Comments: Our family agribusiness is owned and operated by brothers Art and Doug McIntosh and their wives, Michelle and Brenda. For years, we have toured wineries with family and friends-both for the camaraderie, and for the wine. In time, we discovered that the Pacific Northwest offered some of the best products anywhere. Although it was a long-time, unfulfilled dream, in 2007 we finally decided that our family could join the impressive list of Northwest winemakers and we planted our first crop of 150 sticks of grapes, mostly Bordeaux, followed the next year by several Rhone varietals. As fourth-generation grain farmers in Lewiston, Idaho, we understand and appreciate the uniqueness of the Palouse region of Idaho and Washington. The sediment deposits from the great floods of Lake Missoula (many millennia ago) left us with a fertile soil that offers the perfect composition and drainage that grape vines love. We knew that we had the right environment, we just didn't have the knowledge. However, we weren't afraid to ask dumb questions-and to listen to very wise answers. We employed the help of some of the Northwest's leading wine growers and soon started to understand what it really takes to produce excellent wines.
