“The Best of 425 Magazine 2014 - Best Winery”

Chateau Ste. Michelle

"With so many Woodinville wineries, Eastsiders are spoiled when it comes to their reds and whites. But, for obvious reasons, one Woodinville winery stands out from the rest. From its breathtaking chateau to its award-winning wines, Chateau Ste. Michelle boasts more than just good wine. Guests of the chateau will enjoy touring the grounds during a tasting, or attending for one of their popular summer concerts. It’s simply a gem."
