Jessie Russell is the Garden and Landscape Manager for King Estate Winery. A California native, Russell dedicated herself to understanding the unique ecosystem of the Willamette Valley after moving here to attend the University of Oregon’s School of Architecture. Jessie has been designing landscapes and supporting plant life for over 20 years. If you get the opportunity, take an estate tour with Jessie and be transported into a world of Organic Gardening, Oregon Tilth certification, Demeter certified Biodynamic agriculture practices, habitat restoration & stewardship, and perhaps a stroll past a couple of the busy bee hives on the Estate. Afterwards, stop by the Restaurant and enjoy the estate grown fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs that Jessie and her crew grow. When she’s not on the estate she makes time for walking, quilting, reading and of course spending time in her own garden preferably with a glass of Pinot.
