Celebrate Idaho Wine Month by meeting Earl Sullivan of Telaya Wine Co.

Meet Earl Sullivan, the co-owner of Telaya Wine Co. with his wife Carrie Sullivan, and a winemaker who admits his favorite hobby is work! Their passion for family and travel inspired them to consider a new career in wine, converging both of their previous careers. They desired being fully present for their childrens' childhoods while maintaining international connections and exposure to new styles and profiles. Telaya - a blend of their two favorite places, the Tetons and la playa - was born. 

Since their beginning, they have aimed to provide hospitality and deliver an amazing product to you. Quickly growing out of their first facility was a testament of their hard work and good wine. To accomodate their expanded wine library and production, they custom built their new facility on 32nd Street and held their grand opening in 2016. Their home in Garden City is perfectly situated next to the Boise River and can host small and large events including business meetings and birthdays.

So, what are you waiting for? Ready to relax with a glass of wine on a summer evening? Celebrate Idaho Wine Month by stopping by their winery and taproom, which is dog-friendly we might add, and bookmark their upcoming events here
