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.

The second tasting was hosted by Aaron Krisfalusi and Jason Degoursay of The Still and Winery (www.thestillandwinery.com) here on St. Simons.  The cost was $15 per person and included 6 wines and appetizers.  Each tasting featured King Estate wines including:

Signature Pinot Gris 2008- rated by Wine Spectator| Top 100 Wines | Wine & Spirits rated it 92 Points

Signature Pinot Noir 2010 Vintage- rated by Wine Spectator at 89 points and declared BEST BUY by Wine Enthusiast at 90 points

Acrobat Pinot Gris 2010 and Pinot Noir 2009 Oregon, both received over 90 points from Wine & Spirits AND Wine Enthusiast

Domiane Pinot Gris 2009 and Doamine Pinot Noir 2008, This wine has a very limited production, and the grape clones are from France.

Vin Glace Oregon Pinot Gris 2007 (This wine is a style of ice wine, or dessert wine)

NxNW “Wallua Benches” Vineyard Riesling 2010- featured on the cover of December 2010 Wine Spectator

This was The Still’s first wine tasting hosted in conjunction with The King and Prince, and we look forward to partnering with them again in the future.  Keep an eye on our Facebook page, Twitter feed, and blog for more information about our upcoming plans to produce a series of informal, relaxed, and fun wine events.

Remember, the best way to ward off the chill of fall is by sharing a great bottle of wine with a great group of friends.
