Savor the Flavor
Offering both an in-house menu in the Tasting Room and custom menus for your scheduled event, Storm is looking forward to making your day special. From appetizers to full course meals, Parma Ridge offers both the taste and the view. Come by during tasting room hours to enjoy one of his delicious menu items, or contact us today to plan your special event!

I did mention to Stephanie that Robin and I have probably had close to all of the items offered on the menu. We have never had a bad selection, but there are some we prefer! The Parma Ridge Bistro is definitely a 5-Star winery bistro in the Snake River AVA.

Love this photo by Stephanie Hodge! So dramatic! I understand that it may be a label sometime in the future.

Brunch at Parma Ridge Bistro!


26oct2016_1_parma-ridge_dusk-viewIt was great to get back to Parma Ridge Winery and Bistro. It’s been a while. And this time, we sat at a large table and others, who we did not know, joined us. What fun meeting some new folks. And Chef Storm still does a great job in the kitchen, as does his crew. Thanks for a great brunch! We also had some un-labeled wine, 2015 Parma Ridge Carmenere and a 2016 Parma Ridge Chardonnay – unoaked! I am not a Carmenere fan, but this was superb and will go good in any cellar. Very fruity and smooth. Went very well with the chowder and thee Brunch Burger. The 2016 Chardonnay has also a superb wine. Unoaked helped! How good were these wines? We bought some of each. Look at their site: Parma Ridge Winery and Bistro Here’s what we had for our brunch. See you there sometime? Hope so. And keep this in mind – All entrees and sides are made fresh and on site!
