We bring together partners and facilitate funding to craft sustainable solutions to our industry’s challenges.

Washington State Wine Collaboration Series
We believe the collaborative relationship between grower and winemaker has become a trademark of our industry that deserves to be acknowledged. The Collaboration Series is a nod to the ground-breakers and pioneers of the past and the future of Washington Wine who burnish and expand our reputation through the creation of a new, one-of-a-kind wine annually.
Building the future while honoring the past.
With specific scholarships honoring the trailblazers of years past, our donors build a legacy. Our scholarship recipients use those funds to build their future in the industry. Since 2002, the Foundation has awarded 185 scholarships totaling $263,000 to Washington students pursuing certificates or degrees in viticulture, enology, and other wine-related studies.
