Short Description: Mt St Helens Cellars
Long Description:

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.

Lilac Days 2020
April to May

History of Hulda Klager Lilac Gardens
Woodland is perhaps best known as the home of Hulda Klager (1863–1960), who was a prolific breeder of lilacs. The “Lilac Lady” Hulda Klager née Thiel, was long the pride of Woodland. She immigrated from Germany to Wisconsin in 1865, when she was just two years old, and came West when her family bought a farm in Woodland. Later she married and settled down on the family farm. When a friend gave her a book about Luther Burbank, she began creating flowers, hybridizing new varieties of roses, dahlias, even apples, and lilacs in particular. By 1920 she had created such a magnificent array of new hand-pollinated lilacs that she opened her garden on Lilac Week every spring for visitors. The floodwaters of 1948 rolled over her garden, destroying every shrub and hand-pollinated lilac. The loss grieved those who visited her garden or who had purchased her lilacs. From all over the Northwest, people sent starts of her lilacs from their own gardens. By 1950, at the age of eighty-seven, Klager, who loved flowers and who had been honored by the state of Washington as well as such organizations as the nationally famous arboretum at Cambridge, Massachusetts, again opened her home for Lilac Week. After her death in 1960, the Woodland Federated Garden Club, shocked that the garden might be bulldozed for industry, succeeded in raising money to buy it and have it declared a state and national historic site.
