Take A Shot of Courage

Take A Shot of Courage

We are releasing our first Sagrantino today at Westport Winery. It is called Courage. You will need some courage of your own to handle the challenge of this big, bold red wine.

Once nearly extinct, a single vineyard in Italy brought this rare varietal back to the world of wine drinkers. We tasted it several years ago while exploring Texas wine country. (Yes, it's a thing). We loved it, came home, and searched Washington state for a grower. We picked this fruit at Inland Desert Vineyard near Red Mountain in 2018. You can imagine that it needs serious heat to ripen and this vineyard has what it needs.

The resultant wine is dark, filled with bold tannin and ripe fruit, with a completely dry, yet lengthy, finish. You may want to enjoy it with a hearty marinara, juicy rib eye, or sharp aged cheddar. (We have Cougar Gold back in stock.) This is a bottle that is definitely age-worthy if you want to wait to enjoy it in a few years. It is not for the meek, but if you want to give it a try we are now offering wine flights on the patio at Westport Winery Garden Resort.

We hope to open the building soon but are still navigating through the proper methods of compliance. Until then, we welcome you to call us at 360-648-2224 for curbside pick up or shipping of wine, spirits, gifts, plants and gourmet food. The Sea Glass Grill is open for take out food and beverages including cocktails to-go in sealed containers.

Westport Winery Seaside is already open daily from 11am to 6pm. Westport Winery Seaside Retreat is now taking bookings as well. Go to SeasideRetreat.WestportWinery.com to book you Oregon Coast beach vacation today.
