Family Owned & Operated


The Sweetbriar Vineyard and Winery is owned and operated by Mike and Tamara Mackenthun. The couple retired from the Air Force to Mountain Home, Idaho and built their retirement home. During a trip to California Adventure at Disneyland, they talked to the Mondavi representative (at the time) about vineyards and wine making. They became convinced, after much research, they could build a small vineyard and winery of their own.

All Our Wines Are Produced & Bottled On The Premises From Our Own Grapes.


They have 240 Vignoles, 180 Cabernet Franc, 100 Lemberger and Riesling, 80 Cabernet Sauvignon & Pinot Gris vines.


The winery consists of a wine storage/aging room, a tasting area & wine production area.
