Mt St Helens Cellars

Mt St Helens Cellars Winery is nestled in the hills of Silverlake, Washington. The view of Mount St. Helens provides a picturesque backdrop for the winery. We offer an array of red and white wines made from grapes grown in Washington State, each of which is sure to please the palette as well as the senses. Even though we are a new winery, making wine is not new to us.

Our winemaker, Gary has been making wine for over 20 years, the first eight years in the Santa Clara Valley of California. About ten years ago Gary and his wife June moved back to southwest Washington where they grew up. Gary continued making wine here in Washington, travelling each year to eastern Washington to purchase grapes for his hobby. As time passed and the hobby grew into a passion Mount St. Helens Cellars erupted onto the landscape in the shadows of the mountain.

Wine Tasting Room is located at 1254 Mt St Helens Way at Exit 49 and I-5 – Castle Rock, WA 98611
Wine Tasting Room Hours:
Friday 12 to 6
