Elk Cove Vineyards is one of Oregon's historic family-owned wineries and was founded in 1974 by Pat and Joe Campbell. Tucked into the foothills of the Coast Range Mountains, the tasting room has spectacular views of the surrounding vineyards.
Second-generation winemaker Adam Campbell produces excellent Single Vineyard Pinot Noirs as well as crisp aromatic Pinot Gris, Rose, and Chardonnay with an emphasis on estate-grown fruit. Living his whole life among the vines, Adam has a tremendous respect for the land on which the grapes were grown:
“High quality wine really starts in the vineyard. The time I spend stomping through our 300 acres of vines not only helps us make good decisions in viticulture, it also informs our winemaking decisions."
Elk Cove Vineyards National Sales representative Cam Christie will join us in our downtown Minneapolis store tonight from 4-7pm to pour these great wines - and we’ll have some open as soon as 2pm.
