Washington Athletic Club Wine Program Awarded for a Coveted Fourth Time by the International Wine Society
With over 610 bottles from 89 growing regions spanning six continents, it’s no wonder why the WAC’s wine program has grabbed the attention of the private club scene.

In early 2023, the WAC’s celebrated wine program was given its fourth Award of Distinction by the Club Management Association of America International Wine Society. It’s a coveted award in the private club space that cements the WAC wine program in rarified air.

Congratulations to Peter and the Washington Athletic Club!
