"Fine wine has a destiny," Robin Pfeiffer told us during our lively morning visit to his Pfeiffer Winery on the Wine Bloggers Conference 2012 pre-excursion to Eugene, Oregon.

My first sip of King Estate wine was back in 2004 living in Seattle. Since then, they've been on my 'must visit wineries' list. When this year's Wine Bloggers Conference, to be held in Oregon, announced a pre-conference trip to Eugene with a King Estate Winery visit, I finally had my excuse to visit the [...]
