The winery’s Farm to Fork Restaurant is known for fresh, homemade meals at lunch and dinner. Two of their guests’ favorite menu selections are the Bubba Burger with Bacon Jam and their Dungeness crab cakes made with locally caught crab. Both of these recipes are highlighted in the story about this unique destination winery and paired with two of their 38 wines.The Bubba Burger is matched with the winery’s highly-rated Swimmer Petite Sirah. Of this 91-point wine, the tasting notes say it is, “A tattooed biker wine, muscular and dangerous.” This label features a young Dana Roberts, the family winemaker, after a swim competition on Maui where he was born. A portion of the proceeds from this wine benefits Grays Harbor Children’s Advocacy Center.The Dungeness crab cakes are matched with the winery’s double gold medal winning Fleur de Lis Pinot Gris, described as “A vision of jasmine, melon and white tigers.” A portion of the proceeds from this wine–featuring an iris watercolor by Darryl Easter–is donated to Hoquiam’s 7th Street Theatre.Westport Winery and Vineyards By-the-Sea Gardens with the unique outdoor sculpture garden, lavender labyrinth, musical fence, 9-hole executive golf course, giant chess set, outdoor scrabble game, and grape maze, is located on the corner of Highway 105 and South Arbor Road halfway between Aberdeen and Westport.
