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.

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.
