Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — Seven area wine and cider makers will offer tastes of their libations in a fundraiser for Fort Worden State Park from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 17.

The tasting, hosted by Friends of Fort Worden State Park, will be in the USO Building at the park.

How much

Admission is $15 per person. It will be half off — $7.50 — for Friends of Fort Worden members or free with a purchase of a $25 Friends of Fort Worden membership.

Tickets will be available at the door.

Wines and ciders will be provided by the Christina James Winery, Eaglemount Wine & Cider, FairWinds Winery and Alpenfire Cider of Port Townsend; Finnriver Farm & Cidery of Chimacum; Marrowstone Vineyards; and Lullaby Winery of Walla Walla.

Light hors d'oeuvres will be provided by Bon Appetit, courtesy of the Friends of Fort Worden.

Local wines, ciders, food

“We invite you to enjoy our local wines, ciders and foods with friends, all while supporting Fort Worden State Park,” said Rick Sepler, board president.

The Friends of Fort Worden was established to support Fort Worden State Park.

In the wake of an agreement between State Parks and the Fort Worden Lifelong Learning Center Public Development Authority, which makes part of the park a learning center campus under the management of the PDA, the Friends will raise private funds for both organizations.

Funds will support restoration of the historic buildings, programs, events and maintenance at Fort Worden State Park.
