Along with other local businesses Westport Winery Garden Resort will hold its annual Holiday Open House on Saturday, November 4 from 8am to 7pm. Guests are invited to discover the new enclosed sunroom addition to the winery. This lovely new space under the 7KW solar array is perfect for sunny days year around with its passive solar heating and huge picture windows. There are still tables outside on the patio for those who prefer the full Northwest experience.
Open house visitors are invited to complimentary sampling of mulled wine in the tasting room. There is free sampling of pumpkin dip in the gift shop and cranberry orange shortbread from the winery’s bakery. In addition, the winery will offer its regular wine, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and gourmet food sampling throughout the store.
The mulled wine will feature Skookumchuck, the winery’s sweet red wine. Guests will receive a complimentary spice bag with the purchase of each bottle of Skookumchuck. Those who prefer the winery’s custom mulled spice will receive a $2 discount on jars or mini floats with a purchase of each bottle of Skookumchuck.
The winery has developed an easy Wish List for wine, gifts, and gift cards to simplify shopping for family, friends and co-workers along with free gift wrapping. It’s especially nice to know that a portion of the proceeds of each wine purchase is donated to local charitable organizations.
Guests who join wine club will receive a complimentary reusable six-bottle tote. Of course, wine club membership offers members and their guests complimentary wine tasting, free access to the Backstage Winemaker’s Tour (every Saturday and Sunday at 1pm), a 20% discount off wine (even when dining), and a 10% discount on all gifts and plants. This discount extends to members who ask the winery team to provide corporate gift baskets for their customers.
