The Washington Advancements in Viticulture and Enology (WAVE) seminars, which are co-sponsored with Washington State University, follow a half- to all-day format to highlight viticulture and enology research. WAVEx is the condensed version, often in a webinar format, with targeted topics and practical application. WAVEx allows Washington Wine and WSU to tailor research programming for specific wine regions. WAVEx has visited the following regions: Prosser, Richland, Walla Walla, Lake Chelan, Columbia Gorge and Woodinville.
