Of all the wineries in the Chelan / Manson area, Hard Row to Hoe is my favorite. The tap room is small and cozy; the story of the wineries inception is hilarious; the wine is complex and delicious. Any tour of the lake is not complete without a visit to this winemaking gem.

As you spend an hour or so with Rudy you will be immersed in the ambience of his passion for his wines. He will educate you even if you think you are well versed in wine. His style is contagious. What a lovely way to spend part of an afternoon.

The decor aligns with their theme (I won't spoil the surprise, but you'll know when you see it). The wines are good. The tasting fee is waived with a purchase. The... More

This is one of our favorites. Danielle is such an excellent attraction here. John's ok. But the desert wine is so outstanding you must by a bottle if you like a sweet after dinner sip. really good. We have taken friends here and they love it.

While visiting Leavenworth, we stopped in the tasting room. At first the tasting fee seemed high, but my wife and I split the tasting and enjoyed their wine. We bought a bottle.The employee seemed very knowledgable. Great experience!

This is the first time we have visited " Hard Row to Hoe" and the wine was perfect. So is the decor. Danielle told the story of the vineyards and did such a great job of it. We loved the wine and bought many bottles. We definetely will make this winery our first visit when we return to Chelan!
