“Wine and music are one,” wrote Emerson. It’s not a perfect metaphor, but for the founders of Allegro Vineyards in Brogue, Pennsylvania, it certainly rang true that a person captivated by one might be at once captivated by the other, and in similar ways. Bachelor brothers John and Tim Crouch took a two-decade interlude from their musical lives to grow and make wine here. John, an oboist but most devotedly a composer, had a year and a half after selling the winery to return to his compositions before his death at 55 in 2003; Tim, a violinist, died in 2000 at the age of sixty. My husband Carl Helrich and I are now the grateful owners of Allegro, preserving it and moving it forward.

They sprinkled musical references lightly while naming and I heard John liken some of the wines to particular musical compositions, but it was a natural relationship, not a strained one. Read less
