Elk Cove Vineyards purchased Goodrich Vineyard in March of 2014. A 69-acre property planted with 21 acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Goodrich sits just outside the town of Yamhill, Oregon in the heart of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA.
Goodrich Vineyard was planted in 2007 with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in high-density format. The property boasts the exact same marine sediment (Willakenzie) soil as our Mount Richmond property and lies just a few miles from our Winery Estate Vineyard.
“We always look out for great opportunities to secure grapes from top vineyard sites in great AVA’s in the Northern Willamette Valley. The chance to procure 21 acres of immaculately farmed Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines in an area we knew was top notch was too much to pass up. Top reserve quality and single-vineyard Pinot Noirs have been made from this site by our friends at Raptor Ridge, Soter, King Estate and many others.” – Elk Cove Winemaker Adam Campbell
