The Faith, Hope and Charity Vineyards near Terrebonne is carving out a niche in local agritourism while winning some winemaking awards along the way.
In this week’s Destination Oregon Dave Jones takes us to the vineyard that bears the name of the local mountain peaks and is quickly becoming a popular Central Oregon attraction.
Thanks to the folks at Faith, Hope and Charity for showing us around and a special thanks to our Destination Oregon sponsor, Robberson Ford, for giving us the time and resources to take you to some of our state’s most beautiful and interesting locations every Thursday night on Central Oregon Daily.
Sarah Walcott and Robin Antonson from KIDS Center visit with Central Oregon Daily about the 2017 Cork & Barrel wine event happening July 20-22 at various locations in Bend. This benefit for the KIDS Center features Winemaker Dinners, Food and Wine Pairings at “A Sip of Cork & Barrel,” a Super Silent Auction and the Grand Cru where guests can mingle with the winemakers and enjoy a five course gourmet dinner and dancing.
This year’s theme is “A Taste of the Pacific Northwest” and features wines from Walla Walla, the Willamette Valley and the Columbia Gorge.
Forty-five years ago, the Sokol Blosser family was one of the first to plant “Pinot Noir” vines in the Willamette Valley long before the region became a hot spot for wine. This week, Wine Enthusiast magazine named the Willamette Valley the “Wine Region of the Year,” and Sokol Blosser Winery is at the heart of the industry in Dundee Hills.
Central Oregon Daily’s Mackenzie Wilson takes us one a behind-the-scenes tour of the winery with Alison Sokol Blosser in tonight’s Destination Oregon, sponsored by Robberson Ford.
