Yes! It certainly was a great 2 hours spent in the Barrel Room eating with friends and family. Our neighbor Craig and his Mom and Dad, Craig’s girlfriend Jessica and her son and Mom, Marnie and Eric and Robin. Such a good group who all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Definitely a 5-Star Bistro! We highly recommend them – they are open Wednesday thru Sunday and reservations are highly suggested. (24509 Rudd Road Parma ID 83660, 208.946.5187 and firstname.lastname@example.org) Here is their Bistro Menu. Here is what we had! Enjoy! Left-Click any of the photos to see them enlarged.
Oh yes. And some awesome new wines! Chef Storm and his friend Chef John Mercer (see This Post) did a super, awesome job preparing these goodies. This was a special dinner put on by these two very talented Chefs. It will not be available at all times. Their Prime Rib, though, is just as good. Look at what we enjoyed today. (Left Click any of these photos to see them enlarged!)
Thank you so much Artist Stephanie and Chef Storm Hodge for another delightful brunch! These brunches are superb! 5-Star! (Bistro Weekend Menu – subject to change – or Parma Ridge Winery and Bistro) And many thanks to Garry and Donna for meeting us at the bistro for lunch, despite the highway detours! Here is what we had along with our 2016 Parma Ridge Winery Tre Bianchi and a 2015 Parma Ridge Winery Carmenere. Cheers! Left-Click any of these photos to see them enlarged.

Savor the Flavor
Offering both an in-house menu in the Tasting Room and custom menus for your scheduled event, Storm is looking forward to making your day special. From appetizers to full course meals, Parma Ridge offers both the taste and the view. Come by during tasting room hours to enjoy one of his delicious menu items, or contact us today to plan your special event!
I did mention to Stephanie that Robin and I have probably had close to all of the items offered on the menu. We have never had a bad selection, but there are some we prefer! The Parma Ridge Bistro is definitely a 5-Star winery bistro in the Snake River AVA.
Such a wonderful and exciting year! Such a pleasure to know and meet Chef Storm and Artist Stephanie Hodge. They are doing a terrific job at the winery and in the restaurant. If you have not been there on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday for some wine and an awesome meal, you need to do so. Stephanie has been sending me these articles on a regular basis and it is a good way for our readers to find out what is happening in the wine country of Idaho, especially at Parma Ridge. Happy Birthday to the Winery! Keep up the great work Chef Storm and Stephanie!
