Tasting Room & Wine Club
Direct Sales Manager
Katherine joined the Elk Cove team in January 2017. Her wine interest was piqued in 1998 by a visit to the Bonny Doon Vineyard Tasting Room in the Santa Cruz Mountains, which ultimately led to selling Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for both Adelsheim Vineyard and Bergström Wines. When she’s not working, you’ll find her enjoying the perks of living in the Pacific Northwest, including hiking the Gorge, biking along the Bend River Trail or enjoying some of the finer beverages crafted in Oregon.
Tasting Room Manager
Elissa joined the Elk Cove team in March 2017. Her interest in wine started in 2007, her last year at Linfield College, when she started taking care of a small vineyard outside Hillsboro and making wine from that year’s harvest. Since then Elissa has worked in Sales and Hospitality at Adelsheim Vineyard, Domaine Drouhin Oregon and Blizzard Wines. She is a born and raised Oregonian who enjoys hiking the Pacific Northwest, exploring the Oregon coast and enjoying the food, beverages and urban setting of Portland.
Wine Club Manager
Taylor joined the Elk Cove team in February 2018. Her entry into the world of wine was circuitous; dancing across the globe led her sampling wines of the world. A California native, Taylor arrived in Oregon on a Graduate Teaching Fellowship at the University of Oregon. When she’s not working, you can find her volunteering on the Wallow Arts Foundation board, a local non-profit rooted in arts education, getting her hands in the dirt or studying to become a certified sommelier.
