History

In 1999, Craig and Vicki Leuthold established Maryhill Winery and set out to produce premier wines on the land adjacent to where Hill sought to fulfill his dream years before...

Originally hailing from Spokane, WA, Craig and Vicki Leuthold cashed in their corporate careers and followed their dream of starting a winery to Goldendale, WA. Located at the Southern tip of the Columbia Valley appellation, the area is not only an area of unsurpassed natural beauty; its warm climate, Walla Walla silt loam soil resting on remnants of the Missoula flood and steady breezes make it an ideal site for growing wine grapes.

and is inspired every day by

In 2000, the Leutholds began construction on their winery just west of Maryhill Museum on a bluff overlooking Gunkel Vineyard, one of the state's oldest and most established vineyard sites.  The Gunkel family has successfully farmed the fertile lands surrounding Maryhill for four generations, growing world-class wine grapes used by the Leutholds and many other Washington state wine producers today.

 

 

In May 2001, Maryhill Winery opened its doors as one of only 100 wineries in the state.

 
Today, there are more than 800 Washington wineries. With a lot of hard work and determination, the Leutholds achieved their dream of creating a true destination winery with a 3,000-square-foot tasting room, a beautiful vine-covered arbor, world-class bocce courts, picnic grounds and an adjacent 4,000 seat amphitheater that hosts a world-class summer concert series. The winery has grown from a modest 4,300 case production in 1999 to more than 90,000 cases today, making it the 9th largest winery in the state.
 

Awarded "2014 Winery of the Year" by San Francisco International Wine Competition, "Top 10 Winery of the World" by The World Association of Wine Writers and Journalists, "2013 Winemaker of the Year" by Indy International Wine Competition, “2009 Washington Winery of the Year” by Wine Press Northwest and "Best Destination Winery" by Seattle Magazine, Maryhill produces more than 50 award-winning varietals and blends. The winery welcomes more than 80,000 visitors per year, has a 1,500+ member wine club and is distributed across the United States.
