WSU Tri-Cities wine researcher searching for sensory panelists - 05/14/24

RICHLAND, Wash. – A graduate student with the Washington State University Viticulture and Enology program on the WSU Tri-Cities campus is looking for volunteers to participate in a red wine sensory panel. Selected panelists will be trained to identify specific aromas and tastes in wines and are asked to score the wines based on the results.  

The panel will take place over six weeks from May 29 to July 15, with four group sessions and six individual tasting sessions. The group sessions will last between 60 and 90 minutes, and the individual sessions will last 30 minutes each. Snacks and refreshments will be available, and participants will receive a $50 gift card for completing all sessions. Tasting sessions will be held at the Ste. Michelle Wine Estates WSU Wine Science Center in Richland. The timing of the sessions will be up to volunteer discretion.

Any person over the age of 21 may participate. For more information, contact Danni at or (941) 915-1367.
