Named the 2015 Pacific Northwest Winery of the Year by Wine Press Northwest, Maryhill Winery is located in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area in Goldendale, Washington. Maryhill is perched on the northern side of the Columbia River, against the stunning backdrop of Mt. Hood, in the Southern tip of the Columbia Valley.
The area surrounding Maryhill Winery is steeped in rich history – from the Great Missoula floods which created a terroir perfect for growing grapes through its deep, relatively low nutrient and well drained deposits to the entrepreneurial spirit of millionaire attorney and road pioneer, Sam Hill who sought to create an independent farming community named after his wife, Mary, and in turn, built what is now the home to a world-class cultural institution known as the Maryhill Museum.
In 2000, construction began on the winery production facility and tasting room just west of Maryhill Museum. In May 2001, Maryhill Winery opened its doors as a true destination winery and is now known for its diverse portfolio of exceptional quality and affordable wines, as well as the stunning landscape, a world-class summer concert series and tournament-quality bocce courts. In 2012, the expansion of the winery to include an exclusive Reserve Tasting Room was completed to showcase library, small-lot varietals and blends and single-vineyard wines.
Today, Maryhill is one of Washington state’s largest and most-visited wineries. The winery draws more than 75,000 guests to Maryhill annually, while the region offers warm summer days, year-round appeal and excellent winemaking and continues to gain recognition as an emerging wine destination.
