Description: “This complex, decadent wine exudes indulgent aromas and flavors of honey, orange marmalade, dried apricot with hints of ginger spice. The mouthful is viscous and velvety with natural acidity to balance the sweetness and provide a lasting finish.” -Bob Bertheau, Head Winemaker

Chateau Ste. Michelle is the oldest winery in Washington state with some of the most mature vineyards in the Columbia Valley. The winery’‘s roots date back to after the Repeal of Prohibition, when the Pommerelle Wine Company and the National Wine Company were formed in 1934. They merged in 1954 to form American Wine Growers and produced mostly fortified sweet wines. In 1967, American Wine Growers began a new line of premium vinifera wines called “Ste. Michelle Vintners” under the direction of legendary California winemaker and consultant Andre Tchelistcheff. Ste. Michelle Vintners planted its first vines at its Cold Creek Vineyard in Eastern Washington in 1972. In 1976 Ste. Michelle Vintners built a French style Chateau in Woodinville, outside of Seattle, and changed its name to Chateau Ste. Michelle to reflect its new facility. Today, Chateau Ste. Michelle is not only recognized for pioneering vinifera grape growing in the Columbia Valley, but is also a leader in modern day viticultural research. The Chateau Ste. Michelle’‘s has a diverse collection of premium Washington wines, which includes Columbia Valley wines styled to bring out the varietal character of the region; Single Vineyard wines to epitomize the terroir of our best vineyards; and our Artist Series meritage, a special Bordeaux-style blend, crafted for power and longevity.
