This is our classic take on Chardonnay in a decidedly Oregon style: fresh, fruit-forward and just lightly oaked for richness. We grow Dijon Chardonnay clones well-suited to our cool climate at our Mount Richmond Vineyard.

Pinot Noir

The varietal that put Oregon on the international wine map. We make several Single Vineyard Pinot Noirs as well as our flagship Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, made with fruit from all 6 of our vineyard sites.

  • 20 Best Willamette Valley Pinot Noirs
    “Precise, taut, lifted, and balletlike on the palate. Delicious cooling flavors of fresh pomegranates and cranberries interwoven with citrus and spice notes. One of the best Elk Cove Pinots in years. The steeply sloped vineyard has a view of five volcanoes in the Cascade Mountain Range.” – Karen Macneil
  • Project Elevate The Estate
    In September 2023 we are breaking ground on new construction at Elk Cove, creating a modern, Northwest-style addition that takes full advantage of our beautiful site tucked into the foothills of the Oregon Coast Range. We are keeping our current tasting room, also known as the Roosevelt Room, however, the original octagonal tasting room built in 1981, which operated as our Retail Shop from 2020-2023, is going away. In its place, we’re constructing a larger rectangular building with clean lines, big glass doors, high ceilings and generous covered patios designed to feature the sweeping views of our vineyards.
