The Lewis Clark Valley has a long wine history. Grapes were introduced to the area in 1872 by two French immigrants, Louis Desol and Robert Schleicher, and one German immigrant, Jacob Schaefer, the region rapidly became known for its award-winning wines. That continued until the prohibition era, which put an end to the wine industry here. There is a terrific article on this subject entitled “History of Wine in Lewiston” by Robert Wing. We recommend checking it out at the Nez Perce County Historical Society & Museum.

Today, local wineries are winning their own medals for varietals made from local and regional grapes. The area is currently home to 11 vineyards and 10 wineries. All continuing the legacies of Desol, Schleicher and Schaefer with award-winning wine. Lewis Clark wineries offer small-town feel with big flavor and people are noticing.
