Shallon Winery is a very small, one-man operation that is open every afternoon, one to six PM, and has been for over 30 years. It, therefore, has to specialize in unique products unavailable elsewhere, such as totally wild berry wines, whey wines, Lemon Meringue Pie wine, and, Chocolate Orange wine. It is a working, functioning winery, not a wine shop.The winemaker prefers a one on one relation with his guests, which entails a brief visit and explanation in the wine making room, followed by tasting all the wines available in a sequence.Local historical information is usually included in the presentation.This visit may run from a minimum of a half hour to an hour or more depending on questions and conversation.Unfortunately, the winery can not afford to entertain larger groups, and frequently is closed to the walk-in public during the days of cruise ship arrivals. However, serious individuals or couples may call during the day for an appointment at those times.
