Bend Walking Wine Tours
It's true that the list of local vineyards is small, but that doesn't diminish the enthusiasm for fine wine in Central Oregon. While not yet an AVA (American Viticultural Area) it will only be a matter of time before this area gets added to the existing 18 AVA's of Oregon.
Wine is about passion and that is well demonstrated in the 6 local tasting rooms in and around Bend. Half are simply tasting rooms for their labels, as for example, Bledsoe Family Winery, whose wine making takes place in Walla Walla, Washington. There's a micro winery at Elixir, right here in Bend.
So fear not fellow wine enthusiasts, you can get s splash of Syrah while riding your bike along the city streets, or join a group of tasters on one of my Bend Walking Wine Tours, coming to town soon!
