Dining Guide: Wine Month in the Valley

King Estate Winery Provided

Spring and summer in the Willamette Valley are truly special seasons.
Warm days are perfect for hikes and country drives, and cool evenings make ideal times to watch sunsets while enjoying picnics on the grass.
May is ”Oregon Wine Month,” and with many wineries to choose from, visitors and residents have plenty of options for high-quality wine, created right here in the valley.
Owned and operated by the King family, King Estate Winery has been creating exceptional quality wines since 1991. King Estate Winery creates world-class pinot gris, pinot noir and other varieties under the NxNW (North by Northwest) label.
Just in time for Mother’s Day, King Estate Winery is featuring wines with a national reputation, including a rosé and Sauvignon Blanc.
King Estate Winery also features an on-site wine bar and restaurant. Open for brunch, lunch and dinner, diners can enjoy housemade, organic and locally sourced delicacies. Customers are encouraged to call ahead for reservations.
With the lavender about to bloom, now is the time to visit the vineyards. Tours are also available, allowing customers to explore the 470 acres of grape vineyards.
