Join us for one of our best tastings of the year, Haden Fig! This label has become a household name at The Merch since we discovered it years ago. A second label of the prestigious Evesham Wood, Haden Fig is a great example of what we love about Oregon wine. These wines are naturally made, and bottled without filtration, allowing each vineyard’s character to come through.
