Our friend Laurin Huse, the Rehabilitation Director at Cascades Raptor Center, arrived at King Estate Winery on a breezy but sunny day with four boxes. Each box contained a rehabilitated 4-month-old barn owl that came to the Cascades Raptor Center as an orphan. Some baby birds were only days old when they arrived at the center. Once they arrived at CRC the birds were paired with an adult owl foster mom who taught them everything they needed to know to survive in the wild. When they proved they can survive in the wild by demonstrating their ability to catch live prey in a specialized hunting enclosure, these young owls got the opportunity to return to the wild.
The King Estate Visitor Center, which encompasses our restaurant and tasting bar, will close at 4:00 PM on Friday, September 16th for a private Tower Club event.
The summer season is in full swing at King Estate. Willamette Valley summers are exceptional, and there is never a better time to visit the estate and enjoy lunch with a bottle of wine on our terraces. The spring flowers on our organic fruit trees have transformed into small apples, figs, and cherries soon to be enjoyed by visitors ordering our cheese and fruit plate.
Weddings occur most often during the summer due to the Willamette Valley’s mild weather and King Estate’s beautiful, green vines. With full time event planners on site and catering from our restaurant and bakery, a wedding at the estate is a perfect celebration.
Each year King Estate produces a new harvest t-shirt to commemorate the vintage and in 2011 we will complete our 20th harvest; a very special milestone in the history of our company. This contest is for the design of our 20th Anniversary 2011 Harvest Tee. The winning design will take home a $400 cash prize! The deadline is Wednesday, July 20th at 10:00 am PST. The t-shirt needs to include a King Estate logo as well as some reference to the 20th vintage. We are artful people; we like subtlety and mystery. Your interpretation does not need to be entirely literal or entirely abstract – we want you to have the artistic freedom to come up with something fantastic.
