The legacy of the Hewetts spans more than 100 years in the Lewis-Clark Valley. They were homesteaders in the area before moving to Arrow near Juliaetta, Idaho, in 1959. Rivaura, their most recent joint venture, was born of a vision that would pave the way for the next generations of Hewetts to make their mark. Turning the family estate into vineyards, given ideal geological conditions for wine growing, was a natural next step. That vision came to life in 2014 when the research was done and the first vines were planted. What remains constant across the last century is the Hewett family’s close working relationship with and reverence for the land they call home.
