Wine stomp at Maragas
Maragas Winery will hold its third annual Grape Stomp on Saturday, Sept. 1, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Celebrating the beginning of the grape harvest, Central Oregonians will again be able to step into the wine vats and stomp their feet over this year’s first grape harvest.
Winemaker Doug Maragas said in a news release, “It’s a great event to bring your family to and experience the fun of turning grapes into juice with your tootsies.”
Central Oregonians must have great feet for the task because the efforts of 2010 resulted in a wine, Central Oregon Tootsie, earning a silver medal in the prestigious San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. Coincidently, wine made from last year’s stomp will be released at the event and will be coined “Beat Red.”
The winery rests on an organic farm just north of Terrebonne. In tune with their environmental efforts, the stomp will be a BYOG (bring your own glass) event. Logo glasses will be available for purchase.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Terrebonne Community School. Everyone will be treated to a scoop of Graeter’s ice cream, made with Oregon blackberries.
Tickets are $10 at the door or $8 in advance. Admission includes stomp activities and a wine tasting, including wine from last year’s stomp. Admission for kids with parents or guardians is encouraged and is free. This is a family-oriented event with plenty of space for kids to frolic and stomp grapes. Food will be available for purchase, and picnicking is also welcome, with the exception of beverages. Although there will be chairs and tables on the patio, bring low-rise lawn chairs and blankets for comfort on the lawn. Live bluegrass music will be presented by Back from the Dead.
Stomp contests and barrel raffle starts at 12:30 p.m. Details of the event can be found on the Maragas Winery website at www.maragaswinery.com or by calling the winery at 541-546-5464. The winery is located four and a half miles north of Terrebonne at 15523 S.W. Hwy. 97 in Culver. Open for tastings daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
