Washington State’s Founding Winery
Fifty years ago, a tiny winery called Ste. Michelle Vineyards introduced its first vintage of European-style premium wine. It was the release that inspired today’s thriving Washington wine industry—now home to nearly 1,000 wineries and 14 AVAs.
Let’s raise a glass to the first five decades of our story. But only as a motivation to produce even more remarkable Chateau Ste. Michelle wine experiences in the next half-century.
Cheers. The best is yet to come.
WHO WAS SEGIS PROSPECT?
Born in April 1913, Segis Pietertje Prospect was a member of the Holstein foundation herd of Carnation Farm who were selected and bred for superior milk production capabilities. As with all Carnation Farm animals, “Prospect” was treated with the utmost respect and kindness. She shattered milk production records, gaining wide spread fame for both herself and Carnation Farm. Prospect became an iconic historical figure who embodied the farm’s values of innovation and compassion. She was used widely in advertising campaigns for the farm and became the model for Carnation’s contented cows. Her legacy and image were immortalized in 1928 at the unveiling of her statue at the entrance to Carnation Farms which still stands today.
