Central Oregon Wine Trail

May 15, 2014

“You know, with the Ale Trail, it would be so nice to have a Wine Trail — and so we thought, ‘Why not?'” said Cindy Grossmann, owner of Faith Hope and Charity Vineyards in Terrebonne and creator of the Central Oregon Wine Trail.  The six-stop trail takes you from Bend (home to our very own Pronghorn) to Terrebonne, Culver and Sisters.  While on the trail you will sip local flavors from Volcano Vineyards, Naked Winery, Faith Hope and Charity Vineyards, Maragas Winery, Cork Cellars and The Open Door.  Indulge in wine tasting, gourmet food and amazing music performed by talented local musicians.  The perfect way to enjoy the flavors and scenery of the majestic Central Oregon. Faith Hope and Charity Vineyards instructions for the trail:

 

Start your adventure in beautiful Sisters Oregon at the Cork Cellars or The Open Door, where you will find a wide selection of both boutique and reserve wines available. Be sure to include a gourmet cheese platter! Then head out to Holmes road and enjoy a scenic drive to Faith, Hope and Charity Vineyards. The first vineyard/winery in Deschutes County, excitedly expecting their first full harvest this year! Growing cold, hardy hybrid grapes, and thrilled to share their passion and award winning wines. Enjoy another scenic drive down Lower Bridge over to Culver and visit the founding vineyard and winery of Central Oregon, Maragas Winery! Specializing in artisan, hand crafted wines. These wines will excite even the most avid wine enthusiast! From there head down to Bend and stop in at Volcano Vineyards where they hand craft single vineyard varietals and luscious premium blends. Don’t miss out on their Sangria! And what better way to finish the day than getting Naked with the fun folks at Naked Winery! Their mission is to produce premium class Oregon and Washington wines.
