Our winery is nestled in the hills of Silverlake Washington. The view of Mt St Helens provides a picturesque back drop for the winery and is the inspiration for our name. We offer an array of premium red and white wines made from grapes grown in Washington State as well as a selection of fruit and berry wines each of which is sure to please the palate as well as the senses. Our wine maker, Gary, has been
making wine for over 27 years, the first 12 years in the Santa Clara valley of California. Santa Clara Valley is a designated American Viticulture Area (AVA). About 15 years ago Gary and his wife June moved back to Southwest Washington where they grew up. Gary continued making wine here in Washington, traveling each year to eastern Washington to purchase grapes for his hobby. As time passed and the hobby grew into a passion, Mt St Helens Cellars erupted onto the landscape in the shadows of the mountain.
The owners, Gary and June, grew up in southwest Washington and relocated to Central California in the early 1970s. In the mid-1980s they planted a small vineyard of Chardonnay, Zinfandel and table grapes about 24 vines in all. A couple years later the vineyard was expanded with 950 more vines, 450 Merlot and 500 Cabernet Sauvignon. The next year the last phase of the vineyard was planted with 50 Sangiovese vines. By 1992 Wilder Vineyards was fully established.
We specialize in Washington red varietals and blends from the great American Viticulture regions of the eastern part of the state as well as fruit wines, such as huckleberry, blueberry and blackberry, with all fruit sourced locally. In addition, we make apricot, peach and Asian pear fruit wines as well as our very popular Coldwater Riesling. Most of our wines have unforgettable names related to Mt St Helens. These award winning wines are not only great wines, they also make terrific souvenirs from the Mt St Helens of Southwest Washington.
