HAT Ranch Winery was established in 2011, and has since gone on to win medals in wine competitions and rapidly grow a following for our specialty varietal HAT Ranch wines. We also purchased Vale Wine Company in 2014 and continue to produce quality traditional varietal wines under the Vale label. We hope you come visit our tasting room located on the Sunnyslope Wine Trail and taste our premium wines for yourself. Or you can purchase wine directly online.
We believe in the special climate and soils (called “terroir”) in the Snake River Valley that makes this place a world-class wine growing region. We selected this location specifically to make wine. That’s Right! The Snake River Valley in Southwestern Idaho is a world-class wine region. It is similar to Washington but has it’s own microclimate distinction, as well as a marvelous wine community.
