King Estate Winery

Last weekend, our friends, Brian and Patty, invited us to go to an amazing annual event in Eugene, Oregon, at a wonderful winery- King Estate Winery. It was my 54th birthday so they decided to treat us!!
They specialize in Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir. Each year, they hold an "All You Can Eat Crabfest and All You Can Drink Pinot Gris" event in January. We also went wine tasting before the dinner and, of course, bought some pinot noirs in addition to pinot gris...

The food was fabulous! We actually did try the fantastic side dishes (in very small amounts! ha ha) but the Crab was king.
Roasted Kale and Garlic
Spicy udon noodle salad with shrimp
cole slaw and potato salad
incredible crab chowder and some flavored aoili and butter...I loved the Saffron Aioli and Kevin loved the roasted  garlic infused butter
As much freshly steamed crab as we wanted....

and dessert 'bites' that were absolutely delicious!


All desserts (like all the food!) is local, sustainable and made in their kitchens...lemon tarts, meringues, homemade marshmallows, brownie bites, jello cups, dark chocolate cups. gingersnap cookies, chocolate chip cookies, raspberry bars, and more...
Here we are...almost too stuffed to walk out...thankfully, we arranged for a Designated Driver! Thanks, Pammy!!! You are awesome!!
