Create an itinerary including Maragas Winery
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.

  • We made a quick pit stop on the way through town. Beautiful gallery of hand painted pictures from the family and a beautiful view to sit out and sip some wine. Customer service was amazing, Gretchen knew exactly what she was talking about and gave an amazing and detailed history of the Maragas family and how/where they started making winds. It’s a little spendy, but what winery isn’t? Plus it’s totally worth their prices!! Natural wine with no chemicals, you can taste what the wine is actually made of, award winning wines, and fun wine labels. We will definitely be going back! We got the Frank Franc and Ana and I’m not even a red wine drinker!
  • Great experience, great wine and food and friendly staff. Very helpful also. Only thing is the food is a little overpriced (but really good!!!). Charcutery plate for 25$ was a bit small. Great olives! Beautiful place
