Locally Owned Winery & Tasting Room


Potter Wines is our winery located in Boise, Idaho. Von is the winemaker, the scientist, the handyman and trouble-shooter. Crystal is the organizer, the marketer, the taster and business manager.

Years ago, jalapeño wine was Von’s brainchild. So we began our business journey with a vision of a wine that would raise eyebrows, pep-up palettes and make meals sizzle. Fast forward to present day, where jalapeño wine has become a kitchen staple for many.

Our wines have made people re-think the average margarita and recreate homemade ice cream recipes. We like to think of our customers as risk takers, decision makers, rule breakers, cocktail shakers and chipotle chocolate cake bakers. We are thrilled to share our crazy idea with others and we hope that it will inspire you to create and explore your own wild dreams.

Whether we are making Syrah, Riesling, or concocting our signature Jalapeño Lemonade, we strive to leave our innovative thumbprint on everything we produce. We vow to breathe a little fire into the wine industry with our devotion to oenophiles and foodies alike.

We were both born and raised in Idaho and we both left Idaho briefly only to return with the conclusion that this is where our hearts belong. We’ve found countless gems in our home-state, including the grapes, peppers, and pumpkins (for our seasonal pumpkin wine) we source from local farmers.

If you have the chance to visit Idaho, we hope you’ll make it our way. We’ll have a glass ready for you.

About Wine Club

The first rule of Wine Club, is tell everyone about Wine Club.

If you have had a taste of our Jalapeño Wine or one of our other Potter Wines, you are probably wanting more. A taste is never enough, and we know just how much you are craving what we have to offer. You might think the next step would simply be to order a case of the wine you want to drink and cook with and while that is a great idea, I think you probably want to go a step further than that. Maybe you are interested in becoming a part of our “Potter Wines Wine Club”. This is one of the best ways you can get involved with what we at Potter Wines are doing and gain access to certain wines that are only available to members of the club. It is also a great way to meet people in the Boise Winery community and make friends or other connections.

Members of the wine club will be able to try out certain wines that are only available for a limited time. They also get invited to certain events and tastings that are for members only. You will also probably be very interested to know that members receive discounted pricing for access to events and for new orders of whatever wine you want.

You can also sign up for different shipment plans to receive care-packages of wine throughout the year as you start to run out. You can either subscribe to the Solid, Cat’s Pajamas, Hotsy-Totsy, or Hot Shot plan. With each plan, you get more and more access to different shipments of wine at different parts of the year depending on when and how frequently you want to receive an updated stash. Some packages will come with Jalapeño Wine, some will come with our Potter Wines traditional wine, or you can get a mix of both. Be aware that specific wines are selected based on availability.

For Cooking, For Sipping, For Mixing…

Slightly spicy, Jalapeño Wine, with a balanced light sweetness. Excellent sipping wine on a quiet evening at home or with friends. Try it as an aperitif before your next meal to stimulate your taste buds and appetite. Add it to your sangria for that something special. It’s uses are limited only by your imagination.

Outstanding cooking addition. Use it to marinate, sauté, slow cook or as a reduction. Incredible with chicken, shrimp, fish or lamb. Try it on all seafood, it adds tremendous flavor without too much kick. Clams are a favorite.
