The Langguth family has respected wineries on the Mosel river in Germany. In the early 1980's, with all the excitement centered around Washington state Rieslings, they decided to try their hand here, and sent one of the sons to WA with plenty of money to start a fine winery. It was opened in 1982. Jurgen Grieb, a graduate of a German winemaking institute, was brought over from Germany to be it's winemaker.
Throughout it's history, they've helped many fledgling Washington state wineries get started with custom crushes and lending of facilities.
In 1987, the Snoqualmie Falls Holding Co. (the owners of
Snoqualmie Winery) bought
controlling interest in the winery, and installed Mike Januik as
winemaker. Since then changed name to
Saddle Mountain Winery.
