New wineries come to Caldwell

CALDWELL — A bottle of Sanford Pinot Noir altered Angie Shaltry’s life forever while she was living in Park City, Utah.

It was love in a glass and led her to the wine country of Sonoma, California, where she started her journey toward making wine.

Shaltry has a degree in microbiology from the University of Idaho. She wanted to get involved with medicine. In a way, she has.

“If you hand someone a glass of wine, they smile, they feel good,” Shaltry said.

Now she will be part of two new wineries moving to the University of Idaho Business and Technology Incubator to complete the trifecta with Hat Ranch Winery, which resides at the incubator in Caldwell.
