Tucked away among the vines Sawtooth Winery is an enduring pioneer and leader among Idaho's growing wine country.
Crush Capacity: 3,000 tons
Total Production Capability: 150,000 cases
Barrel Capacity: 2,550
Fermentation Tanks: 60 tanks (1,000 to 27,000 gallon)
Unique Tools and Technology: Sloped bottom red fermenters are used for safe and efficient emptying of red wine fermentations, a high-speed bottling line, and other equipment to remove solids and stop fermentation as needed. We have an in-house lab to run most analyses and we confrim bottling sterility with daily cultures. Orion Wine Software allows our winemaking team to issue and track work orders.
Consistent Quality: Cellar and bottling maintenance and QC program features standard operating procedures that ensure highest quality and consistency of products.
Long-Term Plans: We will continue to work with our growers to maximize the quality of fruit, and with the University of Idaho and USDA in the Sawtooth Vineyard experimentation blocks.
