King Estate Winery Retains Balzac Communications
Napa Agency to Provide Public Relations and Marketing Services
Napa, CA (November 2, 2015) – Oregon’s leading wine producer, established in 1991, has retained Balzac Communications and Marketing as its agency of record. As the top wine public relations agency, Balzac Communications will help to promote the wines of King Estate Winery to industry trade and consumer media.
The portfolio of wines produced at the King family’s world-class estate is a testament to the dedication and vision of three generations of King family members, who bring an organic and holistic approach to the sustainable crafting of high-quality wines. In addition, the winery’s environmentally sustainable practices ensure the future of the estate for generations to come.
“The King Estate Winery is well known not just for its wine, and in particular its outstanding Pinot Gris,” says Michael Wangbickler, CEO and Partner of Balzac. “With nearly 30 acres of organic orchards, vegetable and lavender gardens, the estate provides produce on-site for the visitors center and restaurant, as well as giving back to the community, with supplies provided to local charities as hunger relief.”
Situated at the tip of the Willamette Valley just southwest of Eugene in Oregon, the family-owned and operated estate includes nearly 500 acres of hand-grown certified organic, tilth and salmon safe vines, with annual production highlighting the role of King Estate Winery as an Oregon producer on the international stage. King Family Wines encompasses the King Estate, Acrobat and North by Northwest brands.
“This is an exciting time for the family and team here at King Estate Winery,” says CEO Ed King III. “As ambassadors for the Oregon region, we look forward to partnering with Balzac to continue telling the story of Oregon’s outstanding wines to the world.”
