About the Winery
At Chateau Ste. Michelle, our award-winning wines interweave with our rich heritage to create a wine experience you'll never forget. Celebrating more than 50 years of winemaking, we have combined Old World winemaking traditions with New World innovation. In fact, Chateau Ste. Michelle is one of the few premium wineries in the world with two state-of-the-art wineries, one for red and one for white. The whites are made at the Chateau in Woodinville, WA, while the reds are made at our Canoe Ridge Estate winery in Eastern Washington. Built on the 1912 estate owned by Seattle lumber baron Frederick Stimson, the winery’s roots date back to the Repeal of Prohibition. To learn more visit https://www.ste-michelle.com/.
