Local wine lovers will be very excited to learn that one of Central Oregon wineries, Maragas Winery, has planted 18 acres of new vines for the future. Owner Doug Maragas says that 2012 will be a great year; first because Central Oregon has been declared an official "wine region" in Oregon, and second, they have pressed their first Pinot Noir grapes, a wine that Oregon has become famous for. "We crushed Pinot Noir for the first time this fall. And we've had very good luck so far with several different vintages that we have of zinfandel, merlot and cab and chardonnay. So we'll have seven of the 10 wines that we make available. And that's more than we've every has as far as variety." Maragas says he feels that the winery has really gotten "into the groove" of where they need to be and they are developing a sparking wine with last years' harvest. Maragas Winery is located in Terrebonne and is open Tuesday through Sunday.
