WARM UP WITH WILLAMETTE VALLEY WINES.
A year’s harvest is finally in the door, and the vines have released their brilliant leaves as they turn their energy inward. Young wines rest peacefully in barrel; their long slumber of transformation begins, and the promise of the vintage is now safely in the hands of our winemakers.
This is wine country’s coziest time of year. Cool, misty weather brings us indoors to the warmth of intimate tasting rooms, the hushed thrill of that first taste of the new vintage from barrel, opportunities to savor delicious food and wine pairings and the chance to share this moment with the talented makers who can finally catch their breath and embrace the calm of this special season.

At first glance, it's a pretty photo.
Look closer to see over 20 years of vision, dedication, and manifestation of Alloro Vineyard. It's all here ~ the original vines, the Production Facility, the bachelor apartment transformed into the original Tasting House, David's residence, and the New Tasting House.
There's a lot of history here! Visit us and we'll tell you all about it 😄 Make your reservation through Tock (linked in our bio).
Cheers from Alloro! 🍷🍷
The eve of harvest is all about planning, anticipation and excitement for the new vintage, especially in these challenging times 🍇.

A portrait of hard work, camaraderie, and old vine Pinot Noir. This shot from our own Lange estate vineyards from earlier this week. ...
The winter solstice, or Hibernal solstice, is upon us, with the earth’s tilt bringing the shortest period of daylight and (for many) the first official day of winter.
Revered as one of the oldest-known holidays in human history, Anthropologists believe winter solstice celebrations span more than 30,000 years.
Ancient peoples, fearing the shorter days meant the sun might go away forever, built huge bonfires to commemorate the winter solstice and to tempt the sun to return. The tradition of decorating our homes, trees, and wreaths with candles/lights at this time of year is passed down across cultures from those ancient bonfires.
The solstice of 2020 is taking the decorating tradition up a notch and bringing a vibrant planetary conjunction to the night sky.
Jupiter and Saturn, the two largest planets in our solar system, will have a close encounter of the celestial kind creating a bright blip of their own. Although they remain hundreds of millions of miles apart in space, from the Earth’s vantage point, the two planets will appear just one-tenth of a degree apart creating a special illumination in the sky.
How fitting it is that the day with the least amount of daylight and honored across civilizations with fires and light, provides extended evening viewing of a bright cosmic presence. A little something to keep us looking up in these final days of 2020. Sláinte!
ICYMI — King Estate turns 30 this year. Naturally, here's a baby-faced photo of our now thirtysomething Estate.
When King Estate was founded in 1991, it was driven by a commitment to sustainability & profound respect for the land. The adventurous spirit that inspired us from the beginning continues to guide us as we nurture our vineyards to craft premium Oregon wines. We have been establishing our traditions, one vintage at a time.

Also, who has been laying tiny eggs in our vineyard?
