About Us

Better Together


Our journey began when we found each other in the beautiful Rhine wine valley of Germany.  After more than 20 years of travel and exploration, we are overjoyed to make our home in the Treasure Valley and share our passion for wine with you.  As a family with a rich military history, we understand sacrifice, hardwork, and dedication…to our country, each other, the land, fruit, and wine-making process.  We encourage you to raise a glass with us in appreciation of this great country…Salute!

Our History

Our Vineyards

Growing The Best Grapes

Sol Invictus Vineyard is the dream come true!  After searching the Treasure Valley for the idea growing location, we located a site perfect in orientation and soil to produce delicious wine grapes.  With a sandy-loamy profile and plenty of air drainage, we have maximized our ability to reduce water irrigation and minimize applications of sprays.

Idaho has an ideal climate…and the secret is out!


One Of A Kind….Your Piece Of Heaven

LOCATION: Elevated bench on the north side of the valley with south facing slope.  Adjacent to the winery and tasting room.

VINES: Planted in 2015 with numerous varietals.  We are focused on high quality, small case production.  Our plantings include red varietals such as Syrah, Malbec, Merlot, Tempranillo, Sangiovese, Mourvedre, and Cabernet Sauvignon.  We have even snuck in a private planting of Pinot Noir.  Our white varietals include Riesling, Chardonnay, Viognier….and the crowd-pleasing Gewurtztraminer.

SOIL: Sand and loam.  This is ideal of exceptional root development.  Our soil has low organic material…and with the dry season from July through October, we have tremendous control over inputs to the vines and soil.

Our Vineyards

Our Vines

We carefully select own-rooted vines designed for Idaho’s unique soil profiles.  Healthy soil management is key to exceptional wines


Scott and Denise searched throughout the Treasure Valley to locate the perfect site for their vineyard.  A south-facing slope with efficient cold air drainage compliments the sandy/loamy soil profile.  Sol Invictus Vineyard occupies a superior location for healthy vineyard management practices.  From early spring pruning through fall harvest season, exceptional fruit is the standard!
