VIDEO: 2011 King Estate Wine Country Run

2011 Wine Country 5K Run Video

Our inaugural Wine Country 5K was a great success. Two weeks before the event we had to shut down registration due to overwhelming response and to save space for on-site registrants. This being our first year putting on the race, we wanted to make sure we could accommodate the parking needs and keep the runners safe. We ended up with 479 runners and many more spectators. We look forward to building on this success next year and hope you’ll join us! Big thanks to our friends at the Eugene Marathon for helping us put this together.

Springtime Brings Flowers and Sheep to King Estate Winery

Springtime at King Estate Winery brings flowers and sheep

With springtime comes new growth throughout the King Estate property. Our apple and plum trees have begun to flower, and the mustard and grass in the vineyard have been growing quickly. That’s where the sheep come in. King Estate uses sheep as natural lawn mowers. They enjoy munching on fresh shoots of grass and weeds, and we enjoy the fact that we don’t have to run tractors through the vines to trim the unwanted growth. In the process, the sheep also naturally fertilize the vines and help us reduce our carbon footprint.
