PROSSER, Wash. -- A Nevada-based construction company will build the Walter Clore Wine and Culinary Center.

Port of Benton commissioners Monday agreed to award the construction contract to Burke Construction Group, which has an office in Spokane. Sixteen bids were received earlier this month and Burke was the low bidder, said Diahann Howard, director of economic development and governmental affairs for the port.

The contract is for about $3.2 million. The center will be 14,900 square feet, with a 4,000-square-foot outdoor patio. It will tell the story of the state's wine industry and honor Clore, a research scientist and wine industry pioneer.
