Bitner Vineyards

Bitner Vineyards We are Ron and Mary Bitner, just a couple of kids enjoying all of what southwest Idaho has to offer. Bitner Vineyards consists of 14 acres of premium vinifera wine grapes. First plantings in 1981 consisted of Riesling and Chardonnay making these some of the oldest blocks in Idaho. The vineyards are located in the beautiful Snake river valley of southwestern Idaho and the quality of the grapes is the result of the true "terroir" of the area. Dr. Ron Bitner is a professional entomologist ( ) receiving his PhD in 1976 from Utah State University. His work with bees has allowed him to travel extensively nationally and Internationally. Since 1995 he has spent nine seasons working in Australia with his bees, but also enjoying the Australian wine country. This Australian experience has lead to the plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz (as the Aussies say) to produce Austrailian style wines. Ron is currently a member of the Idaho Grape Growers and Wine Producers Commission and Secretary/Treasurer of the National Wine Grape Growers of America Association.
