The winery may be the oldest in the state, but their ideas on blending and experimenting are nothing if not innovative. Chateau Ste. Michelle is well-known throughout the world as one of the Pacific Northwest's finest wineries, with their Rieslings (ranging from sweet to surprisingly dry) and Chardonnays garnering particular fame.
A tour of the grounds and winery and a tasting of the best of Ste. Michelle are just a few of the activities the chateau has to offer. Their massive outdoor summer concert series boasts 17 concerts featuring everything from rock to jazz from June through September. For foodies, Executive Chef Janet Hedstrom is reason enough to try one of the chateau's Chef Dinners. And if you're a local, join the wine club of 10,000+ members; membership is free, with two new bottles a month and access to special events being a few of the perks.
