Walter Clore Wine and
Culinary Center

The Walter Clore Wine and Culinary Center is a key Port of Benton agribusiness project.

The Clore Center brings together industry and consumers to discover the culture, history and industry of Washington wine.

The Port owns the grounds and facilities in Prosser that house the Clore Center, which is operated by the Walter Clore Wine and Culinary Center nonprofit foundation. The location is unique because Prosser is home to the largest irrigated agricultural research center in the United States (WSU Prosser IAREC) and where Dr. Clore, known as the “Father of Washington Wine,” began his research.
