Washington Advancements in Viticulture and Enology (WAVE) has become the signature research event for Washington's wine industry. Co-sponsored by the Wine Commission and Washington State University, the annual research seminars are designed to bring viticulture and enology research results into the hands of users and raise awareness of the value of research amongst grape growers and winemakers.
WAVE, follows an all-day format to highlight both viticulture and enology research. WAVEx is a condensed version, but with more practical application. WAVEx allows the Wine Commission and WSU to tailor research programming for specific wine regions. WAVEx in 2018 visited Lake Chelan, Richland and Woodinville.
