Oregon pinots are renowned, and you can sip famous Willamette Valley pinots at two new tasting rooms in Bend. Stoller Wine Bar was voted a best wine bar in Central Oregon and stylishly blends urban modernity with small-town friendliness. Domaine Serene has been named as home to a top pinot noir in the world, producing chardonnay and sparkling wine too. Their wine lounge in downtown Bend is located in the historic Spheir Building and they offer an immersive wine and food experience. Looking for wine with a view? Faith Hope & Charity Vineyards in Terrebonne is the place to pair a glass of estate-grown wine with an incredible vista of the Cascades. Above photos by Steve Heinrichs.
