KIVI - Idaho Wine bill passes Senate

3/13/2017

BOISE, ID - A bill to amend the definition of dessert wine under Idaho law has passed the Senate.

Under current law, Idaho wineries are not allowed to label their products as "port", "sherry" or "madeira" due to federal certification of labeling origination issues, so the Idaho Wine Industry is asking for the definition to be revised to state that dessert wine has the taste, aroma and characteristics attributed to said wines.
