What is your Chateau and how do you get there? For some, it’s a space. For others, it’s a space in time. Someone's Chateau may be their summer home on the lake where they can forget the world and bask in the sun. Someone else's Chateau may be a good hike in the woods where they can connect with nature in peace. It could be something as simple as enjoying the company of family and friends minus life's usual distractions. Eight bloggers were asked to share what gets them to their Chateau and try some delicious Chateau Ste. Michelle wines along the way. Read on to see what each woman said and be sure to share your own Chateau for a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card. Also, check out the Chateau Ste. Michelle Facebook app to create your own Chateau!

My nightly glass of wine is a wonderful way to reward myself and relax a little, and this week I had the pleasure of enjoying a couple bottles by Chateau Ste. Michelle. It's actually a winery I've purchased many bottles from before, so when this review opportunity came along, I pounced on it. It's a 100% natural fit for me. The wines were wonderful, as usual....more
We thought about what our happy place is, what our "chateau" would be...and, without a doubt, mine would be drinking a glass of wine, listening to the sound of the waves crashing at the ocean and having my friends, my man friend and my daughter by my side....more
This is our happy place. The kids might be fighting in the yard over their tire swing, but hey, at least we are all together. There is nothing better than when my husband and I can finally relax with a glass of win....more
But through all these adventures my heart still holds close my precious children. While I know they might not be with my physically, I have learned that they are always, always with me emotionally....more
That’s why there is nothing I enjoy more than sitting on my patio with friends and enjoying a glass of wine. It’s outside; dirt is to be expected, toys are meant to be strewn, kids are free to roughhouse and yell at each other. I don’t even mind if the dog poops!...more
