“I founded Silvara Cellars in 2007. After completing the winemaking and viticulture program at UC Davis, I went straight to work in winery cellars, and found several mentors in some of Washington State’s top winemaking talents.  

 

“I learned a great deal of what I know from the supremely talented Craig Mitrakul, an alum of Chateau Ste. Michelle, Three Rivers Winery, and Ryan Patrick Vineyards, and picked up many tricks of the trade from Kendall Mix, formerly of Chateau Ste. Michelle, now at Wahluke Wine Co., and “one of Washington’s most talented winemakers,” according to Great Northwest Wine. 

 

“For our white wines, I’ve tapped consultant David Forsyth, a “top Washington winemaker” according to Wine Spectator, famous for his work at Hogue Cellars and Mercer Wine Estates. And for the reds, I work with Charlie Hoppes, a Seattle Magazine “Winemaker of the Year” who has produced a Spectator Top 100 wine. 

 

“Today, my sole focus is on crafting wines of pure varietal-character, typical of site, and above all, delicious with every sip.” 


— Gary Seidler, owner and winemaker

2019 Chardonnay WEBSITE.jpg
2020 Silvara Cellars Chardonnay

Columbia Valley, WA

 

Winemaker’s Notes: Light golden in color, this Chardonnay has the kind of great flavor that gets us excited to see how it will develop both in the glass and in the bottle! While France is Chardonnay’s original home, it gracefully adapts to a divergent array of terroirs, producing high-quality wine in America, as our unique, dry-climate vineyard source has thoroughly demonstrated.

Tasting Note: “Fresh citrus, bosc pear, and notes of green and yellow apple are complemented by fine minerality and the slightest hint of lemon. This wine is influenced by French and American oak, to add harmony, roundness, and suppleness to the palate.“

2020 Silvara Cellars High Mountain Huckleberry
2020 High Mountain Huckleberry WEBSITE.jpg

Columbia Valley, WA

Winemaker’s Notes: We’ve always believed that fruit wine had serious potential, able to offer complexity, precision, and the kind of deliciousness that makes you crave an immediate second glass. And yet, after years of tasting every example we could get our hands on, we couldn’t find one that lived up to our expectations. So we decided to take matters into our own hands. 

 

The result—our High Mountain Huckleberry Rosé—is everything we’ve been searching for in fruit wine! Our rendition finds a scintillating balance between mouthwatering acidity and sweetness of fruit, leveraging huckleberry’s natural talents to “amp up” some of the finest  Horse Heaven Riesling from the Pacific Northwest. The result is a rosé that’s slightly sweet, tart and floral,  but crisp and refreshing!

Tasting Note: “Lifted notes of lychee, orange blossom, ginger, and sweet spice dance alongside  strawberries, raspberries, red cherries, and—of course—huckleberries, all of it lingering with hints of candied orange peel and white peaches. A word of warning: There’s a serious chance that our High Mountain Huckleberry Rosé will ruin you for other fruit wines from this point forward. But we’re absolutely sure that it’s worth the risk!”

 

Technical Details:

Vineyards: Canoe Ridge Vineyard

Winemaker’s Notes: France’s Champagne may have a reputation for producing the greatest sparkling wine, spectacular sparklers can be made worldwide—and we like to think that our Blanc de Noirs can go toe to toe with the best of them! The Wine Panel called our Blanc de Noirs "One of the best sparkling wines from the Northwest we've ever tried." Blanc de Noirs is a difficult style to master, made in the traditional Champenoise method and crafted primarily from red grapes, requiring precise picking of only the best vineyard blocks, at exactly the right time. For this wine, we found the “Goldilocks moment” to harvest, and the fruit was spectacular. Like the best Champagnes, our sparkling wine undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle, after which we allow it to rest on the spent yeast for a full two years, imparting elegance, depth, and complexity. The results surpassed even our own lofty hopes!

Tasting Note: “The burnished gold color of this complex, Champagne-method sparkling wine immediately lets you know that it’s a bottling of unique complexity and depth—a result of impeccable Columbia Valley Pinot Noir and two years of aging on the lees. Aromas of apricots, caramelized peaches, hazelnuts, and pears precede a palate of effusive, crisp autumn apple flavors. The palate is perked up even further with delicate, laser-precise bubbles, hints of marzipan, and even a suggestion of crème brûlée. It remains lively and mineral through the finish, and beyond versatile at the dinner table.”
