WESTPORT, Wash. - On January 1, Westport Winery will add a bakery to their business’s offerings. Winery co-owners, Blain and Kim Roberts, previously owned Farmer’s Daughter Bakery in Airway Heights, and have long considered this component a good pairing with their tasting room and restaurant. This new enterprise will feature their homemade oat rolls, quiche, pies, cakes, bars, and cookies. Chefs Nikki Demmert and Josh Burdick will offer a varied selection on any given day. The team will offer these items for enjoyment at the winery or “to go”, and by the slice or as a whole dessert. These new selections will augment the winery’s already popular dessert list.
In addition to these changes, the winery’s lunch menu will now include lobster rolls and a soup of the day. The lunch and dinner menus will add baked corkscrew pasta with Dungeness crab and Cougar Gold cheese. The dinner menu will add bouillabaisse, corkscrew pasta with Manila clams in a wine and garlic sauce, and prawns stuffed with Dungeness crab topped with Tillamook’s smoked white cheddar with black pepper. And for appetizers guests may enjoy a decadent bay shrimp cocktail.
This effort has been in the works for some time, but with the closure of Suzie’s Cakes with winery hopes to continue to provide community residents and visitors with delicious and beautiful desserts.
