A new organization called Prosser Wine Network was formed in Washington State last spring to promote Prosser wines. The new group, with more than 30 initial winery and associate members, is working to create awareness of wines from Prosser by providing networking events, advocating on behalf of members, coordinating media outreach, and promoting community events.

Prosser is known as the birthplace of Washington wines and is home to the new Walter Clore Wine and Culinary Center. With more than 800 bonded wineries in the state, attracting visitors to Prosser requires not only providing inviting tasting rooms and quality wines but offering ongoing education about the wine business, according to a news release issued by the network.
