Bledsoe Family Winery Open in the Box Factory | Chow | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

On Aug. 15, Bledsoe Family Winery opened the doors of its Bend tasting room. The 3,593-square-foot space includes indoor and outdoor areas, a mezzanine for private events and wines from the Doubleback Winery and Bledsoe Family Winery.

Bledsoe Family Winery is owned by Drew and Maura Bledsoe, who moved to Bend 12 years ago following Drew Bledsoe's retirement from the National Football League. The new tasting room is the family's first to be opened outside of Walla Walla, Washington—Drew Bledsoe's hometown, where the family operates Doubleback Winery and the original Bledsoe Family Winery locations.

As Drew Bledsoe said in a release, "Bend has long been a beer and outdoors town, both of which have become interwoven into the fabric of the town. And we felt that the timing is right to pair great wine with the area's beloved outdoor-oriented culture, too, and to do so in a way that is both unique and fun."
