Chateau Ste. Michelle is partnering with artist Dale Chihuly to commemorate the 20th Vintage Artist Series, which will feature Chihuly’s “Cast Silver Venetian.” “This piece is one-of-a-kind and very special to me. I couldn’t think of a better use than portraying it on this significant wine project,” said Chihuly. The 2012 Vintage Artist Series wine is a blend of 70-percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 26-percent Merlot, 2-percent Cabernet Franc and 2-percent Malbec. “It’s the first wine I blend every year from the best fruit of the vintage. My goal is to capture Old World refinement, while harnessing the power and concentration of Washington fruit,” said Bob Bertheau, Head Winemaker, Chateau Ste. Michelle.
