You’d be hard-pressed (just like the grapes!) to find a more influential winery than Chateau Ste. Michelle. It’s Washington State’s oldest winery, getting its start when Pommerelle Wine Company and the National Wine Company merged in 1954 to form the American Wine Growers. From there, they created a premium line of vinifera wines in 1967 called “Ste. Michelle Vintners,” under the direction of Andre Tchelistcheff, which is where Ste. Michelle really took off. Their first vines were planted at the now-legendary Cold Creek Vineyard in Eastern Washington in 1972. When a French style chateau was built in Woodinville by Ste. Michelle Vintners in 1976, the winery finally became known as Chateau Ste. Michelle.

The terroir is very important for Chateau Ste. Michelle. Columbia Valley isn’t just important because they have over 3,500 acres under vine there - they love the land, and they even helped to make it recognized as an American Viticulture Area (AVA). Columbia Read more »

  • I recently tried the Chateau Ste. Michelle Columbia Valley dry riesling, 2009, and it was very tart notes of pear and grapefruit. The flavors were clean and crisp. I paired it with my lemon butter aglio e olio (fresh squeezed lemon, butter-in place of olive oil, pressed garlic, peperoncino and spaghetti) but I'm excited to pair it with a white...
