A VISIONARY WINE
Building on our legacy as Washington state’s founding winery, we are excited to introduce Impetus, a visionary wine showcasing three varieties that are stellar in our growing region, but not traditionally blended together. This unique combination provides a beautiful marriage of structure, fruit and complexity that represents the pinnacle of Washington state grape growing and winemaking.
COMBINING ART & WINEMAKING
Winemakers and artists have drawn inspiration from one another for centuries. For our Artist Series wines, head winemaker Bob Bertheau crafts exceptional Bordeaux-style blends of unique power and character that honor world-class artisans such as Dale Chihuly, Alden Mason and Andre Petterson.
BEST OF VINTAGE WINES
Our Ethos tier is comprised of limited production wines of unique style and power. Head winemaker Bob Bertheau integrates bold Washington fruit with European-style complexity and structure to craft our pinnacle, “Best of the Vintage” wines. Ethos, meaning “character” in Greek, is crafted in the winemaker’s vision and represents the distinctive spirit of our winery.
SPECIAL SITES COLLECTION
DISTINCTIVE SINGLE-SITE WINES
This collection of wines is the ultimate expresson of the acclaimed vineyards and small AVAs in Washington state: Cold Creek Vineyard, Canoe Ridge Estate, and now Red Mountain AVA. Distinctive single-site wines that celebrate a unique sense of place.
SINGLE SITE, TERROIR DRIVEN WINES
Our Single Vineyard wines are purposely crafted to emphasize the unique character of the estate vineyards whose names they carry: Cold Creek, Horse Heaven and the vineyard at Canoe Ridge Estate. Each varietal highlights the site-specific character of the fruit, showcasing the ultimate “Sense of Place.”
LUSCIOUS NEW WORLD STYLE
Our Indian Wells grapes are sourced from their namesake Indian Wells Vineyard, along with a variety of other warm-climate Washington vineyards that range from the Wahluke Slope to Cold Creek Vineyard. Our wines are created in the luscious, opulent New World style, ensuring their distinctively rich, round and full-bodied flavor profile.
BALANCED OLD WORLD STYLE
We source grapes from all over Washington’s Columbia Valley to produce consistent Washington style wines of unparalleled quality, unique complexity and exceptional fruit intensity. Whether you’re planning your next dinner party or trying Chateau Ste. Michelle for the first time, our Columbia Valley wines are a great place to start.
We source grapes from over 30 family farms and our estate vineyards in Washington to produce these quality wines. Infused with fresh fruit and botanicals to intensify the unique character of the varietals, these wines are great for all occasions and an excellent choice for those who are new to drinking wine.
WHERE OLD MEETS NEW
Eroica wines are a testament to our commitment of combining Old World philosophy and technique with New World attitude. It is a winemaking collaboration between Chateau Ste. Michelle and famed Mosel winemaker Ernst Loosen, from the vineyard to the bottle. The widely acclaimed and uniquely ageable Eroica Riesling sets the bar for Chateau Ste. Michelle’s Riesling Leadership.
EXCLUSIVE, SMALL LOT WINES
There’s much to be said about our small lot, limited release wines. These innovative wines are crafted each year by our winemaking team exclusively for our Vintage Reserve Club members and made available online and at our Tasting Room. Not to be missed, these wines showcase our passion for wine and our appreciation of our club members.
THIS IS WINE WORTH BELIEVING IN. THIS IS TENET.
At Tenet Wines, we are convinced that Washington state is an exceptional terroir for Syrah and its Rhône brethren. A project between the iconic Washington state winery Chateau Ste. Michelle and the acclaimed Rhône winemaker Michel Gassier, with the assistance of Southern Rhône’s famous enology consultant, Philippe Cambie, “Tenet Wines” establishes a parallel between Syrah’s cradle and most renowned region, the Rhône Valley, and its tremendous potential on Washington's basaltic slopes.
DOMAINE STE. MICHELLE
CELEBRATE IN STYLE WITH DOMAINE STE. MICHELLE.
For over 40 years, Domaine Ste. Michelle has defined American sparkling wine with its distinctive Washington state style. Crafted in the traditional, Méthode Champenoise, each variety has delicate aromas and classic crisp flavors that are nicely balanced by the fruit’s natural acidity. Like France’s renowned northerly Champagne district, the distinct terroir of our Columbia Valley vineyards slowly ripens grapes to an ideal balance of fruit character and crisp acidity – perfect conditions to create our balanced sparkling wines.
