  • It has been a privilege and an honor to have known Mr. Paul for decades, 30 years and counting. He is not your average vinter master as he crafts excellent unique wines--wines with a story. Peach, Cho...  more »
  • This was our third visit to Shallon Winery and it was an excellent experience. We look forward to this visit all year long and never have been disappointed. Paul is a type of person you may meet once ...  more »
  • We had been referred by a friend and told it was both a unique experience and wine. After reading the web site, we were even more intrigued. Paul is a one man show so you call the number at the door a...  more »

  • My husband and I visited Mr. van der Veldt winery, and we enjoyed every bit of the experience. The tour and the stories were very informative and the owner is such a sweet gentleman. His recipes are unique (using whey? Never heard of it) and he deserves way more popularity. Must visit in Astoria!
  • Great, quirky winery, with wine made from everything but grapes. Love the owner. Do call ahead. This is a one of a kind winery. Many great things to see in Astoria including the Trolley tour, many restaurants, the column, coffee shops, ... About ten miles away is Fort Stevens State Park with weekly bird tours, daily kayak tours, junior ranger sessions in the summer, bike rentals, clamming, beaching, hiking... Connected to Fort Stevens State Park is Historic Fort Stevens museum and gift shop. Although moderate sized, both are very nice. The museum also hosts ticketed truck (army personnel carrier) tours of the military installations. Nearby, Seaside is a great ocean beach community, carnival like community, with paddle boarding and skim boarding opportunities as well as a unique golf course
  • Love going to Shallon winery. Every time I come to Astoria I have to stop by and grab a bottle. Love the work and his passion for his wine.
  • Absolutely incredible experience. Paul is 91 years old and runs things his way. Why shouldn't he?! It appears that has rubbed some folks the wrong way, but honestly just go in with an open mind. He's very passionate and tells great stories - enjoy it!
  • Buying wine here is not just shopping, it's an experience. I feel sorry for anyone that doesn't understand that or read up on this place before going. The 90 year old chemist that runs this fine establishment does so with love and pride, his wines are his masterpieces and finest creations. Like any artist he does not willy-nilly release them but take you through the process of their creation from conception of the idea to fruition of the final wine. I absolutely adore this place, it's wine, it's stories and it's proprietor. My only great concern is that he does not seem to have an apprentice and so the beautiful exquisitely unique recipes may be lost on his retirement.
