It was 1986 when Tom and his wife Anne-Marie marketed their first Washington State Cabernet/Merlot blend to foreign buyers exclusively before going domestic and opening up North American distribution in 1990. In 1991 they purchased acreage in the Red Mountain AVA.
Brother Pete Hedges joined the winery as General Manager, becoming head Winemaker in 2002. Son Christophe and his wife Maggie began working for the winery soon thereafter and Hedges Cellars became Hedges Family Estate.
Our future direction is clear: we will continue to work as a family to unite farming, winemaking, and the promotion of our wines and the Red Mountain AVA.
