Riesling Leadership

since 1972

Ste. Michelle catapulted in to the national spotlight when the 1972 Johannisberg Riesling won the now-famous Riesling blind tasting sponsored by The Los Angeles Times in 1974. Its universal acclaim and exceptional taste made Chateau Ste. Michelle the leading Riesling producer in North America.

Riesling Leadership

Tradition meets

Eroica is truly groundbreaking. It was the first American Riesling to offer aged Rieslings for the U.S. marketplace and its first 5 vintages were on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list. While crafting Riesling to age is tradition in growing regions throughout Germany, France and Austria, Chateau Ste. Michelle pioneered this practice in the U.S.


Riesling Leadership

A Variety of Styles

Our award-winning Riesling portfolio ranges from the number one selling American Riesling, our Columbia Valley Riesling, to the ultra-premium Eroica Riesling, made in partnership with Ernst Loosen. Ernst Loosen is the owner of the Dr. Loosen Estate, which has a 200-year tradition of producing Riesling in Germany's Mosel region.
