Written Palette - Coiled Wines


It is not often that you run across a winery that truly defines a region, AVA and the topography of an area with their branding. Sitting at dinner recently sipping a bottle of the Coiled Sidewinder from Idaho’s Snake River Valley AVA, the thought occurred.

The Coiled label and branding not only represents the region; it also signifies owner/winemaker, Leslie Preston’s own life, a story with lots of twist and turns, winding its way to where it is now. While on a media trip to discover the wines of Idaho, I meet Leslie. When meeting her you immediately recognize her passion and love for her wine.  You also recognize her commitment to what she is creating in her home state.
