Back in 1982, when brothers, Gary and Mike Hogue, started Hogue Cellars in Washington's Yakima Valley, it was the state's 19th bonded winery. Today Washington is home to over 650 wineries and produces a collective 20 million gallons of wine per year. As time would tell, the Hogue Cellar's adventure, that began over 25 years ago, exploded into one of Washington's most influential and quality-driven wine companies.
Hogue Cellars is a cornerstone of the Washington wine scene. With innovative wines and rigorous research to keep their wines in a state of constant improvement and premium quality as their steady benchmark, Hogue has a lot to offer a wide range of wine consumers, at price points that will make even the most frugal smile.
Hogue's winemaking team has been a driving force behind screw cap closure studies and is currently investigating and researching the promising arena of tannin management.
