Our inaugural Wine Country 5K was a great success. Two weeks before the event we had to shut down registration due to overwhelming response and to save space for on-site registrants. This being our first year putting on the race, we wanted to make sure we could accommodate the parking needs and keep the runners safe. We ended up with 479 runners and many more spectators. We look forward to building on this success next year and hope you’ll join us! Big thanks to our friends at the Eugene Marathon for helping us put this together.
FOOD for Lane County’s annual Chefs’ Night Out fundraiser took place at the Hult Center in downtown Eugene on April 5, 2011. King Estate Winery has been the Title Sponsor of the event for the last three years.
The best restaurants, wineries, and breweries in Eugene donated their time and products to create a memorable evening full of delicious food and drink. All money earned from ticket sales to the event went directly to FOOD for Lane County.
Join us at King Estate on Saturday, April 23rd, one week before the Eugene Marathon, for a scenic 5K run through the rolling hills of our certified organic vineyards. We have partnered with Eugene Marathon to ensure a quality event. Registration is free for Tower Club members and runners registered for any 2011 Eugene Marathon Event.

The King Estate Crab Fest has become a very popular tradition at our winery in Eugene, Oregon. Held annually in late January at the height of Oregon’s Dungeness Crab season, the event showcases our Oregon Pinot Gris alongside succulent steamed crab. The all you can eat buffet features crab with all kinds of side dishes and an array of flavored butters and aiolis. We serve several different bottlings of Pinot Gris and an amazing selection of desserts from our estate bakery. This year the popularity of our event reached new heights as we hosted nearly 600 guests across 7 seatings.
