Mission Mountain Winery is a family owned winery located on the West Shore of Flathead Lake (the largest natural fresh water lake west of the Mississippi), in Dayton Montana. There is even access to the winery by boat. It is the first Bonded Winery in the state of Montana. The initial Vineyard was started twentyeight years ago and the Winery’s first vintage was 1984. Tom Campbell Jr. is the man behind the winemaking. Following the wisdom of his father Tom Sr., Tom Jr. trained at the University of California at Davis in Enology (Winemaking ), he then worked as an enologist at several different winery’s including: Jekel and Shiloh in California and the Ste. Michelle and Quail Run (now Covey Run) in Washington. He then started Mission Mountain Winery in Montana with his father in 1984. Tom Jr. and his wife Hema also started Horizon’s Edge Winery in Zillah,Washington in 1985 and sold it in 1999. The Winery currently produces approximately 6,500 cases of wine a year. The wines produced include: Vin Gris, Riesling, Monster Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, a “blush” wine called Sundown, an exceptional Muscat Canelli dinner wine, Nouveaux Riche a dessert Muscat Canelli, Ice Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Monster Red a Merlot - Cabernet blend, Cream Sherry and a Port. The vineyards in Montana grow Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and small amounts of Riesling, Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer. The other grapes are grown in our own vineyards in the Rattlesnake Hills of Washington and from other vineyards that we have specifically selected for their high quality. It is amazing that some of the finest wines in the world come from this small winery in northwest Montana. The wines have met with excellent acceptance by Montana Residents and visitors to the winery from all 50 States and 30 Foreign Countries as well reviews from national and international competitions and wine writers.
