Westport Winery’s Fleur de Lis Festival is Saturday, June 9 from noon to 5p.m. This celebration is free to attend and open to all ages.
The Westport Art Festival will host Art In The Vines during this event as a precursor to their summer art fest. Be the first to discover the latest creations from some of the best known artists in the region. At 3 p.m. during the festival, Westport Winery will unveil the sculpture Fleur de Lis, by Lora Malakoff of Clallam Bay. Malakoff is well-known in the winery’s sculpture garden as the creator of Peaches on the Beaches and Bella.
Golden Glen Creamery from Bow, Washington will be sampling their award-winning cheeses. This farm is known for its responsible agricultural practices. The milk is non-homogenized and slow-batch pasteurized for better health and flavor. Cheddar flavors offered will include tomato basil; dill and garlic; chives and onion; jalapeno; sweet basil; lavender; and cloves, caraway and cardamom. Guests will also want to try River, their sharp, double cream cheddar. And Golden Glen is famous for their sweet, salty, smooth and melt on your tongue Gouda that is aged six months.
The winery’s popular Fleur de Lis French Onion Soup will be offered all day while the Electric Park Jazz Band performs.
Vineyards By-the-Sea (the farm side of Westport Winery) will be selling grape vines for your home garden. You can choose from Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Noir, Gewurztraminer, and Cabernet Franc plants — while supplies last. Join Westport Winery in celebrating 10000 irises in bloom!
