Rank #5: In Alloro Vineyard with Owner / Winegrower Dave Nemarnik
Tour Alloro Vineyard in the Willamette Valley with Owner and Winegrower Dave Nemarnik.
Alloro brings Old-World allure to Oregon, just 30 minutes southwest of Portland.
The 80-acre estate is a bucolic homage to Italian tradition, from its iconic Tuscan farmhouse and culinary gardens to the heirloom sheep that graze the vineyard cover crops.
Alloro is Italian for laurel a salute to David Nemarnik's Italian / Croatian heritage, and the Laurel Ridge site itself.
Holistic agricultural practices and respectful stewardship create terroir-driven wines showcasing purity of fruit with a clear sense of place.

Rank #6: Vidon Vineyard and their Pinot Noir Clone Program
Winemaker David Bellows discusses the three clones of Pinot Noir grown on the Vidon Vineyard Estate with Austin Beeman.
Owned & operated by Don & Vicki Hagge since 1999, Vidon Vineyard is a LIVE certified sustainable vineyard and winery located in the countryside of Newberg, Oregon. They are situated in the Chehalem Mountains AVA at an elevation between 400 and 500 feet facing south towards the Red Hills of Dundee. Don and Vicki Hagge purchased the land in 1999, planted the vines, harvest the fruit, make the wine and sell it out of the winery. They believe winemaking begins in the vineyard and are proud of the Oregon wines that this Chehalem Mountains vineyard produces on an annual basis.
