CWES is a 32-year-old, non-profit organization that holds a monthly program aimed at wine education and appreciation.

Our tasting seminars begin with Registration at 7:00 pm, Welcome Wine at 7:15 pm, and Program start at 7:30 pm on the second Wednesday of each month (except August) and held at the beautifully restored

Red Cross Building (E B Hamilton Hall)
at the
Fort Vancouver Historic Reserve
Vancouver WA

Monthly seminars of the society include:

  • knowledgeable speakers about wine
  • tastings of selected wines
  • culinary food pairings
  • wine raffle at each meeting
  • friendly people and good conversation


  • monthly newsletter
  • annual picnic
  • occasional special events

We are also pleased to work with the Master Chefs and students of the Northwest Culinary Arts Institute. They provide delectable food pairings designed specifically for the wines selected for each monthly program.
