Westport Winery and the Roberts family have selected the newly formed Grays Harbor Volunteer Search and Rescue Team (GHVSAR) to benefit from Float, their latest release. This organization has about 60 members throughout the county and has been diligently training and recruiting for several months. Westport Winery’s tasting room manager, Carrie Roberts, is a member of the team on the South Beach detachment. This new endeavor is designed to provide early response with well-trained volunteers to the many calls law enforcement receives as a result of those lost or victims of accidents in the county’s backcountry.
For more information on joining or supporting Grays Harbor Search and Rescue contact the GHVSAR recruiter, Patti Gow at firstname.lastname@example.org and for any additional information people can contact Sara Owen at email@example.com.
The art on this wine’s label was done by Ocean Shores’ artist Jerri Shrader. It features a glass ball awash on the sand, certainly one of most people’s most prized finds when beachcombing. This wine is available in a traditional cobalt blue bottle or in the winery’s signature glass ball bottle hand-crafted by Johnny and Darlene Camp of Opal Art Studio in Cosmopolis. This wine is available for tasting daily or it may be enjoyed while lunching or dining at the winery in one of their specialty wine cocktails using Float.
The winery donates a portion of the proceeds from each bottle of wine they sell to selected local charities. When they released their most unusual wine, Float a fortified Riesling, in October of 2012 a charity had not been selected even though the winery has been designating funds since then.
Westport Winery is open for wine tasting daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The winery’s restaurant is open for lunch daily from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with lunch until 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Dinner is served on Friday and Saturday evenings from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Remember to sample one of the winery’s hand-crafted cocktails when you visit for lunch or dinner. And check out their new bakery with everything from cakes and cookies to pies and bars. There is something for everyone at Westport Winery.
