WASHINGTON WINE AND FOOD SO UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL YOU CAN TASTE IT
27TH ANNUAL AUCTION OF WASHINGTON WINES was a huge success! This weekend, with the help of the generous wine community, we were able to raise $1,800,000 to support uncompentsated care at Seattle Children's Hostpital and fund viticulture and enology research at WSU.
We are grateful to Washington winemakers, our dedicated sponsors and generous guests for coming together to support these importnat casues. Thank you for the support in building healthier and more vital Washington.
We look forward to seeing you next year on August 13 - 15 - join us for one day or all three!
In the meantime, please follow us on Facebook for photos, updates, and highlights from the events and the Washington state wine community.
