We ended up having a private tasting as no other folks had reservations at the time we went. Kelly and JJ were absolutely wonderful, helpful, and very gracious. We had a fantastic time talking with them, asking/answering questions, and a highlight was to meet their wonderful vineyard dogs - always a kindred spirit when you meet fellow animal lovers. We so enjoyed their wines that our group signed up for 2 wine club memberships (12 bottle) and are looking forward to trying even more of Aluve' s wines. Will definitely return to the winery when in the area next time. Our small group visited 4 different wineries over the weekend and BY FAR we found Aluve' our favorite. Especially enjoyed that smaller and more focused winemakers like Kelly & JJ who were so passionate and willing to spend a little time explaining and educating us on all things wine-making. Could not recommend Aluve' more highly - you should visit them !
Live this amazing new winery! It’s a perfect place to relax, learn about the wine we are trying, and enjoy the company of the owners. Thanks JJ and Kelly!
We always have a wonderful experience when we visit.
Amazing wines and service as usual. They made our yearly trip to Walla Walla another great memorable trip. See you next year!
Fantastic, friendly owners. Will definitely be back!
Our friends told us not to miss this tasting room. We loved the personal visit with the wine makers. They shared how they got into the business, the story of how their business developed and answered all our questions about their processes of making their delicious wines. There are many fancy tasting rooms in the area but Aluve provides an intimate and personal experience that you won’t get at other tastings. We highly recommend Aluve!
Fabulous experience. Great wine and people
We really enjoyed meeting Kelly and JJ. The wine was terrific and the view was superb!
Loved the story behind Aluve and enjoyed all of the wines.
We had a wonderful time at Aluve! JJ and Kelly are so welcoming and informative and their wines are excellent! We have been to Walla Walla many times and always make it a point to visit here. Be sure and make this one of your stops next time you visit!
Aluve wines keep getting better every year. The 2018 vintage is top notch and is sure to please any Bordeaux varietal drinkers.
Kelly & JJ delivered an Awesome experience Topped off by wines well done.
Alluve was our favorite winery we visited during our whole trip! Beautiful scenery, wine and people! We will definitely be back!
The wines were amazing and the service was very friendly. We’d definitely go back!
Enjoyed the tasting and JJ’s presentation
Everything was outstanding! I rated food “0” because we didn’t get any food. Therefore the “0” should be understood as “not applicable.”
Fantastic experience! By far our favorite new Walla Walla discovery!
Extremely nice people and a great experience. Highly recommended
The owners were so wonderful and kind. We loved their wine! We also felt very safe there. The tables were kept far apart and everything was very clean. Great experience!
Excellent wine poured by exceptional people. Thank you for a beautiful tasting.
outstanding experience; No Food
One of the best wineries in Walla Walla. A must visit place!
Our hosts, JJ and Kathy, were not just knowledgeable but terrific hosts and genuinely interested in our questions regarding their wines. Their boutique vineyard has produced an exceptional Cab/Merlot/Petit Verdot blend that was just scrumptious! Highly recommended!
We were smitten upon arrival! The owners/winemakers spent so much time chatting with us and answering questions. We loved the ambiance - what is not to love. But the WINE - oh the wine - it was so very good. We ordered one of everything we tasted! We have already passed along our experience to wine-loving friends and hope to return as soon as we can. We are FANS.
JJ and Kelly were terrific. My girlfriend and I visited a total of 5 wineries over a non-holiday weekend, driving down from Spokane. We really appreciated the story the shared. Another vineyard, while a gorgeous property and one that featured a brunch, felt like being 'served' by banquet servers. Classy and overall good appearance but no points for explaining the wine. My dad was a Vietnam vet and JJ and Kelly's backgrounds as pilots, really just made me very happy. I loved their story overall. We also really liked their white wines as I'm usually a red guy and so is my girlfriend. And the value was excellent consider other vineyards in the Walla Walla region.
Fantastic winery and experience. Highly recommended!
What an amazing experience. As hot as it was, the wine drank beautifully, the ambiance of the outdoors -amazing, and the wine makers were so kind and are gifted in their craft! We did not have food due to Covid, but I am sure it would have been great as well
Great wines. The BEST owners. Beautiful setting. Loved everything about this visit.
Kelly and JJ have created an idyllic setting to taste beautifully crafted wines. There’s nothing like tasting estate Chardonnay in view of the vines with the winemakerS explaining their vision. Excellent experience, and I also appreciated their attention in ensuring a safe environment for all. I left with a box of wine and a new club membership.
Owners worked to make our visit special. Services is limited by Covid. Wines are excellent and we left with several bottles of each varietal. This is our favorite winery to visit in Walla Walla.
Beautiful view, fabulous wine, and great service. We will be back!
We had a great experience! Will definitely be back-for the wine and beautiful setting! Thank you!
Kelly and JJ are the nicest and their wines are fabulous. It's a little unknown gem in Walla Walla and we feel like we somehow discovered them early and continue to support them!
It doesn't get much better than this quint essential Walla Walla winery. A beautiful estate vineyard at the foothills of the Blue Mountains surrounded by wheat fields. Stunning views, a tour of the grounds and wonderful award winning wines! The owners and wine makers JJ & Kelly treated us to a private 1 on 1 intimate wine tasting experience. Thank you for sharing your story, educating us about the unique qualities of the wine valley and helping us celebrate our anniversary. Put this stop on your winery wish list, it will not disappoint!
Love aluve! Always so accommodating for our guests. Wine is fabulous! JJ and Kelly are great
Awesome hosts, awesome wine and one heck of a view.
No food was served. JJ and Kelly always provide great service and info on winemaking and their wines. They have a beautiful new tasting room and are always so gracious. We had A great time Wine tasting with friends. They have some great wines. Worth the time to check them and their wines out!
Aluve is a lovely setting with terrific wines
Great lineup of wines and a beautiful tasting room. I look forward to going again.
Great winery and friendly Kelly and JJ. Hope to get back in the summer or earlier in the fall when there's no snow on the ground :)
Stunning location with beautiful views. Loved the owners; they have a great story and something we all aspire to. Good wine, but a bit pricey compared to the rest of The Valley.
Always a treat to be here
Great personalised and attentive service! I can tell JJ and Kelly take great care of their business and value their customers.
Owners are great hosts and the new building/patio has spectacular views.
Love the wine Our hosts JJ and Kelly were delightful Under the current circumstances felt the staff were a little overwhelmed causing to many people to be inside placing their wine purchase orders. Suggest the staff handle this outside while customers are still at their tables
