Chateau Ste. Michelle Partners with Restaurants to Support Future Grape Growers and Winemakers of the Pacific Northwest
“Raise A Glass, Fund A Scholarship” Program Runs Through December.
Washington's founding winery Chateau Ste. Michelle is partnering with Oregon and Washington restaurants to support the sixth annual "Raise a Glass, Fund a Scholarship" program to benefit Viticulture and Enology programs at Washington State University, Oregon State University and other Northwest universities. More than 200 restaurants will participate in the "Raise A Glass, Fund a Scholarship" program which runs now through the end of December 2013.
"We are extremely proud that our local Northwest restaurant community has helped us raise $250,000 over six years to support the future growers and winemakers of the Pacific Northwest," says Ste. Michelle Wine Estates President Ted Baseler. “These local Viticulture and Enology programs are critical for the Washington and Oregon wine industry to continue to produce world-class wines for decades to come."
