Chateau Ste. Michelle
Chateau Ste. Michelle is Washington state’s founding winery, featuring award-winning wines and an unparalleled tasting experience at its historic Chateau and grounds near Seattle.
Columbia Valley vineyards lie in the rain shadow of the Cascade Mountains and receive just 6-8 inches of rainfall annually. Warm, sunny days and cool evening temperatures create ideal conditions for intense aroma and flavor development in the ripening grapes.
Sandy soils with low fertility and low water-holding capacity enable precise control of vine growth.
