Washington and Oregon are among the best and most prolific wine-producing states
in the Country. Here is one award-winning favorite wine enthusiasts should make time
The Columbia Gorge is famous for its pears, apples, cherries and other fine fruit. Not until
the 1970’s, 80’s and 90’s did some skilled winemakers realize the gorge climate and soil was
perfectly suited for grape growing. Today, the region is known as “a world of wine in 40 miles”.
In 1999, Craig and Vicki Leuthold
established Maryhill Winery to produce
premier wines adjacent to Sam Hill’s family
mansion, that later became the Maryhill
Museum. Located in Goldendale, Washington,
Maryhill Winery is a destination unto itself
with a 3,000-square-foot tasting room, covered
arbor, picnic grounds and a 4,000-seat
amphitheater. The winery produces 80,000+
cases of wine each year.
Named “Pacific Northwest Winery of the
Year” by Wine Press Northwest, 2015; “Winery
of the Year” by San Francisco International,
2014; “Top 10 Wineries of the World” by
WAWWJ, 2014; “Winemaker of the Year” by
Indy International, 2013; and “Washington
Winery of the Year” by Wine Press Northwest,
2009, Maryhill produces 19 varietals and 27
award-winning wines. With more than 75,000
visitors per year, the winery has a 900+ member
wine club and is distributed across the U.S.
