On a perfect July evening, we had the pleasure of hosting just over 300 wine club members for our annual summer BBQ. Each year we feature a fantastic menu of food and wine, and this year was no exception. Paying tribute to the different styles of BBQ across the country, we served regional specialties from the Pacific Northwest, Texas, and Tennessee, alongside mixed grill from our own charcuterie kitchen.  Guests took home freshly picked organic blueberries from our garden as party favors.

While some guests played lawn games, others danced the night away to Portland band “Five Guys Named Moe”, making their third straight appearance at this event. This 12-piece show band, rocking hits from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, is one of our favorites for live entertainment. A good time was had by all!  This event sells out every year, so contact Elizabeth Allcott at 541-942-9874 or towerclub@kingestate.com to make advanced reservations for 2014.
