In the hills southwest of Eugene, Oregon, on a former cattle ranch, lies King Estate Winery. Founded in 1991 by Ed King Jr. and his son, Ed King III, King Estate released its first vintage in 1992 and has been certified organic since 2002. In fact, its 470 acre vineyard, which forms part of a larger integrated ecosystem, with wetlands, and organic gardens and orchards, is the largest contiguous organic vineyard in the United States. Like most Oregon producers, King built its name on Pinot Noir. Today, the Pinot remains rock-solid in quality, but recently, we've been impressed by their stainless-steel fermented Pinot Gris. The basic bottling is made in a bright, crisp, minerally style, while the more expensive Domaine bottling, from the estate's organic grapes, has set a new Oregon standard for its intensity, fullness and sheer scale.
