Maryhill Winery opening two new satellite tasting rooms in major regional markets
Award-winning winery based in the Columbia River Gorge celebrates opening of Vancouver tasting room while announcing plans to open fourth tasting room in Woodinville’s historic Hollywood Schoolhouse.
As it prepares for the Grand Opening of its new tasting room on the waterfront in Vancouver, WA. on April 13-14, Maryhill Winery has its sights on a fourth location in Woodinville, WA., expanding its portfolio of premium regional wine destinations. The award-winning winery, based in the Columbia River Gorge town of Goldendale, WA. has experienced exciting growth in Spokane, WA., where its first satellite tasting room has quickly become a popular destination for Washington wine enthusiasts.
“With the expansion of our tasting rooms into other key markets in Washington and the Portland-Vancouver metro area, we are focused more than ever on making our high-quality, approachable wines accessible to more people,” says Craig Leuthold, co-owner of Maryhill Winery. “This is a big step for us, but one we have been planning for the past year. We’re excited to bring our immersive tasting room experience to more customers across the state.”
Maryhill Winery is putting the final touches on its 4,890-square-foot satellite tasting room in Vancouver in the city’s highly anticipated redeveloped waterfront district, The Waterfront Vancouver, USA. Located on the shores of the Columbia River just downstream of Maryhill’s flagship tasting room in Goldendale, WA., Waterfront Vancouver, USA is a 7.3-acre mixed-use development that has quickly become a destination, providing Maryhill a great opportunity to better serve its wine club members in the Portland-Vancouver area, and help others discover its wide variety of Washington wines. It’s the winery’s second satellite tasting room to open in two years. Its first, located in Kendall Yards in Spokane, has seen exponential growth since opening in November of 2017.
“Visiting Maryhill is an experience. Whether you visit our flagship winery in Goldendale, or our urban satellite tasting rooms in Spokane or Vancouver, you’ll find beautiful scenery, frequent live music and special events, food menus featuring small plates and charcuterie, and an expansive selection of award-winning wines,” says Leuthold, who co-founded Maryhill Winery in 1999 with his wife, Vicki. Together they have grown the company into one of Washington’s largest and most acclaimed wineries.
Maryhill’s Vancouver tasting room is located near Grant Street Pier, an iconic and interactive public art piece designed by nationally renowned artist Larry Kirkland. The public pier is just steps away from Maryhill’s expansive outdoor patio, where patrons will enjoy breathtaking views of the Columbia River and Mount Hood.
Next for Maryhill: The Seattle Area
Maryhill is already gearing up for its third satellite tasting room in Woodinville, which will be more than double the size of its Vancouver tasting room. Located just 30 minutes northeast of Seattle, Woodinville Wine Country is home to more than 100 wineries and tasting rooms representing every appellation in Washington.
Maryhill will occupy nearly 10,000 square feet of Woodinville’s historic Hollywood Schoolhouse, a beloved landmark since its construction by the Derby School District in 1912. The building has been everything from a school to a dance hall to a roller-skating rink. The Hollywood Schoolhouse has been restored to its turn-of-the century style, down to the grand ballroom’s hardwood floors, antique bar and brick fireplace. The anticipated opening of Maryhill’s tasting room at the Hollywood Schoolhouse is late fall of 2019 or early winter of 2020.
Maryhill will occupy the grand ballroom and upper floor of the Schoolhouse, along with a full commercial kitchen, which Maryhill will utilize for visitors, special events and rentals. Visitors will be able to enjoy Maryhill’s wide selection of Washington wines from both inside the lovingly restored building and outside among the beautiful gardens and outdoor balconies.
“We are looking forward to becoming the new stewards of this iconic landmark,” says Leuthold. “The Hollywood Schoolhouse, like Maryhill, is a family-owned business with deep roots in the community. And the location is just as breathtaking as our other Washington tasting rooms. It’s the ideal venue for reaching a new audience of wine lovers in the Seattle area.”
Maryhill sources more than 30 unique varietals, from Cabernet Sauvignon to Zinfandel, from some of the most highly regarded vineyards in Washington. Its portfolio includes more than 50 unique wines that are the perfect example of the diversity available from Washington State.
