“What a family run vineyard should be.”
Reviewed 8 May 2013 via mobile

Loved the relaxed, friendly style of this winery. This is thw second year we have been here. We have met Chris only twice and he made is feel like we had been friends for years. Amazing wines! We love them all but Lusso is the favorite! See you next year Chris (or maybe even sooner!).

“Great experience”
Reviewed 26 September 2012

Our driver from our previous day's wine tasting got us a reservation here and we were so glad we made it. Lovely little family run winery, beautiful tasting room and lots of fun. The wine was excellent - if you get a chance you'll want to try this one. Terry was an excellent host. Tasting fee regardless of purchase.

“Wonderful wine and visit”
Reviewed 8 September 2012

After visiting 7 wineries/vineyards in two days, you may think we may have been wined out...but even though Allora was the last place we visited, it really was one of our favorites. The private tasting down in the cellar was very laid back and relaxing. I believe Terry, the owner, does a lot of the tours and have heard he has a big fun personality, but I think it was pretty cool that Chris, his son, ended up being our host. His personality was perfect for me and my husband! We saw him the next night out to eat and it was like seeing a long time friend. :) Oh yeah, and it didn't hurt that the wine was delicious. :)

“Fantastic - Wine and Experience”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

My wife and I hired a car service and guide, James with Flex Wine Tours (reviewed independently), to take us around Napa for 2 days. We toured 8 wineries in two days, 4 on Saturday and 4 on Sunday.

Allora by far was our favorite winery on our trip. The humorous personality of Terry was very refreshing along with the amazing wines that he produced. This was a completely private tasting experience with just us and the owner, at his estate. After a short stroll through the grapes, we entered his wine cave to start tasting the varietals. Almost every varietal that we tasted was REALLY outstanding, but the Lusso reserve cabernet was fantastic. Needless to say we took home a couple of cases and a set of 4 of Terry's patented wine glasses.

If you like cabernet and private tastings, Allora is an absolute on your next trip.
