The Allison Inn & Spa Gets Acclaim

We love this place and am so glad they are being recognized as a leader in accommodation and luxury in America's wine country!
In the November 2012 edition of Condé Nast Traveler, The Allison Inn & Spa has been named
#3 in the Pacific Northwest and #1 in Oregon as voted by our patrons.
  Travel + Leisure  followed suit, naming us the #1 Wine Country Hotel in the United States and
#4 in the world. 
Perfectly paired with this news is the successful harvest of pinot noir grapes at The Allison's vineyard—
five acres of vines that serve as a backdrop for guestroom windows and terraces.
"There are only good things to say about this year’s harvest of The Allison grapes," said Chad Vargas,
Vineyard Manager and Viticulturist at Adelsheim Vineyard, which oversees our vineyard operations.
"The weather took a quick turn to excellent sometime in June, just after the grapes finished flowering.
What followed was many days of dry weather with temps above 80°F." 
This year will mark the first vintage of The Allison wine, to be bottled and named in the coming year.
With the accolades and this year's growing conditions, we are thankful and confident—2012 is a great year!
Celebrate the harvest with a recipe featured on our website for Roasted Delicata Squash Soup
by Executive Chef Sunny Jin.
