I'm not a big fan of wine, and seldom do I check out wineries, but my girlfriend and I stopped by King Estate as we were driving through Eugene. If paradise existed on Earth, it would be at King Estate Winery. I still have dreams about it.
We arrived early (before opening actually) on a Thursday in July - we were the only ones in the tasting room for a while. I gotta give the bartenders a lot of credit - they are excellent salespeople. Their secret sales formula? Give fun-loving couple generous pours from numerous and various wines. Yes, we were very tipsy and ended up purchasing more wine than I've had in my lifetime. Went on the tour (only because I was drunk, and had to sober up to drive), but I thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful grounds. Lastly, finished our amazing day with lunch on the patio overlooking the vineyard - the best lunch (and burger) ever!
I can not stop recommending and telling people about King Estate. Get there early before the crowds - I promise you'll have an amazing experience even if you're note a wine connoisseur. It's worth a drive wherever you're coming from.
