John Sarich, Culinary Director - In loving memory 1947 - 2014.

On October 5th, 2014 we lost a beloved and legendary member of the Chateau Ste. Michelle family, our Culinary Director John Sarich. John spent the last three decades inspiring and educating people around the world with his passion for food and wine through his TV shows, cookbooks, and Chateau Ste. Michelle culinary events.
