About Col Solare
Col Solare is jointly owned by Ste. Michelle Wine Estates in Woodinville, Wash., and the Antinori family of Italy. Ste. Michelle is Washington’s oldest winery, with roots going back to 1934, just after Prohibition. Meanwhile, the Antinoris began making wine in the 1380s.
The two wine companies conceived of Col Solare (Italian for “Shining Hill”) and launched the winery with the 1995 vintage, all from Washington grapes. They built the winery near the top of Red Mountain in 2007, and it has been one of the crown jewels of the Washington wine industry since.
Col Solare normally is open only by private appointment, and a tasting is $25 per person. A formal wine pairing session costs $55 per person. Meanwhile, tours and barrel tasting sessions with winemaker Marcus Notaro are not available to the public.
