Westport Winery’s tasting room which includes the Sea Glass Grill and the Ocean’s Daughter Distillery tasting room remain open for business after a devastating fire in the evening of Saturday, May 15th.
The fire started just before 11:00 pm where the spirit production building for Ocean’s Daughter Distillery, a subsidiary of Westport Winery, was destroyed by the fire. The Roberts family who owns the business and live on the property were alerted of the fire by drivers on SR 105 at 10:57pm.
Grays Harbor Scanner Facebook was live on the scene of the fire as one of their admins a news reporter was close by and caught some of the fire action.
One of those people who called the fire in to 9-1-1 was a winery employee passing by on her way home from an evening with friends. She pounded on winery co-owner Carrie Roberts door to notify her of the disheartening scene. Another good Samaritan pulled in to the winery’s commercial entrance and began fighting the fire with a garden hose. He prevented the adjacent winery production building and the company’s harvest cargo trailer from catching fire.
