Legends of Washington Wine. I’m Greg Martin with today’s Fruit Grower Report.
Legends of Washington Wine is a program of the Walter Clore Wine and Culinary Center, named after the late Dr. Walter J. Clore. Each year the Clore Center names an outstanding wine industry leader to be inducted into the Legends of Washington Wine. NW Ag Networks Lacy Gray has more.
GRAY: The 2012 inductee into the Legends of Washington Wine Hall of Fame is WSU Research Winemaker George Carter, who worked side-by-side with Dr. Walter Clore. Carter graduated from UCLA in 1935 with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, and took graduate courses at both U.C. Berkeley and Washington State University. As part of his day-to-day activities, Carter developed a system for classifying American, European and hybrid grape varietals. In recognition of his wine making accomplishments, Carter was elevated to a Supreme Knight in the International Brotherhood of the Knights of the Vine. Carter enjoyed 69 years of marriage to his wife, Susan. The couple had eight children, with whom he enjoyed camping and hunting. Following retirement, George continued to make wine and work in the family vineyard until his passing in 2007 at the age of 94.
