The Clore Center is pleased to announce our 2018 Legends of Washington Wine Hall of Fame Inductees: Dick & Wendy Shaw
Dick and Wendy Shaw have been selected as the 2018 Legends of Washington Wine Hall of Fame inductees. The Walter Clore Wine and Culinary Center is pleased to honor them with this award during the Legends Gala to be held on Friday, August 10th, 2018. View the Press Release here.
Dick and Wendy's impact and contribution to the Washington wine industry began in 1981. With the support of the local community, encouragement from Dr. Walter Clore and their own certainty in the future of the Washington wine industry, they planted 100 acres on the Wahluke Slope near Mattawa, WA. Over the next three decades they would significantly develop their vineyard operations and establish a reputation as one of the most efficient, reliable, and quality wine grape growers in Washington State.
With over 35 years' experience, the two show no sign of slowing down as they continue to invest in the industry's growth and development. They are true examples of what it means to be a Legend of Washington Wine, and the Clore Center is thrilled to recognize
them in this way.
Nominees of the Hall of Fame are individuals who exemplify legendary status because of contributions and commitment to the Washington wine industry. Nominees must have been Washington residents involved in the wine industry for 25 years.
The Legends Gala is the Clore Center's marquee annual fundraising event. Proceeds from the evening benefit the Clore Center's ongoing programs and events designed to promote Washington wine and agriculture. Tickets and sponsorship options for the Legends Gala on August 10th, 2018 will be available soon.
