Jacob Williams is a family owned boutique winery located in the beautiful Columbia Gorge and named in honor of Brad Gearhart’s two sons, Jacob and William. For over a decade, Brad and 40+ year wine-making veteran John Haw have dedicated themselves to producing high-quality wines sourced from the finest vineyards in the region.
We have the longest growing season in Eastern Washington. Our ability to ripen Southern Rhone and Northern Italian varietals allows consistent quality. The tempering effect of the Columbia River is a benefit spring, fall, and especially in the summer heat. With annual rainfall under 12 inches falling in the late fall, winter and early spring, we are able to control the growth of our vines.
Maryhill Winery is Washington State’s premier destination winery featuring one of the Northwest’s most desirable micro-climates for growing grapes. Picnicking is encouraged on our spacious and scenic [maryhill winery] covered arbor with perfect river views. Possibly the most enjoyable part of Maryhill, from a grower’s standpoint, is the wide variety of grapes the area will support – including several difficult to grow varietals often stunted in many of the region’s other vineyards. They focus their vineyards on producing premium red wines, with special attention to Syrah and Sangiovese. Their larger vineyards include blocks of Zinfandel, Viognier, Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon vines, as well as smaller sections for Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Grenache.
