The Sun Valley Connection

Coincidentally, we have selected back-to-back featured labels from companies that both trace their beginnings to Sun Valley, Idaho! You can read about the other featured label from Sun Valley Mustard here.

While attending the 2002 Sun Valley Wine Auction, Jerry and Sandy Solomon happened upon a table occupied by none other than Trey Busch, who was then making the wines for a small Walla Walla winery. Along with the wonderful weather and amazing wines, Jerry and Sandy fell in love with Trey’s charismatic personality… so much so that they invited him to their home for the next three years to host a series of winemaker’s dinners. During the course of these dinners, Jerry and Sandy decided to take a trip to Walla Walla. After just one visit, they knew the place was special… the community of winemakers, the historic downtown, and the beautiful Blue Mountains immediately drew them in. It was then they discovered Trey was looking for a partner for a new winery.

We’ve discovered a simple way to recycle your glass bottles into elegant vases. Similar products are currently being sold for more than $40 from various online retailers. If you like the idea of hand made gifts, we think these would be great for Christmas!

All you need is a cheap glass cutter and a kitchen sink
