What We Do

Our vision is a thriving Washington wine industry.

We are a network of people who have helped grow the Washington wine industry from the beginning. Using that network and experience, we identify challenges facing the industry, bring together partners, and facilitate funding to craft sustainable solutions.

Washington Wine Collaboration Series

We believe the collaborative relationship between growers and winemakers has become a trademark of our industry. To showcase this relationship, once a year we connect a local grower with a local vintner to develop a one-of-a-kind barrel of Washington State Collaboration Series wine.

Strengthening and Building Partnerships

The Washington Wine Industry Foundation is unique as one of the industry’s few 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. This enables us to build, steward, and distribute funding for the industry in a way that others cannot, thanks to Federal and state grants, sponsorships, and donations.
