The King Estate Wine Tasting at The King and Prince

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

As summer winds down to a close and the first crisp, crinkling of fall whispers around the corner, The King and Prince Beach and Golf Resort is making this fall all about wine.  The resort hosted two wine tastings and seminars Wednesday, September 28th, both of which featured The King Estate label.

King Estate Winery

King Estate Winery of Eugene, Oregon celebrates 20 years of winemaking this year, and in addition to producing quality wine, King Estate has become synonymous with producing wines of exceptional quality using organic & sustainable farming methods, meticulous fruit selection, impeccable winemaking practices, and judicious blending.  The beautiful estate of 1,033 acres is certified organic and includes 470 acres of organic vineyards, as well as 30 acres of fruits, vegetables, and flowers. The Estate is crowned by the charming, European-style winery, where the winemaking process is also certified organic.

Vinny D’Agostino, Food and Beverage Director at The King and Prince, officiated the tastings which were presented by Randy Ford and Gary Lynn, representatives from the winery.  The first tasting served those in the trade locally here on St. Simons.  Those in attendance included Guy Trapani, Sommelier from Sea Island’s The Cloister; Mark Gagaliano, Wine Consultant with Harris Teeter Supermarkets; Susan Whitfield, Wine Consultant with Winn Dixie Supermarkets; Tom Delaney, owner of Delaney’s Bistro, and many other servers and bartenders from such local favorites as Coastal Kitchen, Ocean Lodge, and the Sea Island Resort.
