Chateau Ste Michelle Winery - Woodinville, WA

Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery was built on the estate owned by Seattle lumber baron Frederick Stimson in 1912. Through the years, the winery has produced some of the best wines in the country by combining old world winemaking traditions and new world techniques. In addition to its vineyard, Chateau Ste. Michelle boasts an amphitheater, a lovely, intimate venue overlooking the gorgeous wine estate. It has been hosting live performances since 1984, and its Summer Concert Series has featured artists in rock, blues, jazz, and contemporary music such as James Taylor, Diana Krall, John Legend, and Stevie Wonder.

The outdoor venue is 18 miles from Seattle and accessible via bus, cab, or private car. Because it has limited on-site paid parking, free off-site parking is available about a half mile north of winery, and complimentary shuttles to the venue are provided. All the concerts are held outdoors and most take place rain or shine. Umbrellas are permitted during inclement weather only.

Guests may enter the venue approximately two hours before the concert, and a low beach chair, picnic food, and personal cameras are permitted. Bringing in alcohol is strictly prohibited because alcoholic beverages consumed on the winery grounds must be purchased at the winery, according to state law.
