A Business graduate from Washington State University who has an entrepreneurial spirit & passion for wine. 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 Missoula flood and steady breezes make it an ideal site for growing wine grapes.
Maryhill Winery is located in an exceptional climate for growing the highest quality wine grapes. With warm summer days, cool nights, moderate winters and a gentle breeze, the area has been referred to as the “Mediterranean of the Northwest.” The area supports a wide variety of grapes —including several difficult-to-grow varietals often stunted in many of the state’s other growing regions. Maryhill produces more than 50 award-winning wines, showcasing the full breadth of what Washington state has to offer. From Horse Heaven Hills to Yakima Valley and the Wahluke Slope, Maryhill works closely with select growing partners to produce wines that showcase the rich and diverse flavors of this unique growing region.
