Top American Winery Ranking Marks Chateau Ste. Michelle's Third Prestigious Honor this Fall
Drinks International magazine recently announced the "World's Most Admired Wine Brands," a comprehensive industry poll of the world's best regarded wine, and Washington's Chateau Ste. Michelle earned the #13 spot, the highest ranking for an American winery. This honor comes on the heels of Chateau Ste. Michelle winning "Washington's Most Respected Brand" in the Puget Sound Business Journal's "Battle of the Brands" poll in August, in which the winery beat out distinguished Washington organizations like Starbucks, Microsoft, Nordstrom and REI in an online poll. In addition, in October Chateau Ste. Michelle was named as one of Wine & Spirits magazine's "Wineries of the Year" for the 17th time, more than any other American winery.
