Maryhill Winery wins big in Seattle awards

Maryhill Winery won 42 awards at the recent Seattle Wine Awards, including two Best of Class awards for its 2015 Winemaker’s Red and 2014 Clifton Hill Cabernet Sauvignon. Maryhill also won nine double golds, 13 golds, 11 silvers and seven bronzes.

Spokane natives Craig and Vicki Leuthold founded the winery in 1999 on a bluff overlooking the Columbia River Gorge in southwest Washington. Maryhill opened two years later when it debuted its first vintage. Maryhill is slated to open a tasting room in Kendall Yards in fall.

Other wineries to win in the competition: Terra Blanca, Va Piano, Townshend Cellar, Barili Cellars, Cougar Crest Estate Winery, Latah Creek Wine Cellars and Green Bluff-based Hierophant Meadery.
