Relax in a wine-tasting igloo at Washington’s oldest winery

Chateau Ste. Michelle has a unique new tasting destination. #k5evening

WOODINVILLE, Wash. – There’s a new place to taste wine at Château Ste. Michelle and it’s not what you would expect.

“We are in our little village of igloos! They’re just cozy personal igloos where you can still be with your friends, outside and enjoy wine,” explained Lauren King, Senior Director of Wine Education.

Evening Angela Poe-Russell wanted to know, “What does it look like in there?”

“Kind of like your own little snow globe, like a winter wonderland. You can have a fun and enjoyable experience with your friends,” King replied.

Angela invited Kim Holcomb to try one with her.

“I can’t think of anyone I’d rather taste wine with in an igloo!”

The igloos can accommodate up to five friends, and for a two-hour tasting, you can sit down with your choice of Château Ste. Michelle, accompanied by a plate of gourmet charcuterie designed to accompany your wine. It’s a great way to practice the five S’s of wine tasting – see, swirl, smell, sip, savor. Twinkling lights, Bluetooth speakers and Chateau Ste. Michelle’s resident ducks add to the experience.

We don’t know if you can try the bubbly in these bubbles, it’s worth asking. But after years of quarantine bubbles, drinking inside a plastic bubble that protects you from the rain is a nice change of pace and a fun way to enjoy good wine — and good friends.

Chateau Ste. Michelle’s Igloos are $175 for two hours (less if you’re a wine club member) and can hold five people. They are available from Wednesday to Sunday, Reservations are suggested, but they will accommodate walk-in spaces when available.
