American Kestrels Released by Cascades Raptor Center

August 30 2010
American Kestrels Released at King Estate Winery in Eugene, OR Organic Vineyard Producing Pinot Gris & Pinot Noir

Kit and Laurin from Cascades Raptor Center were out last week to release some American Kestrels. The Kestrels are placed in a nesting box, and a mesh screen is taped over the door. In order to calm down and become acclimated to their new surroundings, the Kestrels stay in the box with the screen on for 2-3 hours.

Head over heels for Acrobat

August 18 2010


This is the second year in the life of Acrobat, the brand we introduced last year with the 2008 vintage. Acrobat showcases Oregon’s preeminent varietals, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir. The inaugural release was extremely well received, earning 89 points or better from all of the major publications, and heralded for its unprecedented value by the press and trade. Much more importantly, you, our wine-loving friends, gave us great feedback about the wines and we flew through the first vintage. We set out to deliver affordable wines of quality, and the response we got from the public indicated that we hit the nail on the head.

What is Sustainable Food and Drink?

August 12 2010


Food For Thought, a new radio show on Eugene station KLCC 89.7 FM airs on Sundays at noon. The hosts are Boris Wiedenfeld and Ryan Dawe-Stotz. Boris is the manager of Sundance Wine Cellars and Ryan is the “wine and food guy” at Marché Provisions (Marché founder Stephanie Pearl Kimmel was King Estate’s first culinary director). Both are active in the local food and wine community and are dedicated to shedding light on what “sustainability” means and why we should care about it. The guest host of the July 18 episode was Adam Bernstein, executive chef at Adam’s Sustainable Table who is well-known for using local and organic produce. Adam says sustainability is “about being able to create a dynamic where we are able to use renewable resources to have the smallest possible impact on our environment and the world at large, preserving as much for future generations as humanly possible.”
