Excellent wine with a view
Whilst visiting family in the area, we stopped by for a drink. The sun was high, the view was grand, but best of all the award winning Gold medal Cabernet was most excellent. Well done, Ron and Mary. Congrats.

We came up to Snake River Wine country with another couple for the first time. It was dark when we arrived and the Bitners were very friendly and accomodating. They are both a pleasure and very interesting to speak with. It was great fun to go around to the wineries and taste many. The Bitners wine is great and there can’t be many that know more about these wines than Ron.
But what I must mention is the view. You are on hill above the sloping Vinyards, that looks out over the Snake River Plain. When my wife came out in the morning she literally gasped at the view over the Vineyards. You can sit for hours enjoying this view and drinking their wine, as we did.

We had the pleasure of meeting Ron Bitner and do wine tasting. It was a fantastic experience plus the views are breathtaking. We so enjoyed ourselves. He explained each wine and especially liked the names of his wine (after his grandchildren.) So cool. The wine was so full of flavor, we purchased four bottles. We will definitely make this a stop when we are in this area.
