Kim Roberts co-owner of Westport Winery joins us to talk about Westport, Wine, Whiskey, and Women (Mermaids).....
Kim and her husband Blain retired to Westport which is a great introduction to this episode. Realizing that they were bored and wanted to do something else. After a visit to California they wanted a project. Soon they knew they wanted to open a winery. Without knowing much about wine!
Founding Westport Winery in 2008 and in 2011 they were named Washington Winery to Watch by Wine Press Northwest. How is that for not knowing much about wine only 3 years earlier!
Kim appears to have boundless energy and after the winery, they have opened a restaurant, distillery, and now a Mermaid Museum.
The International Mermaid Museum focus is teaching ocean ecology from the ocean floor to the beach. Blending Mermaid mythology with ecology the museum is an amazing experience. The story of how the museum came into existence is amazing. Operating as an IRS 501c3 non-profit the museum can give back to the community.
Make sure you listen to this episode. Kim was a wonderful guest and her energy and passion for Westport will have you wanting to visit Westport ASAP.
