Westport Winery’s 2011 Swimmer’s Petite Sirah earned a silver medal at the Dallas International Wine Competition. This wine was crafted with grapes from Jones Vineyard in the Wahluke Slope AVA. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this wine benefits the Grays Harbor Children’s Advocacy Center. The label features Director of Winemaking, Dana Roberts, as a young, competitive swimmer.
This is the Dallas Morning News and TEXSOM Wine Competition’s 30th year. The event remains one of the most respected wine competitions in the country and the largest in the southwest, judging 59,456 U. S. and international wines since its inception in 1985.
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.
