King Estate Organic Buena Vista Lavender Harvest & Distillation

King Estate Organic Buena Vista Lavender Harvest and Distilliation VIDEO

We are best known for our exceptional wines (obviously), but we also grow and harvest exceptional organic lavender. Garden manager Jessie Russell and her crew care for more than ¾ of an acre of lavender. Varieties include white ‘Cape Blanco,’ a small crop of ‘Provence,’ and our most prevalent variety, ‘Buena Vista.’ ’Buena Vista’ was developed by Dr. Don Roberts, a retired professor from OSU and a lavender farmer himself. It is an exceptional varietal of lavender. Roberts distills the organic King Estate lavender at Premier Botanicals in Independence, Oregon.

This year, the estate produced 3.25 gallons of essential lavender oil which we will use to make lotion, soap, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, and of course essential oil. You can shop for our estate lavender products by clicking here or by visiting the King Estate visitor center.

Watch the video to take a closer look at the lavender harvest and distillation processes:

      Is there anyway I could purchase a small amt of the oil?  I’m a home brewer and I make a really nice Lavender Pale Ale that would be that much better with a pure product.

      Thanks,
      Daniel
