Chef Hop Vine (formerly The Crush Tour) has been an event of the Lewis Clark Valley Chamber of Commerce since 2012. It first began as a farm and winery tour to inform and educate the LC Valley about the financial impact that farming, organic growing and wine making has on the LC Valley. The tour provided a unique networking opportunity for local farmers, growers, producers, business owners, and community members. It then grew to become a beer/wine/food tour around to area wineries and breweries with a taste of locally produced food.
We are changing things up this year to provide the Lewis Clark Valley an opportunity to experience surrounding areas’ wine, beer and food.
