Chateau Ste. Michelle Earns LIVE Sustainability Certification for its Woodinville Winery

Woodinville, Wash. - Washington’s founding winery recently earned LIVE sustainability for its popular Woodinville, Washington winery, which is visited by more than 300,000 guests a year. The winery’s Canoe Ridge Estate red winery in Eastern Washington, as well as its Canoe Ridge Estate and Cold Creek vineyards are also LIVE and Salmon Safe Certified. LIVE is a rigorous third party certification program of environmentally and socially responsible winegrowing in the Pacific Northwest.

“We are very proud that both our Chateau Ste. Michelle winery facilities and estate vineyards are now LIVE certified,” explains Jessica Myer, Ste. Michelle Wine Estate Environmental Specialist. “LIVE certification looks as the whole winemaking process, from grape sourcing to how the wines are bottled and shipped out the door. We believe that environmental stewardship and responsible practices in our vineyards and winemaking facilities not only help us craft the best quality wines possible, but it’s also the right thing to do for our company and our community.”
