What is Angel Share™?
To intensify the subtle flavors of wine, winemakers often store their products in oak barrels. Over time, some of the alcohol seeps through the grain of the oak staves and evaporates. The evaporating alcohol has come to be known as the "Angel Share™" alluding to the belief that guardian angels watch over, and perhaps share the wine as it ages.
Angel Share™ Auction
Annually, the Washington Wine Industry Foundation’s signature fundraiser, the Angel Share™ Auction, raises money in support of industry education, research, and leadership. Because of the generosity of Angel Share™ donors and patrons, nearly $1 million has been raised since 2001!
Save the Date!
The 2015 Angel Share™ Auction will be Thursday, February 12 at Three Rivers Convention Center in Kennewick, during the Washington Association of Wine Grape Growers annual convention. This celebration attracts over 400 industry leaders and is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate your charitable support of the industry and showcase your products and services.
