A $7 million renovation of the Chateau Ste. Michelle’s visitor center in Woodinville is the crowning glory of the winery’s 50th anniversary. The 22,731-square-foot site is double the size of the previous tasting room, and features four private tasting salons, a modern 80-seat theater, and a restaurant-style kitchen. In the interactive blending room, guests can learn the nuances of wine by creating their own red wine blend.

“The opening of the new visitor center represents the next chapter in Chateau Ste. Michelle’s growth and will dramatically enhance our ability to offer world-class wine experiences for decades to come,” said Ted Baseler, president and CEO of Ste. Michelle Wine Estates. “The center offers new wine experiences for visitors, whether they want to enjoy a flight in our private tasting salons, take a guided tour of the winery, blend their own bottle of wine or attend special programs in our theater.”
