King Estate

King Estate Winery is an organic winery located southwest of Eugene, Oregon, United States near the community of Lorane. Matt Kramer of The Oregonian considers King Estate the benchmark producer of Pinot gris (aka Pinot grigio) in the country.[2] While the winery also makes Pinot noir and limited amounts of Chardonnay, it is mainly credited with bringing the Pinot gris grape varietal into national consciousness.[3]

The winery was founded in 1991 by Ed King, Jr. and his son, Ed King III. The estate itself, at 1,033 acres (4.18 km2), is Oregon Tilth Certified Organic[4] and includes 465 acres (1.88 km2) of organic vineyards, as well as 30 acres (120,000 m2) of fruits, vegetables and flowers.[5] The visitor center features a restaurant and wine bar. Complimentary wine tasting and winery tours are available as well as full lunch and dinner menus that incorporate estate and locally grown organic ingredients.[6]

In the 2007 edition of Wine & Spirits magazine's annual restaurant poll, a survey of only the top Zagat rated restaurants across the United States, King Estate Pinot gris was the number one ranked domestic wine in the Pinot gris/Pinot grigio category, and number two overall in the category, the highest rank for an Oregon producer in the 18-year history of the poll
