Only the most stubborn autumn leaves remain on our vines this time of year. As the end of autumn nears, we offer a photo gallery of some of the season’s beautiful colors, and bid it farewell as we prepare to welcome winter to the estate.
On the evening of October 13th, King Estate Winery hosted Food for Lane County’s 9th Annual Empty Bowls Dinner and Auction. Over 300 people attended the event, which raised more than $250,000 to directly fight hunger in Lane County, a record for the event. Ed and Jodee King were the events chairs, working closely with the FFLC board and event committee to put this fantastic evening together. All 8 of the prior Empty Bowls dinners were hosted at the FFLC warehouse, and this 9th annual event marked the first time it had been hosted at an offsite facility. Last year King Estate was honored to send our culinary team and ingredients from our estate to the FFLC warehouse, and this year Ed & Jodee were delighted to invite all of the Empty Bowls guests and FFLC staff to the estate. The evening began with the video introduction we made (see below), and a silent auction with drinks and appetizers, followed by a 5-course dinner with wine pairings and a live auction. You can also check out the video we put together for the event last year, which includes interviews from the farmers and ranchers from which King Estate sourced ingredients for the dinner.

For the second year in a row, Eugene Weekly’s The Best of Eugene awarded it’s “Best Wine” title to King Estate Winery. Last year, King Estate also won “Best Winery to Visit” (a category that was not featured this year) and Eugene weekly wrote, “You can’t go wrong with the pinot gris, and the cost won’t break the bank. For a nice long bike ride, or a destination to bring out-of-town friends, a trip to King Estate’s rolling hills, winery and restaurant is the way to go. You can do a wine tour, have a wine tasting and end it all with a delicious dinner.”
The Best of Eugene is an annual special issue of Eugene Weekly. The winners are determined based on community voting. We would like to thank everyone who voted for us!
On the evening of September 29th, King Estate winery hosted Cascades Raptor Center’s 2nd Annual Benefit Dinner. The benefit’s 93 guests enjoyed a 5 course meal with wine pairings, and got the opportunity to get up close and personal with a few of CRC’s resident birds of prey, like Dmitri the Eagle Owl.
This year, the focus of the event was to introduce CRC’s Flight Training Arena Project and to raise funds towards construction costs. CRC regularly receives phone calls from the public inquiring about flight shows, which, without a dedicated space, they are currently unable to provide. Regular flight opportunities would not only attract more visitors to their nature center (which already sees 15,000+ general public visitors annually) and greatly enhance the visitor experience, it would also provide irreplaceable enrichment and training benefits to the wildlife hospital’s resident education birds.

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.
