If you are traveling in Oregon and looking for a great place to spend the evening….look no further!
King Estate Winery is about 45 minutes outside of Eugene but, when you get there, you feel like you have arrived in Italy.
There is an outside terrace where you can enjoy the spectacular view, try their wines and have some dinner.
We headed out there last night for my Dad’s 90th birthday. I only hope that someone will take ME to a place like that when I am his age. And I hope I will still be wanting to sample wine and try new dishes.
I had an incredible beet salad – which I immediately dove into. I quickly realized that I should have stopped to photograph it first! The waiter graciously took my camera back into the kitchen where the chef took multiple photos of the next beet salad that he assembled. (Out of the dozens of pictures of this beet salad, I will just select one to share here!)
My husband tried the charcuterie plate:
My Dad – always willing to try something new – had the Seafood Sampler: dungeness crab and scallop terrine, confit spot prawn, and smoked trout.
A number of years ago, we made some custom wine coasters and key chains for King Estate. They must have sold out because I didn’t see any out there in their gift area. I guess we better give them a call.
But, in the meantime, I hope you will stop in! You surely will be glad that you did!
