Wines of the Hedges Family EstateOur first tasting of the new year is just around the corner on Thursday January 19, 2017 6:30pm at the Beanery Cafe in downtown Aitkin, MN. Please join us for the  Wines of the Hedges Family Estate  as we sample wines from this small family owed winery in the Red Mountain AVA of Washington State’s Columbia Valley.

The Hedges Family Estate is the perfect example of how terroir, dedication and winemaking skills work together to produce authentic memorable wines. Tom and Anne-Marie Hedges felt the potential for greatness back in 1989 when they first purchased 50 acres on Red Mountain. Today, this biodynamically-farmed property continues to be the foundation of the Hedges Family Estate, producing wines that express the exceptional character of Red Mountain.
