Currently under construction and designed to complement its natural surroundings, the 15,000 square foot Clore Center will offer several indoor and outdoor venues including a tasting room, demonstration kitchen, agriculture and viticulture exhibits, classrooms, conference rooms, office space, retail shop, instructional vineyards, interpretive and production gardens. Building completion is scheduled for October.

The Vineyard Pavilion, a satellite building opened in June 2011 and has become a popular site to hold weddings, parties and reunions. The 2,400 square foot building features indoor and outdoor assembly areas, a catering kitchen, office space and rest rooms.

“The completion of this facility marks a critical milestone to increase consumer education through classroom opportunities and exhibit-display areas,” commented Clore Board President, Dr. Bob Stevens. Workforce training sessions, state-wide conferences and grower meetings are just a few of the anticipated wine and agriculture industry uses for the building. “The Center’s flexible spaces can accommodate small groups for a private setting, 300 people for a seated dinner, or as large as 400 for a classroom-conference style of presentation and will help fill the gap for facility needs in Washington’s wine country”, stated Abbey Cameron, Event Coordinator for the Center.

The Clore Center site is located in Prosser, Washington on 24 acres overlooking the Yakima River. The site also offers views of the Horse Heaven Hills and Rattlesnake Ridge. Prosser is home to the largest irrigated agricultural research center in the United States (WSU-IAREC) where Dr. Clore performed his research. The Clore Center site is easily accessible from I-82, Exit 82.
