August 31, 2018, Dayton, OR – Stoller Family Estate is proud to announce it has been named the No. 1 Tasting Room in the Nation by the 2018 USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards. Nominees were chosen by a panel of relevant experts, which includes a combination of editors from USA TODAY, editors from 10Best.com, contributors, and sources for both these media and other Gannett Properties. Nominees were voted on by the public daily for four weeks.
“This is an unbelievable honor for our entire team,” said Bill Stoller, founder and owner of Stoller Family Estate. “Our estate is my family home. Our team prides itself on providing first-class hospitality in an approachable, down-to-earth environment. This award reflects the dedication of our team, and we owe a huge thank you to everyone who voted.”
When guests first visit the estate, they are welcomed with breathtaking vineyard views. The 4,000 square foot tasting room has floor-to-ceiling glass garage doors that, when open, create a sense of being in the vineyard. The tasting room is oriented in this manner because there is nothing more important at Stoller than its vineyard.
Open floor plans and rich textures are driven by Stoller’s mission of sustainability. The Net-Zero tasting room combines environmental sustainability and high-efficiency design to harvest 100 percent of its energy through an 1180-panel solar panel installation located across the estate. Other notable design features include a green roof, skylights, salvaged timber, and two EV charging stations for electric vehicles.
Guests can enhance their visit by reserving an Elevated Experience. The Legacy, Library and Gastronomic Tour and Tasting options each offer a different heightened sensory component to ensure visits are memorable.
Open seven days a week from 11 am – 5 pm, guests can enjoy a flight of wines for $20. The tasting fee is waived with a two bottle purchase. Cheese and charcuterie boards or items à la carte are available to purchase and enjoy while tasting. Outside food is always welcome on our lawn and patio.
