Join us as we welcome Lola Le back to the winery for a delicious evening of food and wine! Belly up to the Banh Xeo bar and enjoy!
What is Banh Xeo, you ask?
Banh Xeo is a Vietnamese sizzling crepe, or sizzling pancake. It is named for the loud sizzling sound it makes when the rice batter hits a hot skillet. This savory thin pancake is filled with thin slices of pork belly, whole shrimp, and bean sprouts.
Once the pancake is crispy on all sides, it’s folded over with a spatula, then transferred onto a serving platter and served with a variety of fresh vegetables, Vietnamese herbs and a side of Vietnamese dipping sauce, also known as Nuoc Mam.
Lola Le will have a Banh Xeo bar set up inside the winery so you can create your own delicious plate!
This time, we’re giving you the option to pre-purchase a Banh Xeo package through Eventbrite or by calling the winery at 208-793-1773, or you are also welcome to order ala-carte from Lola Le when you arrive.

Tasting & Tap Rooms

taste

Garden City boasts an impressive selection of wineries and breweries, and on any given day you can sample their wares and discover what the buzz is about. Use our guide to taste your way through the wineries, cideries, and breweries that call Garden City home.

Start with a Bloody Mary brunch

Caffe Luciano’s has earned a devoted following for its breakfast paninos — savory sandwiches packed with ingredients like prosciutto, eggs, mozzarella, and basil aioli — but get into the spirit of your adventure with one of their Bloody Marys. You’ll be primed for the day of indulgence that lies ahead.

Ease into it with cider

Pace yourself! Meriwether Cider is a great place to begin your taproom adventure after your boozy brunch. If you tend to think of alcoholic cider as sickly sweet or one-note, Meriwether’s brews are bound to change your mind. Try the crisp Foothills Semi-Dry, the flavor-packed Ginger Root, or one of the seasonal selections to get your footing.

Sip Syrah at Cinder

Any time is a good time for rosé, especially Cinder’s Dry Syrah Rosé. Make like a local and stop in for a tasting at Cinder’s industrial-chic tasting room — if you’re lucky, you might even get an impromptu tour of the winemaking facilities in the back! Cinder’s wines are made from Snake River Valley grapes and are a prime example of the potential of Idaho’s up-and-coming wine scene. Start sipping now and you’ll have bragging rights when the rest of the world discovers these treasures.

Drink like a Barbarian

Barbarian Brewing’s roots go back — way back — to the ancient Europeans who pioneered the sour beers that have become a phenomenon today. Barbarian uses Old World-style methods to create fresh, new flavors like Odin’s Table Bier, Cry of the Blackbirds, and The Warg. Barbarian has a huge, experimental beer list, so ask about limited-edition beers that you won’t find anywhere else. Barbarian’s pioneering style and willingness to try new flavors makes each trip to their taproom unique.

 

Finish strong

You’re bound to be ravenous by the end of your tour, so why not stop in at a classic steakhouse? The Stagecoach has been an institution since the 1950s, and its bar is one of the busiest locations in all of Garden City. Grab a cozy leather booth and sip on one of the Stagecoach’s legendary martinis or Manhattans. Order a snack of their signature bar prawns to truly round out the experience.

Of course, there’s much more to discover! Find a full list of Garden City’s craft breweries and wineries.

Craft Beverage Corridor

Craft Beverage Makers Love Garden City

Around the turn of the 21st century, Garden City’s warehouses were still simple storage spaces — cavernous, industrial, and strictly utilitarian.
Until the brewers moved in.

Lured to Garden City by plentiful space, the low cost of doing business, and a love for beer, breweries began retrofitting spaces with massive stainless steel vats. Wineries followed suit, and then a cidery, until suddenly Garden City was the craft beverage destination in the state — and a top contender in the Northwest.

Idaho now ranks 10th in the number of craft breweries per capita, according to the Brewers Association. And the state’s booming wine industry has a whopping $169.3 million impact.

That’s due in no small part to the explosion of offerings in Garden City. Not bad for a state that had only a single winery back in the 1970s.

Today, Garden City is famous for its Craft Beverage Corridor, a collection of seven wineries, six breweries, and one cidery within a four-square-mile radius. It’s a community that bound by creativity, attention to detail, and a commitment to local hops and grapes.

Want to cruise the corridor worry free? Try the Boise Brew Bus, which takes beer and wine lovers through Garden City’s fine tasting rooms in its “green machine” converted bus. Take a pre-selected tour or create your own to hit your favorite spots. Here’s a list to get you started:
