Allora Vineyards was established in 1999. The proprietors of Allora Vineyards are Terry and Nancy Klein. Allora Vineyards is a winery located in Saint Helena, California. The wine at Allora Vineyards is produced by Rudy Zuidema. In 1998 the Kleins came across a 15-acre parcel on the north end of St. Helena, which had been used as pasturage for over 50 years. The soil was ideal for a vineyard as it was sandy loam and clay. They purchased it and immediately began to prepare it for a vineyard. Part of the preparation included consulting the notable growers in the Napa Valley who helped hand select rootstock and clonal varieties.
Presently, 10 acres of grapevines are planted on the Klein's estate. Eight acres are Cabernet Sauvignon vines, and the remaining two acres consist of Cabernet Franc and Petite Sirah. Additionally, the vineyard employs a unique planting style in which vines are grown closely together, forcing each plant to produce only a small amount of fruit of the highest quality possible. Allora had its first harvest in the fall of 2002 and has been producing exceptional wine with each new vintage.
Allora Vineyards produces the following wine varietals: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Syrah and Sangiovese.
