Chef Matthew Sigler
The grandson of Nebraska dairy farmers, Chef Matthew figured out early where he wanted to focus his culinary aristry: hand-crafted pastas, whole animal butchery, seasonal ingredients, rustic preparations. A graduate of Le Cordon Bleu College of College of Culinary Arts in San Francisco, Matthew trained at some of the Bay Area’s top restaurants, including Quince, Foreign Cinema and Flour + Water, where he honed his pasta- and salumi-making chops before taking a sabbatical in Colombia and Italy in 2014.
As Executive Chef at Portland’s Renata, Sigler developed the relationships with local farmers, ranchers and artisans that now enrich his work at Il Solito. When he’s not at work in his own restaurant, he’s usually eating or drinking in someone else’s, but this “aspiring outdoorsman” is also trying to spend more time enjoying the natural charms of the Pacific Northwest.
Caring for the land, cultivating its greatest offering, and joining friends at the table. These are the things we love to do, and they’re all right here on the estate farm. Our founder caught sight of a vision as a boy from his relatives in Italy and Croatia: Staying close to the earth is staying close to the riches of life. Alloro Vineyard is how we take that tradition forward—thoughtfully growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Muscat and handcrafting them with utmost care into wines that recall a heritage of hard work, conviviality, and shared leisure.
