Foundation Events

We exist to help Washington’s grape and wine industry thrive.

We work toward making that vision a reality by bringing together partners and facilitating funding to craft sustainable solutions to our industry’s toughest challenges.

But we can’t do it without your support.

Join us at one of our fundraising events and you’ll keep the Foundation hard at work meeting industry needs while mingling with other like-minded industry visionaries.

Partying for the future of our thriving industry.

On March 4, 2020 nearly 450 wine industry members and friends will come together at the Toyota Center in Kennewick to raise a glass (and some money) for the future of Washington wine at the Foundation’s biggest fundraiser of the year — our annual Party + Auction. Attendees will enjoy live music, a custom chef-designed dinner, wine from premier Washington wineries, the barrel of gold, an opportunity to secure their case of the second Collaboration Series exclusive wine, and silent and live auctions.Over $237,000 was raised at the 2019 Party + Auction, supporting the Foundation in crafting solutions to our industry’s greatest challenges. We are looking forward to another wonderful year!

Creating Legacy’s of Washington Wine.

The Washington Wine Industry Foundation is pleased to announce the third offering of the Washington State Wine Collaboration Series.

The Washington State Wine Collaboration Series is a nod to the groundbreakers and pioneers of the past and the future of Washington Wine who burnish and expand our reputation. The Washington Wine Industry Foundation believes the collaborative relationship between grower and winemaker has become a trademark of our industry that deserves to be acknowledged.

For the third year, this legacy auction lot will be offered to showcase partnerships that achieve this great promise; where a collaboration of the grower and the vintner have left a mark on the history of our state and represent the finest qualities of our industry. The result is 20 unique cases offered from a barrel not available anywhere else. Each case will be sold separately.

Proceeds will support the Washington Wine Industry Foundation’s efforts to secure grants that meet industry needs and provide scholarships to help train our future workforce through.

This is a legacy that we hope continues for many years. Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind wine.
