King Estate Wins "Best Savory Bite" at Chefs’ Night Out

May 23 2013

Chefs' Night Out 2013

This year’s annual Chefs’ Night Out proved, again, to be a successful fundraiser for FOOD for Lane County, with 100% of the ticket sales going directly to local hunger efforts. This gathering showcases all of your favorite Eugene restaurants, caterers, wineries and microbreweries under one roof. They offered samples of snack-sized bites of food, beverage, and dessert. King Estate offered tiny sandwiches made with Lamb Belly Bacon on Local Swiss Gougere with Green Apple, an assorted Charcuterie Plate with Saucisson Sec, Smoked Duck Breast Speck, Pork and Black Truffle Paté, and Espresso Panna Cotta with Cinnamon Spiced Donut. We also offered a variety of King Estate wine to pair.

Congratulations to all the winners: Best Overall Bite – Marché Restaurant.  Best Presentation/Hospitality – Sweet Life. Best Savory Bite – King Estate Winery. Best Vegetarian Bite – Govinda’s. Best Sweet Bite – Red Wagon Creamery.

Tower Club Release Party and Tasting

May 21 2013

Tower Club Release and Party

Last week we had the pleasure of hosting close to 600 guests over three days at our quarterly members-only tasting. We were graced by unseasonably gorgeous spring weather and held the event on the north patio of the Visitor Center. Tower Club members tasted six newly released wines and enjoyed some delightful nibbles prepared by Sous Chef Sean Winder, including Manchego and Quince Bruschetta with Pistachios, Salmon Cakes with Remoulade, and Pork Belly and Rouge River Blue Cheese Arancini with Roasted Tomato Aioli. Many members also opted to stay for dinner in our estate restaurant.

Invitations to these private tastings are extended exclusively to Tower Club members. Along with this benefit, members also receive limited-production wines, discounts on wine purchases, and complimentary tasting at the wine bar.

For more information about membership, please contact Tower Club Manager Elizabeth Allcott at towerclub@kingestate.com or 541-942-9874, ext. 102.
