Our Work for the Industry Benefits Every Winery in Washington

The Washington Wine Institute (WWI) is THE leading advocate for Washington wineries. For two decades, we have united the dynamic and diverse wineries across this state to ensure the collective strength of our industry's voice is heard in Olympia.

Every legislative session, we work side by side with state lawmakers to shape legislative and regulatory policy decisions that impact the Washington wine industry. We strive to protect the industry's needs, while promoting its tremendous growth and our work has delivered invaluable results for Washington wineries throughout the years.

As Washington wine laws are changing rapidly, it's now more important than ever that wineries stand united in Olympia! Learn more about our membership benefits and join the hundreds of wineries that have chosen to have their voices heard!
