Maragas Winery, Culver

4.3
#115 of 181 in Wineries in Oregon
Our winery is located in a beautiful area of Central Oregon at 15523 SW Hwy 97, Culver, Oregon. Couched between the beautiful rock formations of Smith Rock and seven peaks of the majestic Cascade Mountains, our visitors relax on our patio and lawn and soak up our views.

Established in 1999, Maragas Winery is the founding winery and vineyard of Central Oregon. Our mission is to make old world hand crafted barrel aged wine that is unique to our style and exemplifying complex flavor. Much of our wine making techniques were handed down generation to generation in the Maragas family. Anna Maragas, the mentor of Doug Maragas - founder of this winery - coached Doug on old world winemaking techinques starting when Doug was a child. Anna founded the first Maragas wine and grape brokering business in 1941. And, Anna learned her techniques and understanding of the wine and viticultural industry via her parents and so on, in Crete, Greece, where the family vineyard still exists.

Along with our old world techniques, we're very conscience of preserving the new world. We focus on farming organically and being as environmentally friendly as possible. You may notice that we don't use capsules over the necks of our bottles. We do this because capsules have no preservation uses for wine and are not recyclable. Next, what you may not know is that the "corks" we use are the first zero carbon footprint "cork" and are actually made out of sugar cane. Finally, we have a solar array that powers a substantial part of our operation here at Maragas Winery. In all, we strive to play our part in keeping our winemaking environment sustainable for generations to come.

We invite you to join us in our love for grape and wine.

Experience our generations' old tradition and visit us at Maragas Winery.

  • I had selected Maragas Winery in preparing my trip to Oregon. We have indeed made a stop and we were not disappointed. In addition to very good wine tasting, we were able to chat with the young woman who greeted us and Exchange on the region of Oregon, and talk about our respective lifestyles. I encourage the french to stop in this vineyard which is worth a visit.

  • Great stop off of 97! Wish we could have spent more time and enjoyed the bocce court and views for longer! Great wines too!
  • Beautiful place and setting. I don't agree with $10-$15 to taste which is credited back if you buy not 1 but 2 bottles of wine. I have been to Napa, Walla Walla, and Willamette Valley a few times and never seen a policy like this. The wine is okay but not that special. The gal pouring the wine was great to deal with.
