• Westport Winery Earns Medals in Colorado and Connecticut

    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.

  • Bordello Blonde Garners Silver at State Competition

    WESTPORT, Wash. – The Westport Winery’s Bordello Blonde won a silver medal at the Washington State Wine Competition held in Yakima, Washington this month. This blend of off-dry Gewurztraminer and Riesling is the most popular white wine of Westport’s thirty-three award-winning creations. According to the tasting notes, like any bordello blonde, this wine “goes with anyone and anything”.

    A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this wine benefits the Aberdeen Museum of History. The label features an original drawing by Kim Roberts which is merged with underwater photography by her husband Blain Roberts, creating the only label they worked on collaboratively. The sculpture commemorating this label in the winery’s public outdoor art display is being carved by Aberdeen Museum curator Dann Sears. An unveiling date has not been determined.
