Savor the flavor of finely crafted Glacier Country wine by stopping at a Western Montana winery during your next trip here. Our local wines feature regional flavors like Flathead cherries, wild huckleberries and local honey. Montana wineries are friendly and laid back, and, with spring right around the corner, you won’t want to miss sipping sauvignon blanc amid the fresh mountain air. Take a breather from the hustle and bustle and plan a tasting at one, or more, of these wineries—you’ll be glad you did!

A wine flight is the ideal way to sample Western Montana flavors.


Find old-fashioned mead at Hidden Legend Winery in Victor. Their award-winning mead is made with Montana honey and other local flavors like huckleberries and chokecherries. Even dandelions take the stage in their wines. You’ll also find traditional wine made from grapes grown in the Bitterroot Valley. Take a tour of the winery and see the mead and wine-making processes. Or opt for a glass of the Skalkaho Red. Also in the Bitterroot Valley, visit Trapper Peak Winery—a hidden gem in the Old West town of Darby. In Hamilton, pair a glass of local wine from Blodgett Canyon Cellars with a cheese platter.

End your day in Glacier Country with a glass of wine.
