Bringing together partners to facilitate funding.
With specific scholarships honoring the trailblazers of years past, our donors build a legacy. Beneficiaries will use those funds to build a future for the industry.
We facilitate scholarships on behalf of Washington’s wine industry for qualifying students pursuing studies in viticulture, enology, and other wine-related studies. Since 2002, over $263,000 has been awarded to over 185 Washington students.
