We all know Bend’s a great beer town.

But it’s also becoming one heck of a place to experience some of the fantastic wines that are coming out of the Pacific Northwest.


If there’s a better concept than bringing the rich, complex red wines of Walla Walla, Washington, to a riverside tasting room on the Deschutes, we haven’t heard of  it. At Va Piano, you’ll experience the intense flavors and aromas of Eastern Washington right here in Central Oregon.

Va Piano does atmosphere as well as it does wine. You can catch live music every Thursday from 6 to 7:30 p.m. through March, and the tasting room does special events on its outdoor patio during concert days at the Les Schwab Amphitheater.



There might not be a more fun place in all of Bend to split a bottle of vino with friends or loved ones than at  Naked Winery in the Old Mill District. Love vibrant tastes in an environment that refuses to take itself too serious?

Yep, Naked’s your kind of place.

There’s a lot to love at Naked, but we’re especially fond of the following:

  • Mimosa Sundays: The name says it all. Mimosas are $5 all day, every Sunday.
  • Monday Madness: Four bottles of wine for $99. (Bottles that are regularly $45 or less.)
