Sharing America's Best-Kept Secret With the World

An Introduction To The Northwest Wine Coalition

The Northwest Wine Coalition represents more than 1,200 wineries, but our mission is singular: to introduce quality wineries from Washington and Oregon to the rest of the world.

Founded in 1990 as a nonprofit organization, the Northwest Wine Coalition was created to give this unique winemaking region a stronger, more unified presence in the international wine market. By providing market development and promotion in a growing number of countries around the world, the Coalition is helping the region enjoy increased exports and the worldwide recognition it deserves.
