigio and Viognier will be released this fall. All of these wines are 100% estate grown and will be labeled "Made from 100% organically grown fruit". 3Horse Ranch Vineyards owner Gary Cunningham stated, "We are very pleased to be a part of the growing trend of sustainable farming practices. Our goal has always been to provide the cleanest possible fruit to our winemaker and eventually to the consumer."
