Our History


Coat of Arms from the Koenig's Austrian hometown


The Koenig Family immigrated from Austria to the United States and settled in Ketchum, Idaho where they were in the hotel business for many years.

The original Koenig Distillery & Winery grounds


Greg Koenig and his brother, Andy grew up visiting their grandparents who were farmers in the Treasure Valley. The brothers eventually founded Koenig Distillery and Winery together in 1995.

The original Koenig Distillery & Winery Tasting Room and Production Facility


The Koenig brothers opened their first Distillery and Winery building located off Plum Rd. Production of both wines and spirits happened under one roof. Their goal was to produce fine wines and spirits using traditional European methods and locally grown fruit.

Our current crush pad and production facility


Wine production had officially outgrown the the quaint Distillery & Winery building. Greg Koenig purchased the current 10-acre Estate and built a 12,000 square foot production facility large enough for Koenig wine production and his custom crush clients.

Greg Koenig began making wine for a new local vineyard, SCORIA. This marked the beginning of an important partnership between Koenig and SCORIA.

The new Tasting Room that opened in Fall of 2016


After many designs and years of waiting, our new Tasting Room was finally built and opened in the fall of 2016. The Koenig brothers were now officially operating independently of each other.


Koenig Vineyards sells to James & Sydney Nederend of SCORIA, the next generation Idaho winemakers and vintners.
