The grapes in Kraken, their ultra-premium Cabernet Sauvignon, were harvested at the world famous Klipsun Vineyard in the Red Mountain AVA and Elephant Mountain Vineyard in the Rattlesnake Hills AVA.The winery is equally proud to announce that a portion of the proceeds from this wine will benefit the Grays Harbor Historical Seaport Authority, the owners and operators of Lady Washington. The Lady was a star in the first Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl movie playing the role of the HMS Interceptor. She is Washington State’s Tall Ship Ambassador as well as the State Ship. Built in Aberdeen, Washington, in 1989, she is a replica of a classic brig.The Kraken label features original art by winery founder and co-owner Kim Roberts. Each of Westport’s wines is commemorated in their world-class gardens with a sculpture by a local artist. In this case, Tyler Hansen of Hansen Metalworks in McCleary, Washington, created the giant Kraken that resides on the entrance portal to the winery.For more information you may visit the Westport Winery website or call 360-648-2224. Westport Winery Garden Resort, Ocean’s Daughter Distillery and the Sea Glass Grill are open daily from 11:00 a.m. to 6 p.m.
