Our WinesPlan Your Visit

In line with the advice from the CDC, Federal authorities and Governor Brad Little to limit contact with people for the next 15 days; Bitner Vineyards has decided to Temporarily CLOSE the tasting room as of Friday, March 20, 2020. We will reevaluate in two weeks, but there is a possibility it will be longer. 

We want to be a part of the solution to help our community stay healthy. The decision is not an easy one for us. We value and appreciate your continued patronage and we hope that Bitner Vineyards wines will help you get through this difficult and stressful time. We are offering curbside service by appointment with advance notice. This allows you to drink great wine and de-stress and allows us to continue to pay our vineyard crew and farming expenses so that we can hopefully have a successful harvest in 2020.

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.

Incredible weekend

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.

Fabulous Views

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.
