Maragas Winery Gets a Makeover

I had a chance to sit down with local winter entrepreneur extraordinaire Doug Maragas this past week to talk about his new(ish) winery and vineyard

I had a chance to sit down with local winter entrepreneur extraordinaire Doug Maragas this past week to talk about his new(ish) winery and vineyard north of Terrebonne. We also touched on the future of his tasting room -- and former residence -- at the corner of Colorado an Bond. Maragas would like to unload the property and focus his attention on the Terrebonne vineyard and winery where Maragas has more than two dozen different kind of grapes growing on test plots that are surrounded by Alfalfa fields and amazing view of Smith Rock and the seven peaks. But with the still sagging real estate market in Bend there isn't much chance of that happening in the near future. So Maragas is going to try a slight change in approach at the tasting room in the next few weeks when he plans to transition the property into a "tap room" He'll be dropping in a couple of handles for draft beers and start serving wine right out of the barrel for $4 a glass if people take their drinks outside on the patio -- there's not a whole lot of elbow room in the existing space. Maragas said he'll probably serve a couple of craft beers for $3 a pint and offer some other amenity like wireless -- no doubt to lure part-time bloggers and newspaper editors.

Keep your eyes peeled for more announcement around the tap room, or just drop by; it should be up and running in no time.
