Sunday Brunch at Parma Ridge Winery and Bistro


These are some fantastic Sunday Brunches! But call ahead to make reservations. They do get full and Busy! But then, that’s why they are a 5-Star Restaurant!! And we were lucky enough to receive and try some of their latest releases! Well worth joining their Wine Club. They do make an awesome Reserve Merlot, pictured here. And the Pinot Gris passes the test and goes well with asparagus!
Awesome wines and superbly awesome food. Here are some photos of what Robin and I indulged in. To bad there were no “left overs”. We had to get our daughter Marnie her own Wine Lovers Chocolate Cake. We had ours with vanilla ice cream. Here are the photos! Enjoy and Left-Click any of the photos to see enlarged. Cheers!

L-R 2016 Reserve Merlot (Superb!), 2016 Carmenere (Needs time. 5 years?), 2017 Pinot Gris (Goes with asparagus. Good with salmon) and 2017 LaRae Dolce Gewurztraminer (Superb with chocolate, as in Wine Lovers Chocolate Cake!)
Robin enjoys some wine.
Parma Ridge Pear Salad – with Grilled Chicken. Mixed Greens with Apple Cider Vinaigrette, Bleu Cheese and Poached Pear with Grilled Bread
The Phil Burger – All-Beef Patty with Bacon, Cheddar Cheese and Black Cherry BBQ Sauce and Rosemary Truffle Fries
Boy was it good!
The prize! Wine Lovers Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream.

Great Sunday Brunch at Parma Ridge Winery and Bistro


It was a beautiful drive from Boise with the fog forming along the river and in the valleys. Surrealistic. The food was good and the service was super. I’m glad we had reservations as the Bistro was getting full with at least 1 large party. I highly suggest you call for reservations – (208) 946-5187 or text them.
My only suggestion, and I mentioned this to Chef Megan, is to watch the salt content in the Poutine Bowl. I know it was well above the 1¼ teaspoon of daily allowance. It was excessive. But the plus side is the flavors were all there from the chardonnay sautéed mushrooms, cheese and bacon. Look at what we had. Yummy! Add to this a wonderful glass (or two) of the Parma Ridge 2016 Merlot, and you are bound for a super experience. Here is their Menu. If you want a fun and delicious visit to a winery bistro and you are in the Boise area, you must go here. Definitely a 5-Star bistro.

REGULAR HOURS: 12-9 pm Friday
12-5 pm Saturday and
11 am – 5 pm Sunday and serve cuisine all weekend.
Happy Hour on Friday from 4-7 p.m. and a Special Menu all day Sunday!

“Fog in the Valley”

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.
