Chateau Ste Michelle

This book demonstrates how the history of Washington Wine is inextricable from the history of Chateau Ste. Michelle.

Chateau Ste  Michelle

"Chateau Ste. Michelle is the oldest winery in Washington state. It was founded as the American Wine Company, a 1954 merger of the National Wine Company (NAWICO), founded in 1934, and the Pomerelle Wine Company. The French-style chateau is located on 87 acres of land with mature trees that once belonged to lumber baron Frederick Stimson, who used it as a hunting retreat and rural working farm called the Hollywood Farm. Over the years, many of Washington's most prominent winemakers have worked for Chateau Ste. Michelle. With annual production of over 2,000,000 cases a year, Chateau Ste. Michelle is the world's leading producer of Riesling wine. The winery owns several estate vineyards in Eastern Washington including the Canoe Ridge vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA, the Cold Creek vineyard and Indian Wells vineyards in the Columbia Valley AVA. This book demonstrates how the history of Washington Wine is inextricable from the history of Chateau Ste. Michelle. Not only was CSM a major contributor to getting Washington wines on the map, they have been a major driver in Washington wines becoming renowned worldwide"--Provided by publisher.
