TELAYA WINE CO.
Old-World Inspired, Idaho Crafted
Building A Dream
We built Telaya on a foundation of family and hard work. These two principles guide our philosophy in handcrafting Idaho and Washington wines, and our focus on hospitality.
Telaya started in 2008, when we produced 50 cases of carefully conceived wine. We’ve grown quite a bit since then. Our facility–which includes a full production space and tasting room–is located right on the Boise Greenbelt, just minutes from downtown and few feet from the Boise River. Guests can enjoy tastes, glasses and bottles of our Washington and Idaho wine while overlooking the scenic river.
Join us! We invite you to taste the fruits of our labor: exceptional wines, which pair well with beautiful views and great company.

“Through Telaya–a blend of their two favorite places, the Tetons and la playa–they could establish a home base from which they could take others on a journey.”
Establishing a winery would allow them to grow and research together while also modeling the values of hard work, perseverance, integrity, and accountability to their boys. Through Telaya–a blend of their two favorite places, the Tetons and la playa–they could establish a home base from which they could take others on a journey.
This concept remains fundamental to our wines at Telaya: when we are traveling, wine can take us home, and when we are home, wine transports us on a comforting escape. For Telaya, wine is both a journey and a meeting place, which is why we named our flagship blend Turas–Irish for “journey.”
In the beginning, we proudly sourced the fruits from our neighbors in Washington, due to our familiarity with Columbia Valley wines and vineyards there. We began with just 50 cases, a testament to our emphasis on hand-crafted wines. After establishing deep-rooted relationships with Idaho vineyards, we pulled fruit from Idaho for the very first time in 2012.
OWNERS & WINEMAKERS
Earl & Carrie Sullivan
Prior to Telaya’s first blend in 2008, Earl and Carrie were embarking on independent careers, Earl traveling internationally as the COO of a pharmaceutical company and Carrie practicing as a small animal and exotic veterinarian while raising their two boys.
It was in Cabo San Lucas that Earl and Carrie made the decision to create a shared space where their love of family and travel could merge. Historically, that made sense for the two, as they initially met abroad studying tropical ecology in the Galapagos Islands. Walking along the beaches of Cabo, they considered all the ways that wine could converge their two career paths and allow them to both be fully present for their boys’ childhoods.
Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in food and beverage but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Earl Sullivan, founder of Telaya Wine Co., located in Garden City, Idaho.
For Earl, wine was reminiscent of his international travel, where he was constantly exposed to new styles and profiles. For Carrie, winemaking fulfills her passion for science. Establishing a winery would allow them to grow and research together while also modeling the values of hard work, perseverance, integrity, and accountability to their boys. Through Telaya–a blend of their two favorite places, the Tetons and la playa–they could establish a home base from which they could take others on a journey.
