Food & Wine Names us Best Winery to Visit in Oregon
Food & Wine Magazine has named us one of 20 “Best Oregon Wineries to Visit“.
“That Oregon, with its wet weather and short summers, could ever be famous for wine was in doubt until as recently as 30 years ago, when it began to receive international acclaim. Today the Willamette Valley is the epicenter of a world-class wine region famous for some of the country’s best Pinot Noir.
Elk Cove is one of Oregon’s pioneering wineries, established by the Campbell family back in the 1970s in the foothills of the Coastal Range (which also provides the mountain views out the windows). The wine has reached new heights under second generation Adam Campbell…”
We are proud to have made this list, there are so many great places to visit here in the Willamette Valley. Check out the whole list at foodandwine.com
Year’s Best Pinot Noirs
Three Elk Cove wines made Wine & Spirits Magazine’s list of the Year’s Best U.S. Pinot Noirs.
San Francisco based Wine and Spirits Magazine tasted more than 1,140 American Pinot Noirs in 2015. Of those, only 149 received a score high enough to make their Year’s Best U.S. Pinot Noirs so this is a huge honor. Included on the list are:
92 Points: Elk Cove 2013 Five Mountain Pinot Noir
91 Points: Elk Cove 2013 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
90 Points: Elk Cove 2013 Clay Court Pinot Noir
We are proud of our winemakers for creating wines that impress in a year that many considered a more difficult vintage for Oregon. This list will post in their April 2016 issue.
Great Northwest Wine Top 100
Each year Andy Perdue and Eric Degerman of Great Northwest Wine taste thousands of wines blind. At the end of each year they publish their top 100 wines and we are proud to announce our 2014 Pinot Gris made the list.
“Vintage after vintage, Adam Campbell consistently crafts one of the premier Pinot Gris in the Pacific Northwest, and this is no exception. This opens with aromas of stone fruit, lemon, lychee and spearmint, followed by lively flavors of orchard fruit, including white peach. This is a perfect seafood wine, especially crab or scallops.”
