Celebrate Thanksgiving weekend, Friday November 23 from 3-8pm & Saturday November 24 from 11am-6pm at Maragas Winery located at 15523 SW Hwy 97, Culver Oregon (4 miles north of Terrebonne) The event will feature live music, wine and barrel tasting, and food sampling. Cost of entrance either day is $10 OR bring 4 cans of food and get in for $5. Kids under 12 are free. Admission includes one barrel tasting of Maragas Winery’s Pinot Noir and the first 400 adult guests will receive a commemorative tasting glass.

Winemaker Doug Maragas stated “Thanksgiving weekend is a great time of year to spread the bounty of food from the recently completed harvest in our food abundant state. Again, for this year’s Harvest Fest and Barrel Tasting, we’ll be benefiting the Central Oregon food bank.” Maragas was very excited about last year’s result, raising nearly 1,000 pounds of food. “This year, we’d like to crack the 1,000 pounds barrier and collect 1,500 pounds of food.”

Food collected will go to NeighborImpact’s Food Bank Warehouse in Redmond where it will be sorted and distributed amongst 45 partner agencies located throughout the tri-county area.
