Koenig signs lease for Fraser Vineyard Cabernet Sa


CALDWELL, Idaho — Fraser Vineyard, arguably Idaho’s most coveted site for Cabernet Sauvignon, will remain in the hands of award-winning winemaker Greg Koenig four more years, and perhaps longer.

“The name ‘Fraser Vineyard’ absolutely piques the attention of consumers in the Snake River Valley. Their eyes light up,” Koenig told Great Northwest Wine. “That Cab has been a very important single-vineyard wine in Idaho, and I plan to keep that tradition alive.”

Bev Fraser, owner of Fraser Vineyard, said she looks forward to seeing her vineyard’s name associated with Koenig’s winery in Idaho’s Snake River Valley.
