The stories we heard were very interesting, and the "view" painted in the windows provided a unique view of history. The time we spent there learning about wine making and the wines of Shallon Winery was time very well spent. The wine wasn't the cheapest available but we believe it is of great value and worth the price asked ($22-$42/bottle).
The taste of the Chocolate Orange wine, was the most unique and true chocolate orange, we've ever experienced. For more info: http://www.shallon.com/chocwine.htm. We bought 2 bottles of the Cranberry Whey wine and realized we should have bought more very quickly after we returned home.
We will definitely return to Shallon Winery when we return to Astoria, and may make a special trip to Astoria just to see Paul and buy some more wine. I also recommend the You Tube video of Shallon Winery for a quick preview of your visit.
