The Yakima Enological Society (YES) was established in 1976. We are a 501 c (3) non-profit that since 2003, we have been awarding grants to various schools that teach and offer training for careers in the wine industry. We have awarded over $134,000 to the Enology and Viticulture programs at the Yakima Valley College in Grandview, Washington State University in the Tri-Cities, Walla Walla Community College, and Umpqua Community College in Roseburg. Our purpose is to “foster interest in and appreciation of viticulture, enology, and proper use of wine.
Our meetings are generally held on the second Wednesday of the month, however, we do offer tastings throughout the year on different days of the week. To find out more about our upcoming events, please download our current newsletter. Information and registration forms are found in each newsletter. We invite you to become a member of the Yakima Enological Society.
We are a non-profit 501(c) 3 private foundation. When you donate to Y.E.S you are donating to our scholarship fund, our wine community!
