Seattle’s Best Outdoor Wedding and Event Venue Has a New Name
With its Old World ambience, rustic, romantic decor, and lush grounds dotted with gardens, a gazebo and ponds, the Delille Cellars Chateau in Woodinville has long been a popular venue for weddings and other special gatherings, garnering Best Outdoor Venue awards year after year in Seattle Bride magazine.
In order to maintain the intimate nature of the chateau while adding amenities to respond to the increasing demand for mid-week events, Greg Lill, President Emeritus and co-owner of the Delille Cellars winery, and his wife and business partner, Stacy Lill, recently announced that effective spring of 2019, the DeLille Cellars Chateau will be renamed Chateau Lill, and the winery, which had been headquartered there, will move off site to the former Redhook Brewery in early 2019 and operate under separate management. “We wanted to address the demand for groups, meetings and events that want to retreat or celebrate in a tranquil setting,” says Stacy. The Chateau can accommodate up to 120 guests indoors and 200 outdoors.
While Greg Lill is staying on as co-owner of Delille Cellars, he and Stacy will also continue to produce their own small-release, Old World-style wines under the Cashmere label, which they launched in 2004. In addition, they plan to add a new line of lower-priced wines for weddings and events, which will be available exclusively at Chateau Lill.
More than a quarter century ago, The Lill family opened the doors of their popular space and winery, helping to establish the boutique winery phenomenon in Woodinville. They have garnered a loyal following for their Bordeaux-style wines, which will continue to be produced at the new facility, under new management.
