In 2000, Ken and Diane Wilson held a casual barbecue at Wilson Winery with the belief that children of Sonoma County vineyard workers should not be limited by financial hardships in their pursuit of higher education opportunities; thus began the Children of the Vineyard Workers Scholarship fundraiser (CVWSF). In 2002, the Wilson Family collaborated with the Sonoma County Farm Bureau given their deeprooted values in the agriculture industry and education. Each year, Wilson Artisan Wineries is honored to provide numerous scholarships benefitting youth across Sonoma County and has distributed more than $500,000 in scholarships since inception.

Thank you for your support!


The generosity of our community has helped with contribution to over 200 scholarships awarded to local youth seeking higher education.
