Wine Education: Our Partnership with Washington State University
The Valdemar Family is committed to supporting viticulture and enology research and educational goals in the State of Washington. We have signed an agreement with Washington State University Tri-Cities to explore educational opportunities for international collaboration in the field of wine science. This will provide extensive learning opportunities for students including internships, research and hands-on experiences that provide an in-depth look at the wine industry here and in Spain. Additionally, Valdemar Estates team participates in Auction of Washington Wines charitable events, the proceeds of which support Washington State University Viticulture & Enology research and education programs specific to our wine region to ensure that the Northwest remains competitive in the wine market. Valdemar Estates also supports Les Dames d'Escoffier, an organization that creates scholarships for women in the Organic and Sustainable Agriculture program at Washington State University.
Land Conservation: The Blue Mountain Land Trust
The Blue Mountain Land Trust collaborates with communities and landowners to conserve the scenic, natural, and working lands that characterize the Blue Mountain region. The organization works to connect community with the land through its Learning On The Land program, educating our residents on the importance of the preservation of our agricultural heritage.
