An exclusive trade tasting and live auction of one-of-a-kind, limited production futures from Washington State’s most noted winemakers. A rare opportunity to acquire distinctive, exceptional lots not offered elsewhere.
The Private Barrel Auction builds acclaim for Washington State wine and creates awareness about the region while offering top caliber buyers intimate access to winemakers and extraordinary wines not available anywhere else. These one-of-a-kind wine futures represent the range, style and incredible quality of Washington state.
WSU’s growing research program is supported by internationally recognized faculty and state-of-the-art research facilities. They are committed to helping growers cultivate healthy plants and winemakers craft wines that express the unique characteristics of Washington’s wine-growing regions.
Washington State is one of the world's most dynamic wine regions, rooted in a semi-desert climate with extended sunlight, a shorter growing season and superior terroir. Winemakers take a hand-on approach at crafting one-of-a-kind wines available for bid at the Private Barrel Auction. This year, our largest yet, features 31 auction lots from Washington state's top wineries.
