A true representation of Washington State wine.
Maryhill works closely with select growing partners to produce wines that showcase the rich and diverse flavors of the unique growing region of Washington state. Encompassing more than a third of the state, the Columbia Valley is by far Washington’s largest growing region at nearly 11 million acres.
The Columbia Valley American Viticultural Area (designated wine growing region) or AVA lies in the Columbia River Plateau, through much of central and southern Washington State, with a small section crossing into the neighboring state of Oregon. The AVA includes the drainage basin of the Columbia River and its tributaries through much of Washington.
Nestled only 30 feet from the shores of the Columbia River, the Gunkel family has farmed the fertile lands around Maryhill Winery for three generations and is considered our “estate” vineyard. With warm summer days, cool nights, moderate winters and a gentle breeze, the Columbia Gorge region supports a wide variety of grapes - including several difficult-to-grow varieties often stunted in many of the state’s other vineyards.
Maryhill Winery is known for a portfolio of more than 50 exceptional quality and affordable wines. From Horse Heaven Hills to Yakima Valley and the Wahluke Slope, Maryhill partners with more than 20 unique vineyard locations in half of the 14 major American Viticultural Areas (AVAs) in Washington, making it a true representation of Washington’s winemaking prowess.
