Westport Winery

Westport Winery
1 S Arbor Rd
Aberdeen, Washington
USA 98520
Phone: (360) 648-2224

Contact: Blain Roberts
Email: info@westportwines.com

Blain and Kim Roberts founded this venture on the urging of WSU agricultural extension agent, Don Tapio. “You should plant a vineyard and open a winery. It will be historic.” They purchased the land now known as Vineyards By-the-Sea in February 2007 and opened Westport Winery in March of 2008. Their son, Dana, is their winemaker and their daughter, Carrie, manages the tasting room.

In addition to their commitment to the business, everyone in the Roberts family has a passion for the sea and Washington’s coastal community. They express their passion by crafting great wines in a friendly atmosphere. Separately, they are ordinary individuals. As a team they complement each other to create a place and products that surpass expectations. Together the family selects a local charity to benefit from each of their wines. Their passion is the community, they express that passion by creating great wines and fond memories.

Blain was a nationally rated surfer in the 1970s, a Los Angeles County Lifeguard, scuba instructor, and founder of Lahaina Divers on Maui. Both Blain and Kim were licensed Coast Guard captains who met in Westport when Blain was building a boat and Kim was an architect with degrees from Washington State University. Dana and Carrie were both competive swimmers with degrees from Eastern Washington University. Dana is a graduate of Washington State University's professional winemaking program. While Kim and Carrie are certified divemasters, the surfboards on display in the winery are often missing as both Blain and Dana surf the breaks in Westport. And no trip to the beach is complete without their dogs and a pocket full of agates.

Their love of the water and the community’s seafaring history are reflected in each of Westport Winery’s buildings. Look for the element of water and a lighthouse somewhere on Westport’s labels as they capture the essence of coastal culture.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
