Hard Row to Hoe

We chat with Judy Phelps, winemaker for Hard Row to Hoe Vineyards in Manson, Wash. The winery changed from Balsamroot Winery because customers couldn't remember the name. The new brand refers to a local story of a brothel at Point Lovely that served miners across the lake. A local entrepreneur started a rowboat taxi service, hence the name "Hard Row to Hoe."
