Who would ever thought that someone (Judy) holding a Master of Science degree in Zoology from the University of Connecticut Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department and her hubby (Don) who holds a Master's Degree in Civil Engineering from Washington State University would end up owning a winery in Manson, Washington! Well we are here to tell you it is the truth and today the Phelps invited the entire community and folks from out of town to help celebrate their tenth year as owners of the Hard Row to Hoe Vineyards.

The party was to begin at 6:30 but by 6:00 it was difficult to find a place to park or sit! Helping make this a special night was music by the Kevin Jones Band, one of our favorite local bands. Be sure to check out Kevin's website
for his calendar and contact information.
Judy kicked off the evening by welcoming everyone and introducing the band. Temperature was a perfect 84 degrees at show time and it didn't take long for Kevin to have the place rocking.
About the middle of the first set Don brought out a huge anniversary cake, which he cut into many pieces. We all shared in this special treat.
Over the past ten years Don and Judy Phelps have received numerous awards for their wines and not just local awards. Their story is truly amazing and worth your time to take a look at their website. We are so proud to have Hard Row to Hoe Vineyards as members of the Manson Chamber of Commerce and we wish them many more years of success.
