Washington Wine Auction Next Month

I’m finally catching up on my email and noticed that January 24 is the date set for the eighth annual Washington wine auction and gala, called A Celebration of Washington Wines.

Chateau Ste. Michelle will host the black-tie event, which benefits the Viticulture and Enology program at Washington State University. According to the Tri-City Herald, money from the last two events helped create an endowment for a chair of the WSU program: “Thomas Henick-Kling, an internationally known enologist, will start the position in February and will be based at WSU Tri-Cities in Richland.”

In addition to a gourmet dinner and a variety of wines, the gala includes a reception and auction for items such as etched magnums, library wines and much more.

For more information – and it’s a great way to support the state’s wine industry — visit the website, A Celebration of Washington Wines.
