Wine Country's Premier Inn & Spa, The Allison to open August, 2009
better place to experience Oregons abundance than where it all began, the
Willamette Valley, a fertile paradise that yields an agricultural bounty ranging
from hazelnuts to pears and wine? And in August, 2009, it gives rise to The Allison
Inn & Spa, a 35-acre hillside destination hotel in Newberg, Oregon (20 miles
southwest of Portland.)
That this region could reap so much
bounty should surprise no one. Its done so for more than 160 years. Early
settlers quickly tapped the valleys rich topsoildeposited during the
last Ice Age by raging floodwaters that poured from Montana across Eastern Washington
and down the Columbia River Gorge. The Allison was named after the resulting 300
square-mile lake that briefly covered the entire Willamette Valley from Portland
The Austin family owners, visionaries behind The
Allison, are direct descendants of this fertile region's earliest settlers. Which
means their family legacy reaches deep into the Willamette Valley soil, rooted
in seven generations of personal history.
And now visitors
to the Oregon wine country of the Willamette Valley will have a one-of-a-kind
destination inn and spa at the heart of it all a soothing retreat for those
looking to enjoy some of the best local wines, cuisine and natural beauty that
Oregon has to offer.
