Ste. Michelle Wine Estates WSU Wine Science Center

Washington State University
Richland, WA

Completed utilizing a design-build delivery method, this one-of-a-kind $23 million research and teaching facility is located at Washington State University Tri-Cities in Richland.

The facility includes a research and teaching winery, state-of-the-art research laboratories, classrooms, conference rooms and a regional and international wine library. A dramatic central lobby provides views of the research winery floor and outdoors toward the Columbia River and the WSU Tri-Cities campus. The glass lobby opens to exterior landscaped plazas on each side of the building.

The research and teaching conducted in the center is specific to the challenges and opportunities faced by grape growers and winemakers in the Pacific Northwest. Washington’s grape and wine industry aims to triple its annual economic impact from $8.6 billion to $25.8 billion by 2020.
