Vizcaya Winery

The closest of all the wineries in the region is a mere ten minutes from downtown Nampa on Greenhurst Road. The vintners started out in 2004, growing grapes for other wineries at their Windy Ridge and Vizcaya vineyards in Meridian and Kuna, before starting to produce their own wine. You can try these at their tasting room close to Nampa, open Fridays and Saturdays. Vizcaya is famed for its superb Tempranillo, which has won multiple regional and national awards (Idaho Wine Competition, Wine Business Monthly) in the last decade.

Also well worth a sip are the Malbec, Rosé, Albariño, Pinot Gris and red blend, Windy Ridge Red. Vizcaya Winery, located just 7 miles south of the Ten-Mile/I-84 exit, is owned and operated by Larry and Kay Hansen. Our desire to have a winery grew from our love of viticulture and wine. We started growing Tempranillo and other varieties in 2004 on our Windy Ridge Estate vineyard. After several years of providing grapes for other wineries, we decided to venture into producing our own wine.  We now have two vineyards and are offering seven wines at our tasting room.  

Our 2011 Tempranillo was awarded a double gold/best of class at the 2015 Idaho wine competition and our 2012 Tempranillo was recognized by Wine Business Monthly as one of the top 9  in the Northwest and received silver.  We have also won awards with our Albarino, Pinot Gris, Rose’, Malbec, and Windy Ridge Red. There’s magic in the wine, and that magic is Windy Ridge Estate vineyard and Vizcaya vineyard. Vizcaya Winery is a family business located in the heart of the Treasure Valley. Offering a unique variety of wines and memorable tasting room experience.
