Washington’s Chateau Ste. Michelle is partnering with Washington restaurants to support the fifth annual “Raise a Glass, Fund a Scholarship” program to benefit viticulture and enology programs at Washington State University and other Northwest universities.
Nearly 200 restaurants in Washington have participated in the Raise A Glass, Fund a Scholarship program, which runs through the end of December 2012.
The list of participating restaurants is available at www.ste-michelle.com.
“We are extremely proud that our local Northwest restaurant community has helped us raise $200,000 over four 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 wine industry to continue to produce world-class, internationally renowned wines.”
Chateau Ste. Michelle will donate $3 per case sold to participating restaurants (up to $50,000).
