Five Mountain Vineyard
Five Mountain is set on a steep southeast facing slope in the Chehalem Mountains AVA, with a spectacular view of five volcanoes of the Cascade Range: Mount Hood (in the above photo), Mount St. Helens, Mount Rainier, Mount Jefferson, and Mount Adams.
This historic vineyard on loess soil (Laurelwood/windblown silt) was planted in 1978 by the Ponzi family and was purchased by Elk Cove in 2005. Five Mountain now totals 30 acres including the original 4.2 acres of old-vine Pommard clone Pinot Noir. We have also added plantings of Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Gewürztraminer and Riesling to continue perfecting our Alsatian style white wines.
Five Mountain is home to winemaker Adam Campbell’s family and the site of many of our summer gatherings where the view of Mount Hood is always a highlight.
