World-Class Wines From

The snake river valley

The name CINDER was chosen in 2006 during our first vintage to recognize the amazing geologic history of the high-elevation desert of the Snake River Valley, where ancient volcanic activity has left colorful “cinder” layers under many of the vineyards we work with and contributed to the conditions that make such wonderful wines.
