SMWE ACCESSIBILITY STATEMENT
At Chateau Ste. Michelle, a thriving community is integral to how we do business, and has been for over 40 years. We make decisions that promote the long-term health of our people, the environment and our businesses. We’re always trying to be better. It’s our responsibility to act in a way that inspires trust and confidence in our company and our products. This backdrop informs our commitment to accessibility in our wineries and online.
Chateau Ste. Michelle is committed to digital accessibility, and to conforming to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, Level AA and complying with the Department of Justice's Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and other applicable regulations.
To accomplish this, we have partnered with eSSENTIAL Accessibility to administer our accessibility program and oversee its governance and ensure we are continually working to improve the user experience of our websites. With the assistance of eSSENTIAL, we have a program in place that continually evaluates and audits our digital products on an ongoing basis in accordance with best practices and is supported by a diverse team of accessibility professionals, including users of assistive technologies. The platform, moreover, goes beyond minimum compliance requirements by making an assistive CX technology application available to customers who have trouble typing, gesturing, moving a mouse, or reading. The application is free to download from our site and incorporates tools such as mouse and keyboard replacements, voice recognition, speech enablement, hands-free/touch-free navigation, and more.
We want to hear from you if you encounter any accessibility problems. Please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
