Vital Wines Industry Grant


The celebratory Gala week will kick off with an online auction!

The Washington wine community gives generously to ensure there is something for everyone, from the wine curious to the experienced oenophile. The auction will feature unique wine packages, wine-themed items, and winery-hosted tours and experiences.

Commemorate the moment!

Acclaimed winemaker and 2022 Honorary Vintner, John R. Bookwalter, has provided a red blend from the Columbia Valley for the 35th anniversary Commemorative Magnum. Contrary to its name, “Conflict” represents the beautiful dance that happens when Merlot (70%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (25%) are blended with a splash of Petit Verdot (5%).

There is nothing more festive than a large-format bottle, and whether this is your first AWW Commemorative Magnum, or you are adding to your multi-year vertical collection, we invite you to support and enjoy!
