Mt. Bachelor has always been a big draw for tourists, and recently, cycling events have become quite popular.. And now we can add another feather in our cap. Central Oregon will be officially declared a "wine region" by the Oregon Wine Board this year. Alana Hughson with the Central Oregon Visitors Association says the rapid development of new microbreweries and now having the wine region means a wider variety of tourists will look to Central Oregon to visit. "Eating and drinking is one of the top activities that people participate in when they travel. And the fact that we can offer not only great food, but great beer and great wine, all managed grown, produced locally, it's really exciting. And it's a very new innovative new piece in the tourism tool kit. And we will definitely be promoting it heavily in our messaging as we move into 2012 and beyond." Hughson says we are quickly becoming kind of like a French region where tourists will want to take bike tours and visit all the wineries, breweries and restaurants.
