BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- Pacific Northwest wineries have made their mark on the Bend community and are joining forces this October for the inaugural Bend Wine Month.
With a vibrant, hip energy, countless year-round outdoor activities, and thriving culinary scene, Bend isn’t just a beer town anymore. Area wineries are ready to celebrate the wide range of wines and hospitality experiences available in the cosmopolitan-esque mountain town.
“While the Bend Ale Trail put Bend on the map as a beer town, we’re excited by how Bend’s wine scene is flourishing,” explained Visit Bend CEO Kevney Dugan. “With mild weather and a quieter pace, October is a great month to visit Central Oregon and see what this vibrant community offers with a backdrop of stunning mountains, lakes, and rivers.”
Bend Wine Bar, Bledsoe Family Winery, Domaine Serene Wine Lounge, Evoke Winery, Stoller Wine Bar | Bend, and Va Piano Vineyards will welcome new guests and members to visit for unique flights, exclusive pours, and special perks.
To join the celebration, grab a passport map from any of the wineries listed above and start exploring the six locations to get a stamp. Return your completed map to any participating winery to be entered for a chance to win a gift card to the Old Mill and one of the six participating wineries. Six winners will be selected.
