Documentary ‘Idaho Wine, From Bud To Taste Bud’ coming to Lewiston

LEWISTON, Idaho – The Lewiston premiere of “Idaho Wine, From Bud To Taste Bud” will take place at the Lewis-Clark State College Center for Arts & History in conjunction with the opening of the In The Vineyard Plein Air Exhibition on Friday, Aug. 7.

The feature length documentary; developed, produced, shot and edited by Peppershock Media of Nampa, Idaho; starts at 7 p.m. in the Main Gallery of the Center, located at 415 Main Street in downtown Lewiston. The film will be preceded by the plein air opening reception and awards ceremony at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m., respectively.

Peppershock Media traveled the state to produce the film which features the wine industry of Idaho’s three wine regions. The documentary chronicles the history of the industry, telling stories of its start in the 1800s, the challenges and failures of early pioneers, and the eventual successes of the over 50 wineries now calling Idaho home.

The film was produced with support from many of Idaho’s winemakers, the Idaho Wine Commission, the Idaho Department of Agriculture, Idaho Commerce, the Idaho Division of Tourism, and businesses in the wine industry. The event is brought to the community by sponsors Happy Day Restaurants and Wasem’s, and through grants from US Bancorp and the Idaho Commission on the National Endowment for the Arts.
