Bartlett Pear Harvest at King Estate

October 29 2012

King Estate Winery Organic Pear Harvest Oregon Wine Pinot Noir Pinot Gris

At King Estate we are best known for our wines, but we also have over 30 acres of organic orchards and gardens which produce a variety or fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers. Much of the estate harvest is used in our bakery and restaurant, but a considerable amount is also donated to FOOD for Lane County. This year’s Bartlett Pear harvest proved to be plentiful, and we were able to donate approximately 10,800 pounds of pears to the local food bank. Bartlett Pears have to be picked from the tree before they are ripe in order to avoid a pithy texture. We harvested approximately 10.5 tons of the delicious fruit, which took 10 people about 18 hours to pick. 5,092 pounds were sold to a distributor for the Bethel and 4-J school districts, 200 pounds went directly to The Village School, a charter school in Eugene, and 175 pounds went to a CSA based in Bend. The remaining pears were purchased by employees and of course used in our estate restaurant and bakery.

2012 Harvest Moon Celebration for the King Estate Wine Club, Eugene Oregon Tower Club

In the company of good friends, the King Estate Tower Club celebrated the season’s bounty at the 7th Annual Harvest Moon Celebration on Friday, September 14th, 2012. Once again we gathered en masse for an evening of fine food & wine, live music by Liesl Brooks, and the company of CEO Ed King and our head winemaker Jeff Kandarian.

The celebration’s menu featured fresh produce from our estate orchards, gardens, charcuterie kitchen, and bakery, supplemented by the high quality ingredients of three key vendors: fisherman Jacob Farrens of Oregon Pride Seafood, artisan cheesemaker Mariano Battro of La Mariposa, and rancher John Neumeister of Cattail Creek Lamb. These vendors gave special tastes of their products at the reception, and joined us for dinner.

Each of the evening’s courses, designed by Chef Benjamin Nadolny, was carefully considered and paired with a selection from our wine library.
