WINE COUNTRY CASUAL.
Sun dress or summer pants for gals. Cargo shorts and button up for guys. Comfort is key as you will be walking the expansive grounds and lawn of Chateau Ste. Michelle. There will be plenty of shade, but if you look great in a big hat, this is the perfect venue. And of course always be prepared for the weather – after all, it is Seattle!
