Based in Goldendale, Washington, in the breathtaking Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, the winery and its adjacent concert venue draw more than 75,000 guests to Maryhill annually. The winery partners with 13 growers and more than 20 unique vineyard locations in eight of Washington State’s 14 major American Viticultural Areas (AVAs), making it a true representation of the state’s wine.
The winery’s Spokane tasting room, located at Kendall Yards on the north bank of the Spokane River, is a long-time dream of owners Craig and Vicki Leuthold, both Spokane natives. “While we’re deeply tied to the Columbia River Gorge, we’re also very rooted in our hometown of Spokane,” Craig Leuthold says. “We feel right at home at Kendall Yards, and designed our tasting room to fit in with this beautiful community. Our tasting room is an inviting and relaxing place to experience our award-winning wines.”
The tasting room at Kendall Yards is open 12pm-8pm daily. The facility can also be rented for private events. Inquire by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or call 509-443-3832.
