Central Oregon Vineyard Event Supports Cancer Research Center

Usually when we think of wineries in Oregon we consider Willamette Valley and the Columbia Gorge areas. However several wineries are also located in Central Oregon. Wine lovers will find Faith, Hope and Charity Vineyards and Events Center in Terrebonne, Oregon about a 2.5 hour drive from Portland. The Vineyards and Events Center is a bit unusual as they are in the process of creating a resort on 315 acres.

In addition to hosting a variety of private events they also feature public events. On Sunday, October 12 they will host their 2nd Annual Central Oregon Wine Stomp: Crush Cancer. A 5k and 10k race is planned. A celebration after the event will include wine, food and music.

Tickets are $35 a piece prior to October 3. After that date the tickets will be $40. Participants will receive a special t-shirt, wine glass and the first beverage of wine or beer. Tickets are available at select area Bend businesses and online.

Proceeds from this fun event will be donated to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

The climate of the area means Faith, Hope and Charity Vineyards are growing hybrid grapes that can thrive in the shorter season. Grape varieties in the 15 acre vineyard include: LaCrescent, Vignoles, Marechal Foch, La Crosse, Frontenac Gris, Traminette, St. Croix, Leon Millot and Marquette.

The Central Oregon Wine Trail started by Cindy Grossmann runs from Bend to Terrebonne and includes six stops. Wineries included are Cork Cellars, The Open Door, Volcano Vineyards, Naked Winery and Maragas Winery. A map is located on the Faith, Hope and Charity Vineyards website.
