THE HOGUE CELLARS™, founded in 1982 by Mike and Gary Hogue, is located in Eastern Washington's Columbia Valley, the premiere grape growing region of the state. The climate and soils of the Columbia Valley produce grapes with intense fruit flavors and high natural acidity. The wines have a liveliness and ripe, zesty fruit flavors that make them ideal complements to a wide range of food.
Very good. Apples and lemons in a full bodied style that is awkwardly between an off-dry Riesling and a dessert wine. We had with a not-too-sweet apple tart but it was better on its own as a chilled down after dinner sipper.
Sweet, light and refreshing. Perfect for a summer night and pairs wonderfully with thai food.
Best US produced late harvest riesling for the money
Great for the beginner wine drinker. Goes down very easy. Light, sweet, and fruity.
