We decided we earned some libation, so headed over to Maragas Winery up the road. It's a small, casual place full of the owner's mother's art. The beautiful views of Smith Rock were enhanced by the excellent wines, especially the Tempranillo and the Chardonnay, which was lighter and less oaky than the California versions. You must visit this gem if you are in the area!
|Peaches, the vineyard dog. She tried to come home with us when she smelled the beautiful local raw cheddar and hard salami with Herbes de Provence that we were taking for dinner.|
To cap off this fabulous Central Oregon day, we stopped at the Crooked River Gorge to admire the views
What a stellar day with a stellar friend!
