WESTPORT, Wash. – Westport Winery has again brought medals from international wine competitions to Grays Harbor.
In September, at the Denver International Wine Competition, Elk River Riesling and Captain Grays Gewurztraminer were awarded gold medals. The grapes used to craft these wines were grown at Red Willow Vineyards in the Yakima Valley AVA. Bog Berry Blush, the winery’s blend of Gewurztraminer and cranberry earned a silver medal.
At the Amenti de Vino Competition in Connecticut, Westport garnered silver medals on Ancient Mariner’s Pear, Bog Berry Blush, and Bordello Blonde, while Little Wild Blackberry brought home the bronze. Again, all the grapes for these wines were grown at Red Willow.
Westport Winery, the 2013 Best in the Northwest Destination Winery, is located on the corner of Highway 105 and South Arbor Road halfway between Westport and Aberdeen. For more information or dinner reservations call Westport Winery at 360-648-2224.
Donors are invited to make reservations for Westport Winery’s next Bella Blood Drive and join the Roberts family as they give the gift of life on Thursday, August 8 from noon to 5 p.m. The winery will accept reservations for up to three donors every 15 minutes during this timeframe.
