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.
