Sawtooth Home

Founded in 1987 in Idaho’s Snake River Valley, the estate vineyards surrounding Sawtooth Winery were once rich pastures owned by Charles Pintler. The Pintlers saw a greater potential in the steep, south sloping hills, and set out to grow wine grapes. Known for Riesling, Pinot Gris, Syrah, Merlot and Tempranillo, the winery, the Snake River Valley and Idaho have gained increasing national acclaim with winemaker Meredith Smith leading its program. With every bottle of Sawtooth you experience the spirit of adventure, the mystique and the natural beauty that lies within the snowcapped mountains and crisp, clean rivers of the Snake River Valley.



As the most significant grower of wine grapes in the Snake River Valley, the 70-acre Sawtooth Estate and the 400-acre Skyline Vineyard provide a sought after source of quality grapes not just for Sawtooth Winery, but also for some of Idaho’s most acclaimed winemakers.
