On November 17th, the Oregon Ducks suffered a heartbreaking loss to the Stanford Cardinal. Stanford upset the Ducks winning by a 37 yard field goal in overtime. It was an unfortunate loss that was felt deeply by Duck fans everywhere as it derailed their path to the BCS Championship. We are sure that next year the Ducks will be back at it again, resuming their dogged pursuit of a BCS National Title, and continuing their meteoric rise to legendary college football status.
While the loss was somber, we couldn’t help but be elated to see our own winery featured during the nationally televised primetime broadcast, with beautiful shots of the property, our facility, and our wine as well as some hefty endorsement from the hosts of the broadcast.
Watch the video above to see the clip of King Estate that was featured during the broadcast, it was a very proud moment for us at the winery, and we would love to share it with all of you.

King Estate stood out in the 4th Annual Register Guard Reader’s Choice Awards. We are honored to have won the reader voted contest in two categories as Eugene’s Best Local Winery and Best Wedding Venue. Make sure to check out the rest of the winners. We also pulled in second place for Eugene’s Best Outdoor Dining option, not bad considering we are 20 miles out of town!
Earlier this year we also took home “Best Winery” in the Eugene Weekly’s annual ‘Best of Eugene’. They summed it up pretty well:
King Estate, with its pristine setting in the heart of the Willamette Valley’s wine country provides the perfect spot to sample its array of masterful wine. One can sit and enjoy a glass and a gourmet meal overlooking the certified organic vineyard in a most picturesque setting. This year the vineyard celebrates its twentieth anniversary and continues to produce some of the most exceptional wines with grapes grown in its own vineyard as well as from various other Northwest regions. King Estate’s creations illustrate time and again why the Northwest is known for its wine.
