The Hogue Cellars is one of Washington’s most popular and critically acclaimed wineries. Founded by Mike and Gary Hogue in 1982, The Hogue Cellars is in the heart of Washington State’s wine country located in Yakima Valley – one of the state’s premier grape growing appellations. Centrally located in Prosser, Wash., the winery is a state-of-the-art facility that sources the highest quality fruit from Columbia Valley’s best appellations including Yakima Valley, Horse Heaven Hills, Wahluke Slope and Red Mountain. When Hogue Cellars began, it was the 19th bonded winery in Washington and today there are over 550 wineries. The winery’s goal was to sell 20,000 cases of wine by their 10th year in business. Hogue Cellars grew way beyond expectations, a testament to their high quality wines from one of the world’s premier wine growing regions – the Columbia Valley.
Farming has been a way of life for the Hogue family for more than 60 years. They have grown grapes, apples, hops, mint and other crops in eastern Washington’s Columbia Valley. The family continues to produce specialty apples in addition to Concord and vinifera wine grapes. The Hogue’s first planted wine grapes in 1979. After several years of growing Riesling fruit for other wineries, Mike and Gary decided to open The Hogue Cellars in 1982. The first vintage produced 2,000 cases of Chenin Blanc and Riesling and the wines both garnered gold medals the following year. Today, the winery produces more than 650,000 cases of award-wining wines, featuring a range of 18 products between its three core lines – Hogue, Genesis and the Reserves – as well as a special selection of Terroir wines available exclusively at the winery.
