Maryville Concert Series: A Victim of Its Own Popularity
By Bob Johnson
Sad news just in from one of our favorite concert venues in the Pacific Northwest — Maryville Winery. Here is the text of the letter that just went out from the winery to concert patrons…

At the request of, and in cooperation with, Washington State Department of Transportation and Washington State Patrol, Maryhill Winery & Amphitheater will be taking a one-year hiatus from our summer concert series.
In order to improve safety and traffic flow on Highway 14, we will be installing a secondary entrance/exit at the Maryhill Museum of Art. Unfortunately, the time required to design, engineer, obtain permits and construct the new entrance/exit requires that we suspend the concert series for one season.
We sincerely appreciate your understanding and are confident that this upgrade will dramatically enhance the experience of our concert attendees by decreasing bus turn around times and improving traffic safety on Highway 14.Remember you can always enjoy live music on our popular vine covered terrace every summer weekend, beginning Memorial Day through September, from 1pm-5pm by some of the best performers in the Pacific Northwest. Visit our website
for lineup details.

Fortunately, other wineries up and down the West Coast and across the country will continue their annual concert series this summer. In coming weeks, Wine Lines Online will be sharing many of those lineups with you… so stay tuned.
