King Estate Winery Wine Club BBQ The Annual Tower Club BBQ Oregon Wine Pinot Gris PInot Noir

On a perfect summer evening in late July, we had the pleasure of hosting just over 300 wine club members for our annual summer BBQ. Each year we feature a fantastic menu of food and wine, and this year was no exception. Paying tribute to the different styles of BBQ across the country, we served regional specialties from the Pacific Northwest, the Carolinas, Texas and – with a nod to the King Family roots – Kansas.

PACIFIC NORTHWEST

Salmon with Raspberry Pinot Noir Glaze
Roasted Summer Veggies & Confit Potatoes

TEXAS

Tri Tip with Estate BBQ Sauce
Aged White Cheddar Mac & Cheese

NORTH CAROLINA

Watermelon Salad with Feta & Mint

Making their second straight appearance at this event, Portland band “Five Guys Named Moe” rocked hits from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s while club members danced the night away. This 12-piece, horn-driven show band is one of our favorites for live entertainment. A good time was had by all and we expect next year to be no different. It sells out every year, so contact Elizabeth Allcott at 541-942-9874 or towerclub@kingestate.com to make advanced reservations for 2013.
