Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery
Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery Review
One of the state's oldest wineries lies 15 miles northeast of Seattle. Once part of the estate of lumber baron Fred Stimson, these 107 acres include the original trout ponds, a carriage house, a caretaker's cottage, formal gardens, and the 1912 family manor house (which is on the National Register of Historic Places). Complimentary wine tastings and cellar tours run throughout the day. Specialty tours and tastings (vintage reserve tastings and theme tastings) are $10–$20. You're also invited to picnic and explore the grounds on your own; the wine shop sells delicatessen items. In summer Chateau Ste. Michelle hosts nationally known performers and arts events in its amphitheater.
