Named for the volcanic soil that fosters many of Oregon’s grapevines, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant JORY at The Allison Inn & Spa offers creative, seasonal wine country cuisine and impeccable service in an unpretentious atmosphere. Many of the menu’s ingredients are sourced locally, including albacore, hazelnuts, Dungeness crab and regional cheeses. That sourcing brings extra flavor to everything from hand-rolled pastas to dishes such as smoked duck breast with figs, cedar-plank wild salmon and rabbit risotto. The award-winning wine program includes a 37-page wine list and a cellar with more than 800 bottles—with biodynamic, organic and sustainable wines noted, natch—which includes more than one hundred pinot noirs from Oregon and beyond. Unwind on the bar’s attached patio with fire pit, an ideal spot for a decadent dessert and after-dinner drink.
