Conservation Efforts

For more information


At the Chateau, we appreciate where we're going as much as where we've been. Because of this, we've made sustainability a huge priority. It fills us with pride to know that we've been acknowledged as an industry leader.

Our conservation efforts include the reduction of energy consumption, water conservation and solid waste reduction and management. We've implemented a wide range of winery recycling programs for materials such as glass, paper, cardboard, pallets, stretch wrap, cell phones, batteries and fluorescent bulbs.

For our efforts, we've also become a Washington State certified EnviroStar business. And, since the 2009 vintage, both Cold Creek and Canoe Ridge Estate vineyards received LIVE and Salmon Safe certification.

These might sound like fancy certifications, but in reality, what they acknowledge is really quite simple.


LIVE (Low Input Viticulture and Enology) is a non-profit organization which promotes the use of sustainable, environmentally safe, economically feasible and socially acceptable control methods. For more information on LIVE visit

The Salmon-Safe label on a bottle of wine means the grapes used in that wine were grown using healthy practices that keep Pacific Northwest rivers clean enough for native salmon to spawn and thrive. For more information on Salmon Safe visit
