Since its inception in 1982, the Wine Spectator Scholarship Foundation has raised more than $30 million in support of wine and hospitality education programs, scholarships and learning facilities that look to the industry’s next generation. That has been made possible by the generosity of vintners around the world, who donate the wine for Wine Spectator's Wine Experience, which raises funds for the foundation, and the thousands of wine lovers who attend the annual weekend of tastings and seminars. Get a look into some of the foundation’s efforts over the years.
