Washington State University has announced a partnership to provide wine and culinary education at the Walter Clore Center in Prosser, which is run in part by the Port of Benton. WSU’s Maegan Murray, says this is a natural partnership.
“We are the educational side of things so we’ll be offering sensory classes and wine business classes for students and members of the public. This was an exciting opportunity for partnership to get a crucial aspect of our wine business and wine education center back up and running.”
Murray, added the Clore Center, which first opened in 2014, was established as a way to bring the wine industry to members of the public as well as provide education regarding the wine industry as well as other Ag programs.
“So it’s been an ideal partnership, we can lend our expertise in the educational side of things and then they bring that history as part of their historical archives that they run there.”
The 15,000 square facility is named after Walter Clore, dubbed by many as the “Father of Washington wine”
