CHATEAU STE MICHELLE | WEST EDGE, CHELSEA

Chateau Ste Michelle celebrated its 50th anniversary at West Edge in Chelsea Market, with a look back at their winemaking journey, as well as what's to come. Ste Michelle Winery changed the landscape of wine in Washington State 50 years ago, by releasing an old world-style wine that consumers fell in love with. Now five decades later, the brand is thriving and has expanded to almost 1,000 wineries, across 14 different wine regions.

West Edge was transformed into a wine lover's paradise by our friends at Boschi Events. The space was divided into sections that promoted tastings and encouraged conversation with the winemakers. 11th Street Scenic provided the set and the event design was punctuated by graphics provided by Enhance a Colour and AV by Royal Oak. Creative Edge Parties catered the event and showcased an oyster bar with a specialty wine pairing. For only being five decades in, Chateau Ste Michelle has accomplished so much. We are excited to see what else is on its horizon.
