Wine on the Middle Fork Salmon River 6 Days
Chef Eric Conte is Idaho raised and Idaho proud. He focuses on using local ingredients and products of this amazing region. Stylistically, the food he prepares is comforting and familiar, while still exploring new techniques and flavors that will wow his guests on this special Middle Fork Salmon wine tasting adventure. Striving for perfection rather than novelty, Eric is always at work keeping the menu rotating with the seasons, and interfacing with farmers and purveyors throughout the year to ensure quality ingredients are used in all his menus, and venues.
Choice Oregon, Washington and Idaho wines from Walla Walla, Washington-based Waterbrook, and Canoe Ridge labels will be thoughtfully paired with Chef Eric’s gourmet riverside meals, and presented by their wine educator on this popular Middle Fork Salmon River wine tasting adventure.
Of all the rivers that flow through the pristine wilderness of Idaho, perhaps the most spectacular is the Middle Fork of the Wild and Scenic Salmon River. Considered the state’s “Blue Ribbon” river, the Middle Fork Salmon boasts 100 non-stop Class III-IV whitewater rapids in 100 miles, natural hot springs, and excellent trout fishing in crystal-clear waters. And then there’s the scenery—soft meadows that roll towards the base of soaring mountains, craggy canyons ribboned with waterfalls, Native American pictographs, deep green forests, and grassy hills dotted with wildflowers—the diversity and beauty of the Middle Fork Salmon River is stunning.
