Support LS/Attend » Yulefest




La Salle's Annual Yulefest & Wine Tasting is the our oldest event, celebrated every year since the school opened in 1966. La Salle's history with the wine industry reaches back to the 1990s and before - when our district leaders owned and operated the Christian Brothers Winery as a way to pay for their educational communities.

Yulefest began as a small gathering of parents enjoying Christian Brothers wines with the Brother educators at La Salle. Today, it has grown into a festive evening celebration drawing more than 500 guests to enjoy Northwest wines and the people who create them.


Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, the Alumni Association held a Yulefest to You wine sale this year in partnership with Grochau Cellars. Three custom-labeled Yulefest wines were offered for sale, and a portion of the proceeds went to the La Salle Alumni Association. 


Thank you to all who participated, keeping the spirit of Yulefest alive in 2020. We look forward to the return of our in-person event; hopefully in 2021!
