Westport Winery’s most popular red blend, Jetty Cat, earned a double gold medal and Best of Class at the Savor Northwest Wine Competition this week in Canon Beach, Oregon. Jetty Cat is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from Discovery Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA, Sangiovese from Red Willow Vineyard in the Yakima AVA, Petite Sirah from Jones Vineyard in the Wahluke AVA, and Tempranillo from Airfield Estates in the Yakima AVA. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this wine benefits the Harbor Association of Volunteers for Animals (HAVA). The label on this wine was painted by Aberdeen, Washington, artist, Dr. Brian McGregor.
The winery earned silver medals on Swimmer’s Petite Sirah from Jones Vineyard, Elk River Riesling from Red Willow Vineyard, and Surfer’s Syrah from Discovery Vineyard. These wines respectively benefit Grays Harbor Children’s Advocacy Center, the Grays Harbor Chapter of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, and the South Beach EMS in Westport. The partnerships and collaborative relationships Westport Winery has built with their grape growers and local charities are integral to their remarkable growth and success in their six year history. Westport Winery was the first winery on the Washington Coast and remains the westernmost vineyard in the state.
