Chateau Ste. Michelle partners with artists for 1993 vintage
Each artist series vintage to feature artists' work on label
To commemorate the 20th vintage, Chateau Ste. Michelle partnered with Dale Chihuly, the first artist to present artwork on the Artist Series label for the 1993 vintage. The Artist Series red blend is a collector’s wine that represents the highest quality and pedigree from Chateau Ste. Michelle, the company says. Each Artist Series vintage will feature the work of renowned artists on the label, from blown glass to bronze sculptures to paint on canvas. “I’m honored to have my artwork on the 20th vintage Artist Series label,” Chihuly said in a statement. “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.” For the 20th vintage label, Chihuly selected his Cast Silver Venetian. This sculpture was created by Chihuly, and then cast in sterling silver at the Walla Walla Foundry in Washington State. The 2012 Artist Series featuring Chihuly is available nationally with a suggested retail price of $65.
