SEATTLE (PRWEB)January 23, 2019
The Auction of Washington Wines (AWW) today announced a $15,000 grant to Walla Walla Community College’s (WWCC) Institute for Enology and Viticulture. WWCC is focused on promoting the economic development of Washington state’s wine industry by providing education and training. The grant will support WWCC’s “Human Capital” fund, allowing students to earn an income while they gain real world experience that is credited toward obtaining their degrees.
“The camaraderie within the Washington wine industry is fantastic,” said Timothy Donahue, Director of Winemaking for the Enology and Viticulture at WWCC. “The conviviality is on full display with this industry grant, as the Auction of Washington Wines actively invests in the next generation of vintners and viticulturists.”
