The Walter Clore Wine and Culinary Center is an exciting wine tasting and education destination.

Named for the late Dr. Walter J. Clore, recognized as the "Father of Washington Wine" for his life’s work studying vinifera grapes and their potential in Washington, the center offers visitors a one-of-a-kind tasting experience with a selection of wines that changes each month. Each monthly selection presents the wines of a specific Washington American Viticultural Area, to acquaint visitors with its unique growing characteristics.

Explore the Center

Guests happily lose track of time here. The fascinating wine shop offers old favorites, boutique gems and wines that may not be available elsewhere. There is even a section dedicated to wines made by students from Washington's four viticulture and enology degree programs. Purchases of these wines support these academic programs, the Clore Center, and the student winemakers as they earn their degrees.

Wine and food enthusiasts also appreciate the Clore Center’s exclusive monthly blind tastings –each provides an in-depth look at a different varietal – along with its culinary programs ranging from food and wine pairings to tapas demonstrations and hands-on sushi classes. The Clore Center also hosts many parties, weddings, meetings and events with two venues on the property and flexible space both indoors and out.
