This is us together years ago after a day in the mountains, the warm glow of effort and the satisfaction of a good climb under our feet. The last couple of months has been the hardest of hikes, even for a couple of sisters who like a good climb.
We understand things have relaxed and we are allowed to open our doors to you, and believe us we would LOVE nothing more than to do this. As the situation is constantly evolving, we want to take a slow and steady approach—the same way we like to climb.
So, after these weeks of closure we will be open by appointment from 11am-4pm Tuesday through Saturday. We can’t wait to greet you with our biggest smiles from beneath our masks. We encourage you to wear one too—smile and all.
We’re still figuring out the best way to re-open entirely, so until then we hope you will continue to support us through our website or by booking an appointment.
Please follow the link from our website or bio to book your appointments with us. We are so looking forward to seeing the top half of your faces!

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!

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 beautiful fall weather and a trip to the farm stand this weekend got me in the mood for this Roasted Squash with Spicy Onions dish.
The spicy onions are the perfect counter to the sweet Delicata, my favorite winter squash - but you can use whichever squash you love the most. Plus there’s other ways to vary this dish based on what you have on hand. Always a bonus these days.
A word about the wine - I paired it with our R. Stuart Love, Oregon White Sky. This just off-dry white blend is absolutely delightful and also complements the sweetness of the squash and contrasts with the onions. Win/Win
Go to rstuartwine story to see how to make it. Plus the recipe is through the link in my bio or just go to pinotmom.com and search for Roasted Squash.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

For more than a decade, the Willamette Valley Wineries Association has been honored to work with Portland-based artist John Fisher for original Memorial Weekend in Wine Country art.

John pairs his artistic vision with years of graphic design experience to create inspiring, sophisticated landscapes and figurative work. His landscapes have a definitive sense of place, allowing you to feel the emotion and mood of the day with his intuitive use of color and brushwork. The shifting force of weather has a profound impact on his work and ability to capture the soul of the Pacific Northwest landscape. John is an art director and designer in Portland, Oregon, originally hailing from Omaha, Nebraska. A graduate of the University of Kansas Fine Art program, he developed a passion for landscape painting while exploring the back roads and open plains of the Midwest. When not in the studio designing, he is likely to be roaming the countryside, capturing Northwest landscapes on canvas.

We asked winemakers for their stories from self-isolation, special offers, virtual events, favorite wine podcasts, quarantine jams, and charitable partnerships, and we gathered them all to create our #WVCommunity center.
