The original purpose for our visit was the winery's Crab and Wine Festival in the Vineyard Pavilion. It was a great experience, if a little on the pricey side. From the windows of the Pavilion we could see the Winery on the hilltop. Despite it being January and the "dead" of winter, the vineyard was beautiful... it drew us up the hill after the meal was finished. The building itself looks like a monastery -- simplistic architecture, but massive. The view is stunning and the grounds are exquisite. Still, while the appearances were welcoming, the attitude / personality of the staff was a bit stuffy. Maybe we weren't dressed expensively enough? (Wife had flats and a sweater, I had slacks and an open collar shirt without a tie or sports coat.) Maybe they are just a little too full of themselves for common folk?

We had an amazing experience at King Estate. The setting was beautiful, perched above the fog. The wine was outstanding and the staff friendly and knowledgable. We enjoyed the tasting so much we decided to stay for lunch. Good choice! The meal was top-notch. I highly recommend King Estate and will certainly return.

King Estate is an experience every wine connoisseur should have. From the extensive facility tour to the warm and inviting restaurant, a visit will not disappoint. They feature property grown organic foods and wine specializing in pairings of the two. KIng Estate offers breathtaking views with ambiance to suit even the most discriminating guests. Summer is a magical time which allows for outdoor seating to immerse yourself in the gorgeous surroundings.

I went to King Estate Winery because it was included in a wine tour I took last year. This winery was by far the best in accommodations, wines to taste and service. This was the only winery I purchased wine at and would buy again.
