Elk Cove’s founders, Pat and Joe Campbell were honored as “Legacy Winemakers” at the 2015 ¡Salud! Auction. An influential Oregon winemaker or pioneer has been the recipient of this award each year since 2007.
Thank you to everyone who participated and supported this year’s ¡Salud! The Oregon Pinot Noir Auction. Together we raised a record breaking $800,000 to support Oregon’s seasonal vineyard workers and their families. This year we donated an Elk Cove VIP Experience package that included a bubbly tasting at the peak of our Mount Richmond Vineyard and a private dinner for eight people at Elk Cove Vineyards prepared and hosted by Pat and Joe Campbell.
¡Salud! is a unique collaboration between Oregon winemakers and healthcare professionals that has provided access to healthcare services for Oregon’s seasonal vineyard workers and their families for over 24 years. Learn more about it at salud.org. There’s also a great interview with Tuality Healthcare Foundation manager Maria McCandless in MyWineTribe that is worth a read.
