Winemaker’s Dinner and Silent Auction

Save the Date – Saturday, May 21, 2022 @ 6 pm

New Location!  Yakima Valley College Conference and Event Center on Yakima Campus

You are invited to join us to celebrate student success and the “Rising Stars” of the Yakima Valley College Vineyard & Winery Technology Program.

The annual Grape to Glass Gala will include a Winemaker’s Dinner paired with Yakima Valley Vintners’ wines, a silent auction, music and dancing. Proceeds will benefit student scholarships for the Vineyard & Winery Technology Program. The Gala is also a way to celebrate the success of graduates from the program who are working in the grape and wine industry. Join us to celebrate their success as we showcase the work they are doing with local employers.

We invite you to celebrate our student’s success in a special event to raise funds to support student scholarships for the Vineyard & Winery Technology Program.  YVC will be hosting a winemakers’ dinner and silent auction at our May 21st, 2022 Grape to Glass Gala on our Yakima Campus in the new conference and event center.

About Yakima Vintners

Yakima Valley Vintners, YVC’s teaching winery, opened a new tasting room on the Yakima Campus in 2021. Our winemaking facilities are located on the Grandview Campus along with the original tasting room. The facility offers students studying in the college’s Vineyard & Winery Technology Program the opportunity for hands-on technical training in the area of viticulture and enology.

I am truly grateful for the generosity of awarding me the vineyard & winery technology scholarship.  You have eased the financial burden on my family and me. Once again thank you I couldn’t have been more excited for such good news.”
