Bend >Maragas Winery Tasting Room
I'd passed this lone winery a thousand times making the trip to and from Sisters and Camp Sherman and never stopped, but when I finally did, I was bummed I hadn't visited sooner. The setting is breathtaking and the owners have done everything possible to keep you there for a while--there's ample tasting, great snacks and good quality chocolate, a big outdoor patio and even a bocce court.
Love that Legal Zin!. We stopped at this little tasting room by the Mill Quarter and had a blast! Doug Maragas, the winemaker and owner, happened to be there and shared the story of the winery. They started in a garage in Bend and now have a huge winery in Culver. They are in the process of planting their vineyard and have an adorable 2yr old who is the winemaker in training. The wines are wonderful, in particular the Legal Zin (a real steal at $16) The labels have beatnik characters on them that his mother drew in the 50's. They are adorable and they have them on glasses, coasters etc. A really jazzy, fun atmosphere with great wine and people. We highly recommend visiting.
