Student-made wines released March 28


Richland, Wash. – Anthony’s Restaurants will host the WSU Blended Learning Spring Release Party at Budd’s Broiler at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 28. The public is invited to attend.

Event registration is $125 and includes a wine tasting reception, followed by a four-course dinner prepared by Anthony’s culinary team and expertly paired with wines from some of Washington’s most esteemed wineries. Tickets are available online.

During the tasting reception, guests will be treated to the exclusive, first samples of new WSU Blended Learning student-made wines poured by WSU Viticulture & Enology (V&E) students.

Blended Learning is a V&E class offered to students each semester.  This student winemaking project supports hands-on learning by pairing students with local growers and winemakers who collaborate on all aspects of the winemaking process.

This is the third year in a row that Anthony’s has hosted a fundraising event where 100 percent of funds raised support the WSU V&E Program. To date, Anthony’s has helped raise close to $50,000! Their continued support provides funds for lab modifications and new equipment at the Ste. Michelle Wine Estates WSU Wine Science Center in Richland, Wash.
