Shallon Winery

Shallon Winery, Astoria, Oregon The Shallon Winery at 16th Street and Duane sits only one block and a few paces from the riverbank, but you can get an idea of how high it is above the level of the water from the slope of 16th Street. This intersection is where I took the photo of light glinting off of spiderweb-like repairs in the street. In fact, if you follow the link, you'll see what the winery is or is not sitting on. I'll bet this makes for an interesting basement.

Meet the building (Mediterranean), the winemaker (Paul), the wines, and dreams of lighter-than-air craft on Shallon's own web site. It's a fun and interesting read. Choclolate wine? Check it out. You'll also learn the unusual source of the winery's name.

I really like these small wineries...we have one in Mount Dora, Florida and another larger one just northwest of Orlando. The product is pretty good, too.

You think there's a basement? Interesting, to say the least. Happy late-blog-birthday!

Walking out after having a few, may present a problem.

I think it used to be an ice house.

Neat building, and interesting read. I'm familiar with the Salal. There's plenty of it around here.
