July’s Label of the Month is a choice from our new home of Lake Chelan. It’s a tribute to the wineries and grape growers of the area that have worked to establish the Lake Chelan region as a unique wine destination. One of the most unique wineries in the valley is Hard Row to Hoe. As they say on their website, the “name celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit of a man who ran a row boat taxi service on Lake Chelan in the 1930’s ferrying miners by rowboat to a brothel located at Point Lovely.” That theme extends from their name to their tasting room, their label designs and the wine names. A few of their wine names are Shameless Hussy, Laid Back Cab, Iron Bed Red, and the soon to be released Double Dip. Their labels show the trek of the miners across Lake Chelan to Point Lovely.
Fun labels for sure.
