Review of Silvara Vineyards

Owner description: With the beauty and majesty of the Cascade Mountain foothills as the backdrop for your experience at Silvara, it only takes a second for the stress of the outside world to leave you as you arrive. That's what owner and winemaker, Gary Seidler, saw when he decided to create his winery in this serene location. In the white of winter, as green takes over in the spring, or in the summertime with the wildflowers in full bloom, the crackle coming from stone fireplaces that frame our great-room, tasting room and outdoor patio say relax. Catch a live band outside in summer while you enjoy one of our cheese platters. Arrange a private tasting event. Or, plan to attend one of our gourmet winemaker dinners, offering a mouth-wowing food and wine pairing experience. We think you'll agree that Silvara Vineyards in Leavenworth is the perfect location for tasting award-winning wines that are smooth, bold and expressive and enjoying events that are truly personalized to your signature taste.

“Spent a fantastic afternoon here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

One thing my husband and I love to do is find a nice winery and share a bottle of wine with a meat/cheese platter and just sit out on the patio. At Silvara vineyards, this is just the perfect place to have such the afternoon.
We visited on an August Monday afternoon so it was quite slow. Only one staff member but her service was fantastic and we were in no rush.
I would recommend this place. And if you're visiting Leavenworth...which only took us 1/2 day to browse through the quaint town, this is a great place to wind up afterwards.

“Very good Chenin Blanc”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

We sampled the wines, enjoyed the Chenin Blanc the most. We sat out in front enjoying our wine and a smoked cheddar. We bought two bottles of the Chenin Blanc.

“Hospitality and Great Wines Set Silvara Apart”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

We had a wonderful visit to Silvara yesterday with two other couples. The setting is so nice, above the highway with a lovely view of the trains going by in the distance, the hillside and the Wenatchee River. Gary went above and beyond for our tasting, giving us thoughtful answers to our questions and teaching us in an unpretentious, down-to-earth manner. We decided to purchase a bottle of the 60/40 and bought salami, crackers, and a couple of cheeses from the cold case on site. Gary plated it for us and even included some tasty local cherries. We sat outside, enjoying our wine and treats. Eventually, Gary came outside and joined us, telling us more about the history of the winery and his journey into winemaking. All arrows point to this winery for great product, generous hospitality and a beautiful setting.

“Beautiful Winery Just Outside of Leavenworth”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2013

Wonderful wine tasting experience just minutes east of Leavenworth. The outside grounds are beautiful, with a fire pit, and plenty of outside seating. Perfect for a picnic on a warm summer day.

We went with a large group in April, and it was raining, so we tasted wines inside. The inside of the winery is spacious and rustic. We chatted with the owner, and enjoyed hearing about the tasty wines from a friendly woman from Vancouver, WA.

There is a reasonable tasting fee and this place is dog friendly!

If you are looking for a change of pace outside of Leavenworth, I highly recommend Silvara Winery.

“Escape to sophistication”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2013

Since moving here from a large city, it has been difficult to find a place that my husband and I can escape to for a little luxury. Silvara's tasting room has fulfilled that need and so much more. It has been our go-to place when we have friends and family visit. They swoon over the views from the tasting room and love getting to taste wines that they can't get anywhere else. My husband and I are just lucky enough to live close by, so we can indulge in our favorite wines of the valley anytime we please. I highly recommend stopping in here, meeting the wine maker himself, and enjoying some wine by the fire. If you're lucky enough to go when the weather is nice, sitting out on their manicured lawn and sipping wine over the wildflowers and orchards is a one of a kind experience.
