Elk Cove Vineyards Tasting
11:30am - 1:00pm
Address will be provided to ticket holders in early May
Elk Cove Vineyards is one of Oregon's historic family-owned wineries and was founded in 1974 by Pat and Joe Campbell. The five Campbell kids all grew up working summers in the vineyards at Elk Cove – it was truly a family business. Adam Campbell is now responsible for making Elk Cove’s wines. He oversees six vineyard sites with 380 planted acres. The goal has always been to create hand-crafted, Estate-grown cool climate wines that rival the best in the world. As a second-generation winemaker and a 5th generation Oregon farmer, Adam is proud to continue this tradition. At Elk Cove, they are stewards of the land – their sustainability practices start in our vineyards, then continue to the winery and to the broader community. They produce excellent Single Vineyard Pinot Noirs as well as crisp aromatic Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Riesling 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. Join Adam to taste and to learn about this iconic wine, the story behind the name and the standard of excellence that they represent in the Willamette Valley.

Adam Campbell, Owner & Winemaker, Elk Cove Vineyards
Owner and Winemaker Adam Campbell is the son of Elk Cove founders Pat and Joe Campbell and grew up on the property. Like all the Campbell kids, he spent his summers in the vineyard and on the bottling line, but Adam developed a special connection to the vineyards. In 1995 he joined forces with his folks to make Elk Cove’s wines and in 1999 he became head winemaker.
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 350 acres of vines not only helps us make good decisions in viticulture, it also informs our winemaking decisions. Good winemaking is a mixture of art and science… But at the end of the day I need great vineyard sites and impeccable farming to make phenomenal wines.”
