Staying close to the earth is staying close to the riches of life
Alloro Vineyard is built on this very idea. We focus all of our energy, knowledge, and passion towards creating the highest-quality offerings solely from our single-vineyard estate. From our home in the Chehalem Mountains, to your table. Salute!
This is a 100% Estate Pinot noir made without any skin contact to create a slightly pigmented white wine. Bianco di Nero, meaning 'white from black' in Italian, highlights our Pinot noir's distinct characteristics without the influence of skin contact, tannins, and flavors.
A terroir-driven Pinot Noir focused on showcasing the distinct personality of our vineyard site. This is accomplished through decisions and extremely careful handling focused around maintaining the purity of our fruit and avoiding the contribution of outside flavors, primarily through the use of a lower percentage of new oak (25-30%) and a carefully managed fermentation.
Every year there are always one or more special barrels in the cellar that really speak to us… offering the finest texture and the most weight, roundness, structure, expressive aromas, complexity, and overall balance of all our wines. These few barrels, which typically include our highest percentage of new oak (45-75%), are set aside early in the year before consideration is given to which barrels will be selected for our other wines.
