About Sarah Hedges Goedhart:
Sarah was born in Buenos Aires and spent her early years traveling the globe with her family. In 1986 her parents settled in Seattle to start Hedges Cellars. A vineyard was planted in 1990 in Eastern Washington, Red Mountain area. In the summer Sarah along with her brother Christophe worked in the vineyard and in later years at the new winery built on that same location. Sarah’s love for the industry soon would turn into a career choice. She attended the University of San Diego and graduated with a degree in business and philosophy. She later attended UC Santa Barbara to study chemistry and at the same time worked for Santa Barbara winery managing the tasting room and helping with the harvest. From 2003 to 2005 she worked for Preston Vineyards in Healdsburg, Sonoma County, doing wine production work
In 2005, she decided to move back home and start working for the family winery. She joined the winery full-time in 2006 as Assistant Winemaker and two years later had completed her certificate degree in enology from Washington State University and started the label Goedhart Family with her husband. After her uncle and mentor retired in 2015, Sarah became head-winemaker.
Sarah’s love for fermentation doesn’t stop with wine. She bakes rustic bread in the wood-fired oven using a starter she created with our biodynamic grapes. You can also find yogurt and sauerkraut crocks bubbling away in her kitchen. She loves to cook, garden and keeps it all in check with daily yoga. She also has a deep love for animals big and small. She lives in Richland, Washington with her husband, Brent, their sons Lucas and Trevor, their dogs Otto, Shadow and Jackson, their 4 chickens and a turtle named Cowboy. Her favorite wine is whichever wine she is drinking with good friends.
