  • Best Bargain Oregon Pinot Noir
    “The 2020 Elk Cove Vineyards Estate Willamette Valley is a very well-balanced, full-body pinot with lots of red fruits and violet notes.”
  • Bud Break is Here!
    “Bud break is the beginning of the countdown to harvest,” said Campbell, “while very exciting, it is also nerve-wracking in that we always have four to six weeks of worrying about frost—most seasons we get through this without any problems.” If the buds make it through those iffy early spring weather events, by mid-June they can flower, after which most winemakers breathe a slight sigh of relief.
  • Founders’ Stories With David Adelsheim
    Elk Cove co-founders Pat and Joe Campbell sat down with David Adelsheim to talk about the early days of Oregon wine and their motivations for starting one of the first 10 wineries in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Thank you to David Adelsheim for recording these stories!
