History & Geography
Beginning as negociants selling their first Hedges-branded Columbia Valley wine to the Swedish government in the late eighties, the Hedges quickly realized the importance of site for producing world-class wines. Scraping together enough cash for a down-payment, they purchased a fifty-acre parcel on the dusty southwest slope of Red Mountain, a barely-known growing region at the time. The Hedges then dedicated their lives to spreading the great wines of Red Mountain around the world and have now acquired another seventy acres and built a stunning French Chateau at the center of their organic farm and vineyards. More than thirty years later, the second generation, Christophe and Sarah, continue their parents’ vision. With an equal amount of passion for the land, they spearheaded the transition to Biodynamic and organic farming. Now, over half of the vineyards and gardens are Demeter-certified Biodynamic, with the rest of the estate in transition.
