The Walter J. Clore Scholarship was established in 1997 by the Washington Winegrowers Association in honor of Dr. Clore's grape research and lifetime achievements in the field of viticulture and enology. Working with growers, Dr. Clore and his colleagues published information on grape varieties, diseases, insects, mineral nutrition, irrigation, cover crops, weed control and climatological effects, including winter injury. He tested various trellis designs, which eventually led to the widespread adoption of mechanical harvesting. More than any other individual, Dr. Clore has had a profound and lasting impact on the Washington wine industry. The number of awards is determined annually and scholarships start at $1,000.
