House’s Loss: The Missed Sweet Treats and Salty Eats Road Trip Part 4

Palate Cleansing

For over 25 years, Allegro has produced incredible vintages with their own unique York County flare. Sample splendid wine and learn everything you ever wanted to know about the winemaking process from resident vintner and owner, Carl Helrich. Be sure to try the Cabernet Franc, and a local favorite, Chambourcin.
