Peter Figge Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Peter Figge Memorial Scholarship Fund supports high school seniors from our Monterey Wine families who are entering college. When we say, Monterey Wine Family, we mean it in the big, broad, inclusive way that would be just like Peter. If the seniors parents (or close family members) work in any aspect of the Monterey wine industry (from vine to glass), this scholarship is meant for them.

These youth are often the first generation from their family to enter college. These students inspire us, they work hard in school and life, demonstrating scholastic ability, community involvement, leadership, and a determination to succeed.
