Elk Cove Vineyards
is one of Oregon’s oldest and most respected wine producers. The focus has always been to produce hand crafted, Estate grown wines that rival the best in the world. Estate vineyards now cover over 250 acres on five separate sites in the Northern Willamette Valley. Steep south-facing slopes, of Willakenzie and Laurelwood soil types, with excellent drainage provide the perfect environment to grow the world class wine grapes that form the basis for creating Elk Cove wines. Proper site selection and meticulous vine management along with harvesting at very low yields creates the concentration and depth of flavor that are hallmarks of Elk Cove wines.
Founded in 1974 by Pat and Joe Campbell, Elk Cove VineyardsElk Cove Vineyards proudly remains a family owned and operated winery. Winemaker Adam Godlee Campbell joined forces with his parents in 1995 to produce outstanding Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. Growing up among the vines on the Elk Cove Estate has instilled a tremendous respect for the soil in which the grapes were grown, therefore his role as Winemaker is one of stewardship over intervention. In the winery, Adam employs gravity flow and gentle handling to protect the inherent qualities of the Estate grown fruit.
Riesling is alive and well in Oregon. At Elk Cove Vineyards it remains an integral part of who we are. Elk Cove Vineyards has been producing luscious Rieslings since 1978. Our Rieslings are treated to the same meticulous vineyard maintenance and strict yield control as our incredible Pinot Noirs and Pinot Gris.
We at Elk Cove hope you enjoy these wines as much as we all enjoyed the creative process in making them.
