Greg joined The Hogue Cellars in 2013 from Valley of the Moon winery in the heart of California’s Sonoma Valley. He spent more than seven years at Valley of the Moon, honing the region’s microclimates and soils to ultimately hand-craft wines to reflect that sense of place – a skill that will prove most useful when navigating the Columbia Valley’s unique terroir. Prior to his time at Valley of the Moon, Greg served as enologist and later winemaker for R.H. Phillips, expanding his acumen into the super and ultra-premium winemaking environment which ultimately groomed him for taking on the role at a nationally-distributed winery in Sonoma and now at The Hogue Cellars.
Jim joined The Hogue Cellars after graduation in 2001 as a lab intern and was soon hired on as the lab manager. Jim has worked in many roles since joining Hogue, including production enologist, assistant winemaker, winemaker of white wine and now overseeing the production of red wines.
