The scholarship fund depends on income generated during our fundraising events each year. Since 2007 the efforts of generous donors and bidders and the support of Eastern Winery Exposition and Vineyard and Winery Management have provided nearly $113,000 toward this program.  The impact past recipients have had on the wine industry, nationwide is priceless.

The association is very grateful for the generous contributions for our fundraising events.
