For the eighth straight year and 14th time since 1988, Washington’s Chateau Ste. Michelle has been named to the annual Winery of the Year list compiled by Wine & Spirits magazine, one of the industry’s most prestigious publications.
Washington’s founding winery Chateau Ste Michelle was named “Wine Brand of the Year” by Market Watch at the publication’s “Leaders Choice Awards” ceremony Sept. 17th in New York. A group of “Leaders,” more than 200 top store owners whose combined annual revenues exceed $10 billion, vote for “the established and new brands in spirits, wine and beer.” In its October issue, the trade magazine cited the winery’s impressive growth over the last decade as the major factor for the winery’s recognition.
Two decades ago many U.S. grape growers were ripping out Riesling vines to plant more Chardonnay as Riesling was falling out of favor in the marketplace. Today consumers have rediscovered Riesling making it the fastest growing white wine varietal for the third straight year.
