Olympic Cellars, formerly Neuharth Winery, is honoring the memory of founding winemaker Gene Neuharth and celebrating the winery’s place in Washington wine industry history from 11 a.m.-

6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 1-2,

Meet Neuharth’s wife, Maria, and enjoy a charity re-enactment of the winemaker’s weekly poker game at 3 p.m. on Sunday.

Visitors can buy in and play a couple of hands for a small donation. All winnings will be donated to a charity she selects, in Gene Neuharth’s name.

Neuharth will serve her stuffed grape leaves (Greek dolmades), which she used to make for her husband’s weekly games.

The anniversary weekend will feature the release of Neuharth’s Legacy, a commemorative 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Cabernet Franc blend made with fruit from Champoux and Boushey Vineyards.

In addition, "The Heritage 4" will be available. This features three original Neuharth wines Dungeness Red – Dungeness White and the former Dungeness Rosé – as well as the Neuharth’s Legacy release.

A gourmet appetizer plate from Joy’s Wine Bistro and a glass of wine will be served on the winery’s outdoor patio from noon-5 p.m. each day.

Tickets cost $15 and can be purchased in advance at the winery or online at www.Local WineEvents.com.

Music on the patio will be provided by disc jockey Double Exposure from 1-5 p.m. on Saturday and from 12:30-3 p.m. on Sunday.

A Saturday night barn dance, beginning at 8 p.m., will feature live music by Fat Chance. A $5 cover charge for the barn dance will be donated to Family Planning of Clallam County’s Gynocare Fund.
