Named for the herd of Roosevelt Elk that roam the nearby Coast Range...

Named for the herd of Roosevelt Elk that roam the nearby Coast Range Mountains, Elk Cove is one of Oregon's historic vineyards and was first planted in 1974 by Pat and Joe Campbell. Elk Cove remains family owned and second generation winemaker Adam Campbell is known for Single Vineyard Pinot Noirs, aromatic white wines like Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc, and winery exclusives like their Chardonnay, Brut Rosé, Rieslings and a sweet dessert wine they call "Ultima"

Interesting for travelers, Elk Cove is one of the few Oregon wineries that farm multiple vineyard sites in the Willamette Valley. Their six sites span two sub-AVAs (American Viticultural Areas) of the Willamette Valley and their fruit is grown on all three of the major soil types favored for growing grapes in this area: Jory, Laurelwood and Willakenzie.

Elk Cove is also known for the spectacular view of the Coast Range Mountains and vineyards of the bowl-like property that surround their tasting room. It's a three mile drive up from Gaston, Oregon, that's totally worth the view.

We did winetasting of both suggestions they had. The lady was very friendly and gave us full attention to understand, their wines, taste and background of the winery. We had snow, but I can imagine the suroundings are great in the spring and summer.

This was one of our favorites. La boheme was especially tasty. The staff was friendly. Although the vineyards were covered in snow; it was still pretty.

We went with some out of town guests who wanted to sample some of the local wines. We stopped at several vineyards in the area and this was by far our favorite. We all even joined their wine club, that is how much we liked the wines. The place is on a beautiful hill and we were able to sit... More

Beautiful tasting room and views. The wine was outstanding. Share a tasting with someone and do the standard and reserve- so many wonderful flavors. I enjoyed every one of their wines. They have maps of the different AVAs, and are knowledgeable about the different soil and microclimate at each site. Both indoor and outdoor areas. Take the back road (read... More

This was one of 5 wineries we visited in the Willamette Valley, and it was our favorite ! The grounds and views are really beautiful ! We had a very knowledgeable server. The pinot noir was exceptional, and I bought a bottle to take back to NJ. Would love to visit again !!
