Named for the herd of Roosevelt Elk that roam the nearby Coast Range Mountains, Elk Cove is one of Oregon's historic vineyards and was first planted in 1974 by Pat and Joe Campbell. Elk Cove remains family owned and second generation winemaker Adam Campbell is known for Single Vineyard Pinot Noirs, aromatic white wines like Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc, and winery exclusives like their Chardonnay, Brut Rosé, Rieslings and a sweet dessert wine they call "Ultima"
Interesting for travelers, Elk Cove is one of the few Oregon wineries that farm multiple vineyard sites in the Willamette Valley. Their six sites span two sub-AVAs (American Viticultural Areas) of the Willamette Valley and their fruit is grown on all three of the major soil types favored for growing grapes in this area: Jory, Laurelwood and Willakenzie.
Elk Cove is also known for the spectacular view of the Coast Range Mountains and vineyards of the bowl-like property that surround their tasting room. It's a three mile drive up from Gaston, Oregon, that's totally worth the view.
