Gouger Cellars was established in 2009 by owner/winemaker Gary Gouger after graduation for the University of Adelaide, Australia. Gouger Cellars produces internationally awarded wines with a specialty in bold reds. In addition to wine, Gouger Cellars also serves food the most popular of which is the Baked Brie with roasted garlic. Gouger Cellars has roof-top seating where you can see the beautiful mountains or sit out back and watch the beautiful alpacas. Both options have shaded areas. Gouger Cellars is only 1 mile off the I5 interstate at exit 14. Just follow the signs. Friday night from 5-8 is free pasta Friday - buy a glass of wine and get a free bowl of home made pasta at no charge. Sauces vary call for information. Wines include Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, Malbec, Viognier, Chardonnay and 3 semi-sweet wines. We look forward to your visit!

This was such a cute place. Previously was an old firehouse and the owner (who is very personable) has done a great job altering the building into a very inviting tasting/drinking area. Great outdoor seating with great views; you can see Mt St Helens from...More

Decent wines and the owner was very friendly. $10 tastings of several red wines. Red wine ice cream! Try it. Off the Beaten patch outside of Vancouver.

The quality of these wines is amazing, and the owner is truly knowledgeable. Love the setting and visit often. Gary continually tries to create events that make the winery visit more enjoyable. The wines are the best in the local region. Make sure to try!!

The owner, Gary, has made an old fire station into a fun place to go wine tasting. He even serves food, including homemade ice cream. The wine is very good too and you'll probably leave with at least a couple of bottles.
